[URGENT] I'm working a website MetaQil which is initially built on WordPress CMS integrated with Woocommerce but I'm not satisfied with its functionality and users also having issue in placing the orders. Is there any easy way to migrate to my store to Shopify without affecting the user experience?

Hello @JacobRobin,

 

Shopify provides various migration tools and services to help you transfer your products, customer data, and other relevant information from your store.

 

Here are the main steps of migration to Shopify:

  • revise the functionality
  • decide what data you need to migrate
  • migrate and configure the data
  • set up the needed apps
  • work on the store design
  • delta migration
  • go live

Currently, there are three popular data migration tools/apps that can significantly help to import products from your store to Shopify.
These are:

  • Matrixify
  • Litextension
  • Cart2Cart

It is worth mentioning that you should optimize your store’s content to not lose organic traffic. Shopify is an SEO friendly platform, so the major steps you need to take are to:

  • configure 301 redirects
  • revise pages’ meta titles and meta descriptions
  • submit an XML sitemap
  • continue creating keyword-rich quality content to increase a visibility of your website
  • throughout the search engines
  • optimize the performance of your store

Good choice. It's relatively easy to get a Shopify store setup and get selling online. You have the option of moving your entire site over to Shopify or just the store portion of it. 

 

The basic outline of what you'd be doing is exporting your products from WooCommerce and importing them into Shopify. Both e-commerce platforms have import/export functionality via a spreadsheet.

 

So 1.) Get your Shopify account created and create your store. 2.) Get your products exported 3.) Import them into Shopify.

 

It should be easy to do this with minimal impact to your customers.

Thank you for your response! I appreciate your suggestion. I have decided to move my entire site over to Shopify.

To guide me through the procedure, I was wondering if there are any tutorials available for migrating a website from WooCommerce to Shopify? I would greatly appreciate it if you could point me in the right direction.
