How do I migrate my existing Shopify store to a new Shopify store?

28 2 4

I changed my company name, so I got a new Shopify store with the new company name.  How do I migrate my existing Shopify store from the old store to the new store?  I exported the store theme files, but I don't see a way to upload those to the new store.

You can upload the exported theme in your new store from : Online store -> themes -> theme library -> upload theme.

Let me know if you need any help with it.

Hi @pmartensen,

Can I ask which aspect of the store you want to change with the new company name? If it is just the URL, then changing and getting a new store might be more hassle than it's worth as once you get a custom domain that URL is more of a store ID and not public. You can change the store name for the public side of things in the settings by taking these steps:

Settings > General > Store name


If you definitely want to go the route of starting a new store, Shopify has a guide on duplicating a store. Some aspect can be uploaded via CSV, but other information will still need to be entered manually. The one thing I did want to make you aware of with a transfer like this, is with the theme. 

When you buy a theme from the Shopify Theme Store, that theme is licensed only to the store that you originally buy it for. If you want to transfer a theme license to another store, then you need to contact Shopify Support.

I wonder if this is where you are encountering your problem with uploading the new theme files to the store?
