Hi @jasonroy1122,


It's great to see you here. Welcome to Shopify Community and I hope you will benefit from the forum.


To comprehensively understand the whole process of migrating to Shopify, you can refer to this document


Personally, I think using an automated data transferring solution would be the most proper choice for you. Regarding this, you can have a look at LitExtension app as it is one of the best migration method out there. I used to experience it and overall, it didn't require steep learning curve and I could transfer data easily. Besides, the most impressive thing about them is that they are able to support migrating from +120 carts including custom ones to Shopify. 


From my stand point, I saw many clients had given LitExtension positive feedback on G2 and TrustPilot which made them become a credible brand in the field. To exactly know the budget, you should visit their website to use the price calculator for generating the migration cost. As far as I know, LitExtension allows customers to have a free 20 entities demo at first which will help them evaluate their solution quality.


Hope this helps.
