Scrutinize new site

Before launching the site, you must test the new site to look for any issues. Identify user journey issues, including canonical tags, XML sitemaps. If issues are identified earlier, you can avoid delays in site launch.

Index updating

Product category URLs in Wix can be different in Shopify once after the migration. Make sure you create redirects for each of these products. This act helps search engines recognize the items and index them.

Step 1

From your Shopify admin panel, click "Online Store" -> "Domains" -> "Transfer domains".

Step 2

Enter the domain that you want to transfer to Shopify, click "Next"

Step 3

Click "Verify domain". You will see a "Domain unlocked" message

Step 4

In the Verification code box, enter the authorization code and click "Next" -> "Buy and transfer"
