Data analysis

Spend time before commencing any migration to really get to know your results. This involves looking at all the various types of data and any special sets of data that exist, mapping them out to the right location in Shopify.


Migrating orders

Consider migrating all your orders including details such as order numbers, ordered items, related customer details, taxes paid, and total prices when you think about migrating your ecommerce shop.


Migrating products & customers

Migrate your customer profiles including details such as full names, shipping and billing addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses, and your product data details such as titles, SKUs, descriptions, photos, tags, barcodes, variants, and weights.


Redirects and monitoring

Once the migration is complete, consider creating redirects from old URLs to new URLs to support SEO. A website migration that involves changes to important URLs is doomed to fail if the old URLs do not redirect correctly to the new ones so monitor these for 4 weeks.
