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 & 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.
