Migration on Shopify: the Data We Transfer

In a nutshell: there's a possibility to move almost all the info you'll need to have in the new online store. Design elements and extensions are transferable too, but some can turn out to be incompatible, so extra adjustments might be needed.

  • Product Data

    Names, SKUs, prices, attributes, tags, categories, and other info.

  • Customer Data

    Names, emails, addresses, credit cards, sign-up data, loyalty program info, etc.

  • Order Data

    The whole order history of your clientele with all details.

  • Pages and Content

    Product descriptions, other sections, and design elements.

  • Images and Media

    We'll migrate the photos, videos, gifs, and marketing banners without quality loss.

  • SEO Metadata

    All SEO data will be moved alongside the rest info to preserve your position in Google.

  • Customer Reviews and Ratings

    This precious data will be available on the new website as well.

Shopify Migration Solutions We Offer

The more data you need to move, the more professional aid it requires. In fact, there are a few options if you want to switch from other eCommerce platforms to Shopify, including using a special app. But too many things can go wrong: missing info, duplicated content, system errors, etc. Then you need to fix this manually, and the task gets even more messy. We highly recommend selecting a full-fledged Shopify migration solution. With Onilab, not only will the process be frictionless, but also we can further customize the store and enhance the UX.

  • Data Migration
    The centerpiece of the Shopify migration process is importing the data from the previous platform. After it's complete, we double-check whether the product and customer data, business logic, media files, and marketing content are intact. "No piece from databases will be left behind" is a first commandment for each Shopify migration expert we have.
  • Custom Development
    If you see the need to extend functionality or refine the UX/UI of your newly created Shopify platform, tell us. With custom coding and design services, we'll fully gear the store for your target audience. We also conduct performance and conversion rate optimization to ensure more visitors reach the very end of the sales funnel and make purchases.
  • Theme and Design Migration
    As we perform Shopify migration, we're most often able to transfer the page templates too. Some changes can be needed, though, to adapt the design to a new CMS. While some clients prefer to keep their current UX/UI, some deem the migration as an opportunity to create fresh mock-ups. We have creative yet business-focused designers to analyze the current customer journey in your store and improve the user experience to achieve a better conversion rate.
  • SEO Migration and Optimization
    Properly performed re-platforming shouldn't noticeably affect your SERP position, and it's another reason for the involvement of professionals. We'll create URL redirects to save the SEO ranking you've been gaining for years. Our developers and SEO specialists will check all the settings and make sure everything works correctly. If not, we'll fix issues and can help with further SEO optimization.
  • Payment Gateway Integration
    Shopify has a convenient in-built payment system, but the more options you provide to customers, the better. Our Shopify migration agency helps to integrate various third-party payment gateways (PayPal, Stripe, Amazon Pay, Klarna, and more).
  • App and Integration Migration
    Most likely, your current store has some custom extensions and integrations with third-party platforms. When migrating to Shopify, we can transfer and configure some of them; for others, the better way is to find similar applications from the Shopify app store. And if features migration is impossible and no pre-made app fits your needs, we offer custom app development. When it comes to integrations, we can reconnect the store with product and inventory management systems, CRMs, and ERPs.
  • Conversion Rate Optimization
    Store migration isn’t only data migration, customization, and functionality optimization. Some snags that were irrelevant to the previous platform may arise on the purchase journey. After moving the website to a new CMS, we reconsider its solutions on the purchase funnel. The result? A seamless journey with maximum engagement and conversions.

Shopify Migration Services FAQ

How long does it take to migrate to Shopify?

Shopify migration service comprises assessing your existing store, data migration (including an entire customer database, features migrations, and so on), setting up, and testing a new Shopify store. The task is quite large per se, and there are many more factors to consider, like the current platform type, the store's data size, the number of custom solutions, and third-party add-ons. Tell us about your project, and we'll prepare a quote.

What are the steps involved in a Magento to Shopify migration?

Firstly we understand the peculiarities of your Magento store and evaluate the needed resources. Then goes the migration stage when Onilab's Shopify migration experts "copy" the whole data array and "paste" to a chosen Shopify version. It's all the existing data, including product variants, product categories, each and every billing address, shipping address, meta description, SEO URLs, and so on and so forth. Finally, we need to connect all the parts (from apps and extensions to third-party CRMs, ERPs, and OMSs) and test the website.

Can I customize the design and functionality of my Shopify store after the migration?

Sure! Our designers will analyze your customer groups, find UX/UI drawbacks, and enhance the navigation, checkout page, or any other page . Our developers will embody these changes and carry out speed optimization if there are performance issues.

Will there be any downtime or impact on my live store during Shopify store migration?

No, with our seamless Shopify migration services, your store will be available throughout the process, and you won't be losing customers while the migration is performed.
