When you choose to hire a BigCommerce Migration services company, it is guaranteed that your data remains a 100% secured while moving from Shopify to BigCommerce. Encrypting your data both at rest and in transit is one of the most important actions you can take to ensure data security during cloud migration which our experts take a lot of measures for.

However, in cases of IDs and Currencies it is not possible, and here is why;

Unfortunately, it is not feasible to migrate currencies to BigCommerce. Regardless of the currency settings in Source Cart, the prices for all goods and order totals will be set in the default currency defined in BigCommerce.As an illustration, the price of a product that costs £95 in a BigCommerce store where the default currency is USD will be $95 following the transfer.

The procedure is constrained since our migration tool imports data to BigCommerce via an API. As a result, order IDs cannot be transferred to BigCommerce.

No, there won’t be any disruptions throughout the migration. Our Shopify to BigCommerce migration professional team will ensure that your store remains accessible throughout the transfer process. Visitors will always find your business open and working normally. Our experts can complete the full migration since there is a minimum volume of traffic to your store.
