Popular Questions About Magento Shopify Migration

Migrating using apps can lead to several things going wrong. First of all, app migrations do not migrate any customizations, be it of theme or functionality, these automated migration apps can’t take care of them. Secondly, extensions can’t be migrated just as easily either. These migrations also increase any chances of losses occurring in data during the migration process and also adverse effects on SEO rankings.

You can rest assured that your data will be safe and secure throughout the migration and this is because we are using 128 bit SSL encryption to protect your data while migrating and also the HTTPS protocol.

Shopify is also more secure in the sense that everything is managed for you. It is also one of the only platforms where there is little to no chance of your customers’ data getting stolen or hacked. Even if it does, it is the platform’s responsibility.
