WooCommerce Migration

Migrate your products, customizations, customers and more to WooCommerce without losing any data.


Using an App or a Plugin for WooCommerce migration is known to be a bad decision, and there are multiple reasons for concluding this, such as:​


If a person has customized their web store according to the needs of their business, those customizations are specific to a certain platform. When migrating the store to WooCommerce using an App or Plugin, those customizations do not migrate, and you are left with no option but to customize again.


When working on a certain platform, you get used to its outlook, features and extensions, but when migrating to another platform, such as WooCommerce, you need to understand that the extensions and features that the other platform was offering do not exist anymore.


As we discussed customizations, even themes are part of it. For example, if you have chosen a certain theme on a platform, and customized it according to your business needs, when migrating to WooCommerce, you need to choose another theme, because themes are platform-specific most of the time.


Apps and Plugins are not the right way to migrate because there is a high risk of loss of data, due to no quality assurance being implemented in this way.


There is also high level risk of security because of different aspects.

  • One security threat that exists is the fact that some Apps download along a hidden plugin which cannot be seen around, and may cause problems for the user.
  • Another security threat is that passwords are not migrated or transmitted, so they need to be typed out again, which leads to the hidden plugin catching the password and leaking it to its source.
  • This means that anyone can access your accounts from this point forward, making the system totally open and highly vulnerable.

What Additional Services Do We Offer?


Clear Data On Target Store Before Migration

We help you clear your data on the Target Store that is not useful anymore, or not needed for migration purposes, so that there is no loss of data at all, and unimportant data is deleted. This includes: images, orders, customers, etc.


Preserve Order IDs on Target Store

After the migration as well, order IDs can be preserved, which makes it easier for the Target Store to save the IDs and use them for repeat customers, without asking for or generating new ones.


Create 301 Redirects on Target Store

Creating redirecting options for products and categories on Target Store that can lead customers back to the Source Store products and categories using the same links, makes it easier for customers to continue their order where left.


Create Product Variants Based on Combinations of Options

Different products variants can be made as well, depending on what combinations of options are available within the store products ad categories. Migration can also make these variants and combinations more configurable later on.


Strip HTML from Category, Product Names

HTML tags can be separated by stripping them off from the product names, categories or descriptions of the products, in order to ensure that they fit perfectly into the Target Store and display properly.


Migrate Images from Products, Categories and Blogs

In order to attract customers towards your products and categories, it is important to display images within the descriptions and posts, making it important to migrate images into the Target Store as well, from the Source Store.


Change Products Quantity on Target Store

To display any product out of stock means a loss of customers who would want to buy that, so we provide you the option to change the quantity of the products at the front end so that they do not display out of stock for the customers and the business keeps running smoothly.


Migrate Additional Images

This is another important offer we provide, that the migration makes it possible for you to bring along all the additional, full - size images into the Target Store, and not just the thumbnail, so that the customers can have a better view at the product being offered.


Migrate Short and Full Descriptions

This feature helps you to migrate all kinds of descriptions into the same box or field, be it a long description or short, making it easier for customers to read the complete descritptions in one place.


Migrate Product SKUs

To change SKUs can get very hectic, because the vendor already has an SKU database and it is easier to carry the same SKU forward, which is one feature we offer our users, to transfer all product SKUs from the Source Store to the Target Store without any hindrance.

We can migrate your store to WooCommerce without losing a sweat!

WooCommerce is one of the most widely used eCommerce platforms across the globe, with one third of the total web stores using this platform. The reasons to perform a Magento to WooCommerce migration are:

  • Ease of Use – WooCommerce is easier to use than Magento.
  • Affordability – WooCommerce is a completely free platform, whereas Magento has pricing plans and charges for using it.
  • Skill Requirement – WooCommerce is easier to use, thus, you do not need any prior skills, but it could be great if you have worked with WordPress before. For Magento, some prior knowledge and skills are required, or you will have to hire third party experts for the work.

Yes, it is possible to migrate blogs from any platform to WooCommerce, but it requires expert help and needs to be done professionally. Thus, for this purpose, the user needs to hire a team of experts that can migrate the blogs as they are into the WooCommerce platform, and migration through apps and plugins do not have this option at all.

Yes, even reviews, like blogs, can be migrated to the WooCommerce platform, as it is, but they also need professional skills and knowledge to attain success of migration. The work needs to be conducted through certified professionals, because an app or plugin cannot perform the proper migration that is required in this case.

Yes, the WooCommerce platform allows you to access, manage and migrate multiple stores into the system. It is a professional task, and can only be handled by certified experts of the WooCommerce platform, but it is very much possible.

Yes, multilingual stores can be migrated and are supported by the WooCommerce platform, though, the platform uses a certain plugin for this purpose (WPML plugin). The only issue with this plugin is that it needs to be purchased and installed into your platform before the start of the migration purpose, to ensure all data has been transferred, which can add another cost, but is a successful feature.

Yes, Magento to WooCommerce migration is a great decision, because almost one third of the world is already using WooCommerce, and there are a lot of advantages of using WooCommerce over Shopify, such as:

  • Affordability – WooCommerce is a free platform and does not charge to launch a web store through it, whereas Shopify has monthly pricing plans that one needs to subscribe to in order to gain the rights of use of the platform.
  • Payment Gateway Fees – Both platforms offer multiple payment gateways to pay through, but in some Shopify plans, the user may have to pay a transaction fees.
  • Ease of Use – Shopify is a fully hosted site, thus, it may take more time and effort to setup, whereas WooCommerce can easily be added as a plugin extension to any WordPress account and it will start working instantaneously.
  • Migration – WooCommerce migration is also easier as compared to migration into the Shopify platform, since less effort and skill is required, especially for people familiar to WordPress.

On a side note, even OpenCart to WooCommerce migration and Prestashop to WooCommerce migration have proved to be successful in the past, and people around the globe mostly prefer using the WooCommerce platform over many others.

If you want to open an online store quickly, Shopify combines extensive ecommerce tools with a simple setup procedure, but this comes at a cost, you don’t own the platform and must pay a commission on every sale.
The WooCommerce plugin, on the other hand, can turn any WordPress site into a robust ecommerce platform. WooCommerce claims to provide you ultimate control over your ecommerce store due to its vast community of plugins, extensions, and themes.

While WooCommerce is user-friendly and offers low-cost payments for your typical eCommerce needs, it also has excellent community support and you can very quickly get answers to all of your queries. Magento is excellent for big businesses, but it comes at a greater price. WooCommerce, on the other hand, is better for small businesses.
