A Guide to Shopify Migration Service
If you’ve decided to migrate your online store to Shopify, this article can help you do that.
Maybe you realize that Shopify is the perfect platform for your e-commerce needs. Maybe your current online store base does not support mobile shoppers. Whatever your reason is, having a Shopify migration service can be the best thing you can do today.
It may look like it’s a Herculean task, but it’s actually simple. Let us show you how we do our Shopify migration service so you can get an idea for your transitioning:
#1 Complete the initial setup with Shopify
First thing’s first: You need to do the basics. This means reviewing the migration considerations and completing the initial setup.
You would need to organize your store, add all the details into your site, personalize it, and then publish it to the internet where everyone can see.
#2 Import all data to Shopify
Once you’re done with the basics, it is time to move forward with data import/export. For this service, you can choose a Shopify migration service provider, third-party apps, or manually transferring through CSV files. The best way to minimize the amount you need to do (so you can focus on other important tasks for your business) is to let us handle the import.
We have the right tools and experience to get you started. Our migration services support is thorough; we don’t miss out on any information that may be an asset to your brand/business. Everything will be imported and exported from your current network to Shopify.
Bonus Tip: How to ensure that everything has been imported correctly?
Try doing the following:
- Adding and updating product details
- Creating a collection
- Familiarizing yourself with your inventory
If something is missing, you need to check your service provider or, if you’re doing it manually, review your files.
#3 Improve your website
When these tedious tasks are all behind you, you can proceed with beautifying your online store. Make it look as stunning, simple, and professionally-looking. Shopify has many customizable themes you can start with. Just make sure to tweak and add your creativity into the mix to keep your site more unique and personal.
#4 Create a domain
You have two options for this: You can either buy a whole new one from Shopify or transfer your existing domain to your new Shopify account.
#5 Set up your shipping
If your business needs logistics, you need to consider your shipping services. Double-check if the rates are accurate and updated and if the methods are safe and secure. This helps improve you and your shopper’s delivery experience from purchasing a product from your store.
#6 Set up your payment provider
You definitely shouldn’t skip on this. You need to set up a payment provider to improve your profit flow and your shopper’s payment convenience.
Try to identify your preferred payment methods. If you can accommodate transactions via debit or credit cards, bank transfers, online payment options (like PayPal, Payoneer, and etc.), and bitcoin, make sure these are well-systematized on your site. Additionally, you may want to decide how you want to verify these payments too.
Good luck migrating!
