Shopify Migration Services
Migrate your online store seamlessly and stress-free
What Do We Do?
Change can be scary, but you shouldn’t let that stop you from growing your business. If your store currently lives on Shopify, but you’d like to migrate to a different eCommerce platform like 3dcart, BigCommerce, or Volusion, then look no further. Using Code9 Shopify Migration Services, our development team will migrate your online business pain-free, so you won’t have to worry about struggling with migration yourself.
What Can We Transfer?
Products’ General Information
Includes product names, base prices, product options, descriptions, and SKUs.
Includes all images associated with the product, such as the main product image and product option images (e.g. colors, sizes).
Includes data for product category names, sub-categories, and their corresponding product associations.
Includes first names, last names, addresses, emails, and phone numbers.
How Do We Do It?
Gain Initial Access
In order to begin migrating your store data, our experts require access to your current control panel, FTP or product information in a CSV file or similar format, and your Shopify login.
Migrating Product Data
By using our Shopify Migration Services, there’ll be no need to re-enter product data manually. Using the exported file from your Shopify store, our developers will format and import your product data and subsequent categories into your new store.
Migrating Customer Data
You won’t ever have to worry about losing vital customer data when migrating out of Shopify. Using your original store’s CSV file for customer data, our developers will import that data into your new online store.
Once our developers have moved all of your product data and customer data, they do a final check to make sure that everything from your original Shopify store has transferred properly. They will address any formatting issues that may arise from the migration and compile a final report of what was moved and what the new site’s status is.
Why Migrate from Shopify?
When using Shopify for your online store, you’re basically forced to use their proprietary payment service for payment processing. When opting for their Shopify Payments service, you’ll be charged a 0.5%-2% transaction fee for external payment gateways on top of your payment processor’s fees.
Lack of Basic Built-In Features
Shopify restricts many important features to high-tiered plans, while some aren’t available at all without paying an additional fee regardless of the plan you’re on. You’ll need a sizeable amount of third-party apps to compensate for the missing features and have even a semblance of control over your site.
Minimal Free Themes
Shopify only offers 10 free themes for you to choose from for your store. On top of that, they use a proprietary coding language for their themes, making it so that you’ll either need unique coding knowledge or a separate developer to be able to make any custom edits. All of this makes it extremely difficult to be able to control how you want your site to look.
What do we do?
Since you’ve already been through the difficult task of having to set up your store on one eCommerce platform, you know how important it is to make sure your new platform is the best so you don’t have to make the switch again.
At Code9 Studios, our top recommendation for an eCommerce platform to migrate to is 3dcart. According to Merchant Maverick’s 3dcart review, “the plans are reasonably priced, and there are tons of important features already built-in.” While these are the top reasons why we recommend 3dcart, let’s explain in detail why we believe they’re the best option for your online store’s new home:
Loads of Powerful Features
One of the most standout aspects of 3dcart is its immense amount of features that come right out-of-the-box, no expensive add-ons required. From front-end features like an abandoned cart saver, a built-in blog, and rewards programs to back-end features like unlimited product variants, email marketing, and B2B features, 3dcart blows the competition out of the water.
3dcart has several flexible payment plans that come with plenty of Bandwidth and storage, along with an in-house team of developers, programmers, and web designers. They’ll also never charge you transaction fees, additional fees, or hidden fees. Their cheapest monthly plan starts at $19.99 per month, making them one of the most affordable eCommerce platform options out there for the features they provide.
Reliable and Supportive
With a guaranteed 99.9% uptime and unlimited free technical support, 3dcart has proven time and time again that you can trust them to help as much as they can if something goes wrong with your online store.
Power and Control
3dcart’s control panel is one of the easiest to use out of any eCommerce platform, making it simple for you to manage your store. They also offer complete freedom to customize the layout of your store with custom programming to adapt your store’s system to how your business functions.
Easy to Migrate
It’s easy to transition to 3dcart because they offer full FTP access, built-in SEO tools to help facilitate your move, and import/export tools and API for data migration. All of this makes your migration path easy, regardless of the provider you’re coming from.
