What are the peculiarities of store data migration to Wix?

Basically, the list of entities that can be transferred to Wix in a totally automated manner includes:

  • products,
  • orders,
  • coupons.

Сategories cannot be imported to Wix due to the technical peculiarities of the platform. As for customers - they cannot be transferred as well, but are created from the orders data automatically.

Regarding the clearing - the option is avalable only for products that are visible at your Wix store and coupons. Orders cannot be cleared at all.

Note: In case the products aren't displayed in a transferred order right after the Demo migration, it means the products weren't transferred because only a limited amount of them can be moved within the Demo. Pay attention to the number of entities-orders and subtotal-total.

To conclude, the Cart2Cart Team is working hard to improve Wix migration. So, lots of new entities are expected to be added to the list in the near future.

Why weren't all my product variants imported to Wix?

Due to technical limitations of Wix platform, there are some peculiarities of product variants migration to this eCommerce solution. More specifically:

  • The upper limit of product variants and its options is 300 and 6 correspondingly. Therefore, it’s impossible to import more than 300 variants or 6 options. In case there are more of them - it is necessary to delete some product variants/options so that Wix allows you import the product;
  • If the product on the source store has some options and more than 300 variants, then it is recommended to delete some of the variants, so that Wix allows to import the product;
  • If the product on the source store has some options and no variants, and the number of possible options combinations is more than 300, then the variants will not be generated automatically, but the imported product will have options (do not forget about the limit of 6 options);
  • If there are options on the source, but no variants, and the number of possible options combinations is no more than 300, then the options will be imported, and variants will be generated;
  • if there are 6 or less options on the source store and 300 or less variants, then all the options and variants will be imported to Wix.

Since Wix has no built-in eCommerce functionality, you need to install one of the eCommerce apps e.g. ‘Wix Stores’, ‘Online Store’, ‘eCommerce’, ‘Simple-e-Commerce’, etc., to start selling with this CMS.

However, currently automated migration with Cart2Cart is available from ‘Wix Stores’ app only.
