Perfect execution. We converted from WooCommerce to Shopify with no problems. All products info and photo were transferred. It only took three days from start to finish but we were a fairly small project.

This Shopify Migration App worked great to migrate our store from Volusion to Shopify! It transferred over all product descriptions, photos, categories, etc. seamlessly. It’s very easy to use, and the instructions are very easy to follow. Considering the amount of information that we needed transferred, it did not take as long as we had expected.



We did an initial transfer to test out how things would look and how everything would function. It worked great! We purchased insurance with our migration so that we could re-migrate once our shop was closer to being ready to push live, and customer service has been AMAZING in our requests necessary with our remigration. They are very responsive, very informative, and extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend this service if you are looking to transfer your eCommerce site. Everything has been great! Thank you!

I contacted Cart2Cart’s help desk (direct chat) and had my questions answered very quickly and very politely. I feel much more confident now with my decision to use Cart2Cart to do the data migration from my existing website to Shopify. I was recommended to Cart2Cart for Shopify Migration by a trusted friend and I will definitely recommend them also to anyone looking to migrate. Moving website providers has been a source of stress for me and at least this is one less thing to worry about.

How to Migrate WooCommerce to Shopify?

Shopify is a top e-commerce platform used by millions of online stores in 175 countries. According to Builtwith.com, Shopify currently powers around 4.2 million online stores.


Why is Shopify so popular?

Shopify is a hosted solution, so it runs on its own servers; Shopify store owners don’t have to pay for web hosting or install any software to use it. Shopify also takes care of all technical and security issues, so many store owners are tempted to migrate their stores to the platform.

The platform offers everything you need to build an online store, including templates, payment gateways, email marketing tools, and shipping and billing solutions.

WooCommerce to Shopify migration is something many store owners consider, and it's not difficult to achieve.

How to Handle WooCommerce to Shopify Migration?

There are three ways for WooCommerce to Shopify migration.

  1. Get the help of experts. You can make use of your own developers or employ external developers to handle the WooCommerce to Shopify migration for you. In this case, these experts will manage things like inventory, product information, data security, and preserving SEO status.

  2. Incorporate Shopify on your WordPress website. If you want to stay with WordPress but want to use Shopify to sell products, you can embed a Shopify buy button on your WordPress site. This step will allow you to sell from your website, and ensure a smooth and secure shopping experience for your visitors. This is a useful solution for website owners who just want to sell a few products.

  3. Make use of an automated migration cart. With the Cart2Cart migration solution, you can simply set up the WooCommerce to Shopify migration and choose the entities to migrate, and the automated migration tool will do the rest.

Benefits of  Migration from WooCommerce to Shopify

Here is why WooCommerce to Shopify migration is beneficial.

Security

With WooCommerce not being a hosted solution, website owners are responsible for their own site security. In contrast, Shopify is SSL Certificate and PCI-DSS Compliant by default. WooCommerce users must acquire all the relevant certificates themselves.

Third-party payments

You don't have to commit to accepting third-party payments. Shopify offers the Shopify Payments feature, which allows website visitors to paying in their local currency and stores this information for future purchases.

You don’t have to integrate the payments feature with a third-party payment provider like Stripe or PayPal.

The Shopify Payments feature lets you accept credit card payments, including all major solutions like Mastercard, American Express, and Visa, without the need for a third-party provider.

Benefit from Shopify analytics

Shopify offers excellent analytics. With Shopify analytics and reports, you can review your store's recent activity, get insights into your visitors, and analyze your online store speed, and your transactions.

Big range of functionalities that don't slow down your store

With a WooCommerce website, users need to install many plugins to enable additional features, which can slow down a store. As an open-source platform, WooCommerce relies heavily on plugins. There are over 50,000 plugins to choose from, which is hopelessly confusing for WooCommerce users.

Shopify has ample apps (3,200), all optimized not to slow down store speed.

Work with an easier platform

WooCommerce is not beginner-friendly. You need some coding knowledge to build a WooCommerce store. In contrast, Shopify has been built with the express aim of making it easy for anyone to build a website.

Benefit from outstanding sales features

If you are serious about selling, Shopify is the better option than WooCommerce. Shopify has sales features like built-in abandoned cart recovery, discount codes, unlimited products, plus more than 100 payment options.

When Do You Need to Migrate from WooCommerce to Shopify?

If you’re struggling with the complexity of WooCommerce or choosing between the thousands of extensions, you have reason to consider WooCommerce to Shopify migration. Let's look at the reasons for WooCommerce to Shopify migration in more detail.

Reliable and secure website

Shopify offers top-of-the-range security, including 256-bit SSL certificates, Level-1 PCI compliance, and 99.98% uptime. In other words, your site is secure, and it is reliable too. So, your store will never be down, costing you in revenue.

Avoid the frustration of constant updates

One of the main reasons why website owners move away from WooCommerce is the constant updates. Plugins offered by WooCommerce are constantly being updated and then no longer work with other plugins anymore, or plugins break and disrupt store performance. Store owners who are serious about making money can't afford these disruptions, and many decide to move their WooCommerce stores to alternative platforms.

The Shopify app store is always up to date and never causes stores to stop functioning properly.

Grow your online business

It's time to move your store to Shopify if your business is starting to grow. If selling just from your website is starting to limit your growth potential, you need to take advantage of Shopify’s built-in multichannel integration that allows you to reach new customers on platforms like Amazon, Facebook, eBay, and Pinterest.

You need to boost your sales

If our WooCommerce store sales have stagnated, it's time to migrate to another e-commerce platform. You can't go wrong with choosing Shopify. The platform has all the tools you need to reach your sales targets.

Shopify makes it easy to keep in touch with customers. With Shopify, you can

  • Send targeted email campaigns

  • Send abandoned checkout emails

  • Create automated marketing campaigns that can show your products on Google and Facebook to prospective customers

  • Send promotions or announcements via SMS, and much more

To top it all, you will have access to tons of insights on traffic, conversion rates, and more via Shopify Analytics.

Conclusion

If you feel frustrated by too many WooCommerce extensions and their frequent updates, and you want to be sure that your store is secure and fast, WooCommerce to Shopify migration might be the answer you are looking for.

WooCommerce to Shopify migration will also ensure a surge in your sales.

If you need help migrating WooCommerce to Shopify, one of the best solutions is the cart migration tool Cart2Cart. It is a simple and trustworthy cart migration tool that transfers all website data securely and accurately.
