Migration of user data

If you are planning to move the e -commerce store from a platform to another platform, SHOPIFY is a very easy -to -use platform. The migration process may be easy, but especially if the store data is large, the migration process may be complicated.

In this article, I will introduce the points to be aware of during the transition of user data and the transition.

User data migration

Data migration step

Step 1: Basic administrator settings

Check the precautions of the store transition in advance and realize the transition as smoothly as possible. The following points to note during the migration are as follows:

  • An asset that does not depend on the protocol
  • URL redirect

After completing the initial setup, make all settings, store addresses, email addresses, and everything up to date.

Step 2: Import shop content and data to SHOPIFY

If you decide to move the store to SHOPIFY from any platform, there are some things that must be migrated, such as product content, blog pages, and customer transactions, etc.

To migrate product data, history data, and customer data, you must migrate in the following order. By doing so, you can access the complete transaction history of the customer. Orders are linked to customers and products.

  • merchandise
  • client
  • Past order

* Note that it is recommended that you temporarily disable order emails.

When moving data from other platforms to SHOPIFY, past orders are triggered as new orders. Therefore, if you do not want to keep receiving the order notification each time you move, disable the order notification. However, don't forget that new orders that can be confirmed on the Shopify management screen will also be invalidated. When the transition is completed, keep in mind that you will effectively switch your order notification!

Step 3: Product arrangement after migration

After importing the product to the SHOPIFY platform, check if the imported product information is correct. After shifting to confirm the product, do the following work.

  • Check out all metafield descriptions, product details, explanations, images, and variants.
  • Get used to moving and product stock to grasp the products in the store. There is also an inventory management app in the SHOPIFY app.
