Do you know that you can make an easy Magento to Magento migration with us?

It's hard for Magento 1 users to see their favorite platform losing support from its owner. But to their relief, version 2 has come with some extraordinary features as a perfect solution. Now, it has become a high priority for users to consider a Magento to Magento migration. However, you can also choose to switch to Shopify or Woocommerce. Regardless of the platform you choose, the migration process needs to be well planned and properly conducted to keep things where they should be. Otherwise, stores will lose important functionalities.

Why Should You Transfer to Magento 2?

The latest Magento compared to Magento 1 has more to give to the users. But the most crucial feature is security. As the prior version has stopped receiving any security update, it has now become a primary target of hackers. It also lacks PCI compliance. Hence, more data are leaking from it. Moreover, the old platform doesn't support the Progressive Web Application (PWA), which is considered the future for e-commerce. Version 2 has no such limitations. Besides, it offers an easy checkout system and an improved admin interface. Simply put, the newer version lets users modernize their business. Users will feel the difference Magento to Magento migration makes in their lives.

How to Migrate from Magento to Magento?

Platform shifting can be complicated if not done step by step cautiously. It may also require some technical skills. In this section, we simplify the whole migration process. The entire process can be divided into the below steps:
  • Set up a new store
  • Create a backup of the store data
  • Migrate Magento to Magento
  • Migrate extensions and themes
  • Switch domain and change DNS
  • How to Set up a New Store?

You have to download the latest version and upload it to the server. While installing, run a readiness check and provide the right information in the forms. You also have to include a database and customize the store.
  • How to Back up Store Data?

To back up the existing data, you have to go to the admin root folder to show usages. From there, list all backup files and run the necessary command line to back up the database, media, and source codes.
  • How Can You Migrate Magento 1 to Magento 2?

Now, this is the part where things turn a bit more complicated. You have to export your store entities like products, integrations, orders, customers, media, and so on and import them to the target store. You can use importer tools or take the help of professionals for this part. Tools will enable you to do it yourself. For example, to migrate products from Magento 1, you have to go to the System from Admin Sidebar, and choose Data Transfer and then Export. From there, you have to extract a CSV file with all the products data. And then import the file to the new store. To transfer customers from Magento to Magento, you can follow the same process.
  • How to Migrate Extensions and Themes

After the store import, it's time to import the extensions and theme. In simple words, you have to check if the extension and theme versions are compatible with that of the new platform. If both versions are compatible, you can import the same themes and extensions. If not, you have to find compatible versions and then import them.
  • How to Switch Domain and DNS?

Being the last, this step is not simple at all. You have to plan for transferring your domain and DNS along with the migration of SEO URLs. Using an importer tool can make this process easier. But you can still do it by accessing the DNS and pointing the domain to the target IP. The entire process of Magento to Magento migration can be done safely and effortlessly with tools like Cart2Cart. No matter whether it's only to execute product migrating or to import orders from Magento, Cart2Cart can perform everything efficiently.
