Magento to Shopify migration workflow: how does it work?

During the workshop, we’ll get to know your business, your current infrastructure, and systems. Then, we’ll create recommendations, together with a roadmap and quotation.

Magento vs Shopify – why choose the Shopify solution?
Did you know that Shopify supports over 3.75 million live stores worldwide? In contrast, there are approximately 160,000 live stores operating on the Magento platform. These statistics clearly demonstrate why many business owners choose to migrate their e-commerce processes to Shopify Plus. However, every business has unique requirements, so we’ll find the perfect solution for you during our discovery workshop at the beginning of our collaboration. In the meantime, let’s explore some of the advantages of using Shopify:
Ease of Use:
Shopify is specifically designed to simplify the process of building and managing online stores, making it more user-friendly than any other platform. With minimal effort and time, you can easily maintain your Shopify store, while Magento requires some technical knowledge. This simplicity directly impacts the total cost of platform ownership. By choosing a SaaS solution like Shopify, your store and its features will automatically grow alongside your business.
Shopify provides excellent security compared to other platforms. Their team handles all necessary patches, ensuring that your platform remains fully compliant and equipped with SSL encryption to protect customers’ private data.
Shopify offers a wide range of e-commerce management features, allowing you to efficiently handle all aspects of your business operations. With over 70 themes to choose from, including mobile-friendly options, you can create an appealing storefront. At WeCanFly, we can also create a fully customized storefront to ensure your design is 100% unique. Shopify’s shopping cart includes a free SSL certificate and user-friendly payment gateway installation. Managing your store and inventory is simple, and you have access to powerful analytics.
Shopify offers numerous plugins for accounting, shipping, and customer service to enhance your e-commerce platform. There are approximately 1,500 free add-ons available to Shopify users.
Speed and Performance:
In the realm of e-commerce websites, speed and performance are crucial factors. Shopify stores typically have faster loading times compared to Magento, and the platform supports headless e-commerce.
Shopify provides round-the-clock support to assist clients with any technical issues they may encounter. Additionally, there is a large community available to offer guidance. In contrast, Magento’s dedicated 24/7 support is limited to Magento Commerce and Commerce Cloud users.
