How Complicated is it to Migrate to Shopify

Depending on which platform you are currently on maybe WIX, WooCommerce, Open Cart etc. there is usually a method to extract all your data and product information in a file. We would work with you in advance to understand what features you would want and any integrations needed and we would open a development store account. Start to populate or customise your templates and set up integrations with any features, apps or line of business tools you need. We will then help you to populate your content back into the site. This is the opportunity to restructure your content, refresh images, update copy to be SEO optimised and we will then help get you familiar with the CMS, how to add products etc before migrating the site to your account and updating any DNS to get your site live. Some of your time will be required in this process and we will hand hold you and advise you through the whole journey.
