Our Magento Migration Process

Magento migration is all about process, attention to detail, and incremental changes.

We’ve successfully helped Magento store owners take complex stores and upgrade their ecommerce platform with these steps:

#1: Plan and Prepare

  • Backup your current site, including files, database, and other store data.
  • Clone your existing store to ensure that minimal downtime is experienced during the migration process.
  • Assess your current store complexity, tech stack, and customer experience.
  • Work with you to establish a plan for smooth migration.

#2: Stage

  • Using your cloned store, we’ll check the compatibility of your current code, themes, and modules with the latest version of Magento 2.
  • Complete an audit of your data for outdated or irrelevant information.
  • Begin data migration from your cloned database to stress test the new build.
  • Begin installation of Magento 2 on your hosting server.

#3: Migrate

Once everything is ready, all the data will be carefully migrated in the following sequence:

  • Theme Migration
  • Extension Migration
  • Customizations Migration
  • Data Migration

#4: Maintain

Upon successful migration and deployment of your new store, we offer post migration support services to keep your online store up to date.

  • Installation of security patches.
  • Upkeep of store data, media files, and content.
  • Manage updates to latest version of Magento 2 upon future releases.
  • Ongoing assessment of store performance.

Why Switch to Magento 2?

Magento 1 End of Life

Support for Magento 1 ended in June of 2020, but many businesses haven’t made the switch. As the platform continues to age, these sites are increasingly vulnerable, difficult to manage, and lacking advanced features. 

Migrating to Magento 2 with a team that can bring forward your customizations and meet your needs is key to success.

Performance and Longevity

Magento 2 migration will allow you to build a mobile friendly website with a smooth user experience, mobile friendly design, and improved website performance in the long-term.

Better tools at your disposal leads to better sales and sustained growth.

PCI & GDPR Compliance

If you accept payments or sell anything online, you know how serious maintaining PCI compliance is. 

Older platforms are vulnerable to security attacks that compromise sensitive data and leave you vulnerable. Magento 2 migration mitigates such risks and improves security.

Upgraded Features and Tech Stack

Magento 2 offers a number of features that its predecessor cannot, including simpler checkouts, an easy to use admin panel, an upgraded extension library, and better responsive design. 

Whether you’re aiming to increase your SEO or enhance inventory management, upgrading your Magento commerce is a good idea.

Magento Migration FAQs

Here are the most commonly asked questions we hear from Magento store owners considering our Magento 2 migration service.

In most cases, a Magento 2 migration is the process of moving an ecommerce store from Magento 1 to Magento 2. This is achieved with a carefully laid out process that migrates data, themes, custom code, and other critical elements over a given period. Ecommerce developers often use this time to improve numerous aspects of a business’s online store.

Magento 1 end of life is the biggest reason to migrate from Magento 1 to Magento 2. The older version is no longer maintained or updated, which means that security issues can arise, technical support will dwindle over time, and newer features will be unavailable – without migration.

Stores that remain on Magento 1 risk security attacks, degradation, lower SEO rankings, decreased performance, and higher costs to maintain their e commerce platform. Magento stores are encouraged to develop a migration plan and start their transition as soon as possible – especially since ongoing support ended in June of 2020.

If properly executed, you shouldn’t experience a dip in rankings when migrating to Magento 2. That said, Magento 2 migration and SEO are separate disciplines and should work in tandem. Migrating to Magento 2 is not guaranteed to improve rankings, but it does improve a website’s crawlability, content management, technical optimization, and other SEO-related aspects.

It remains securely on your server. A backup is created before any and all major deployments for the sake of redundancy, and the migration steps we take ensure no data loss or errors during the initial migration or after successful deployment of your updated store.

When executed by a team of Magento certified developers, you should expect to see improvements in site performance. For best results, benchmark current performance KPIs so you’re able to directly compare after the migration process is complete.

While it’s possible to find a market data migration tool and attempt this yourself, we do not recommend it. You’ll need to spend a lot of time researching and learning the data migration tool, understand the Magento 2 migration process thoroughly, and then spend valuable time completing a large checklist of tasks. In our experience, most Magento 2 migration failures occur from failed DIYs.
