Why Migrate from Magento to Shopify?
With the advent of Magento 2 many small and medium-sized businesses are looking for an affordable long-term solution for their business. Upgrading to Magento 2 from Magento 1 may not be feasible or affordable for your company. Or you may have already tried out Magento 2 and found it to not be the right solution for your company. Either way, our team can help you migrate your current Magento based website from Magento to Shopify or Shopify Plus!
Migrating your Magento site to Shopify can allow you to save on hosting, development, and other technology costs. Shopify can be a great solution for your business, however there are some important caveats to consider…
Let’s take a look at what Shopify does and doesn’t do as well as Magento.
- Fast learning curve for admin users
- 100% PCI Compliant
- Security is managed by Shopify
- Lower development costs
- Large app store
- Ability to customize theme with drag and drop editor
- Built in blog capability
- No updates or patches to install!
- No customizing checkout without Shopify Plus
- Customizing admin or backend functionality is done outside Shopify in custom applications
- Lots of low quality apps which require vetting
- Limitations for SEO & website speed without using a Headless implementation
- Limitations for translations / internationalization
- Limitations for wholesale / second websites
The cost of moving to Shopify is offset for many of our clients by the total cost of ownership on the platform. Many companies that have worked with us for years have reduced their yearly costs by as much as half with the switch to Shopify.
This is especially true if your eCommerce site doesn’t require significant customizations beyond the core Shopify features. We often recommend Shopify for companies who are doing less than 1 million in total sales online, who don’t have retail locations or don’t have customizable products.
