Magento to Magento Migration

Magento to Magento

Magento released version 2 in 2015, which prompted online merchants to upgrade or migrate to other platforms. Some owners are moving to WooCommerce because of its seamless integration with WordPress. With Adobe’s acquisition, Magento users can now enjoy a wider variety of features.

How does Magento compare to Magento? Magento 2 offers improved performance and scalability, and a responsive, mobile-friendly design. If you’re planning a Magento to Magento Migration, this post offers a detailed overview of how to make the process easier.

Your shopping experience must be seamless to cater to the ever-changing customer purchasing decisions. A Magento to Magento migration offers the differentiated omnichannel commerce experience your store needs. Try the Cart2Cart migration service for a smooth, entirely automatic re-platforming process, and keep growing your business.


How to upgrade your website

Manual migration

A Manual upgrade with the Magento Migration Tool is complex. If you don’t have web development skills, it’s challenging to back up your database and repair corrupted databases. 

Automated migration 

The simplest and quickest way to migrate from Magento to Magento is through automated migration. The Cart2Cart solution is a trustworthy migration tool that safeguards your data and guarantees complete accuracy throughout the migration process.

How to transfer your website 

The primary difference between Magento and Magento is; Magento 2 is faster, with more reliable extensions. Follow these steps to transfer:

Set up your new store

Upgrading from Magento 1 to Magento 2 begins with creating a target store. Go to the admin sidebar, select Stores > Settings > All Stores. Click Create Store and choose the options for your new store. Enter your store’s name and click Save Store.

Backup your data

Before you migrate, create a backup of your store. This secures your data from any destruction or loss that may occur during your transfer. 

Export your store data 

Before performing your migration, remove any outdated data from your database, including recently viewed products, logs, or compared products. 

Upgrade themes

You cannot directly transfer to Magento—especially themes. To provide the best user experience and help your site perform better, change and customize your theme. You can buy and install a theme from the Magento Marketplace. 

Migrate Extensions

Check whether your current extensions are compatible with the new platform. Select an extension on the marketplace and install it. Cart2Cart can help you transfer corresponding extension data using the custom code. 

Migrate customizations and data 

Often, Magento 1 store’s custom code is incompatible with the newer version. The Code Migration Tool can help you migrate Magento to Magento data and customizations with CLI commands. Ensure the custom code successfully integrates with your new store. 

The Data Migration Tool is a hassle-free way to import orders from Magento, products, categories, and store configurations. Once done, test your new store to ensure everything functions optimally.
