Migrating from Magento to Shopify or Shopify Plus
If you are considering replatforming from Magento to Shopify or Shopify Plus, Forix is your go-to-partner with extensive experience in both platforms.
Perhaps you have heard that Shopify is a less expensive or more simplified alternative to the customizable Magento platform. Maybe you don’t need customizations or special product rules, and you can run on something a bit more straightforward. If an enterprise software might be overkill for what you actually need, Shopify is certainly an avenue for you.
The best place to begin is with a discussion to understand what your core needs are, and what is transferable from Magento to Shopify. When you talk to a Forix representative, they will begin by talking through some of your major considerations.
- What do I give up when moving from Magento to Shopify?
- What is the cost difference between the two platforms?
- What kind of ongoing maintenance and support costs should I expect?
- How should I budget my migration?
It is important to have a thorough understanding of the differences between the two platforms before taking on this endeavor. Otherwise you won’t know what you are potentially sacrificing that might be a hard and fast business rule you can’t deviate from. Success on a migration is essential, so having a great roadmap up front makes all the difference
