Be Prepared for
E-Commerce Store Migration
Migrating between e-commerce platforms takes careful planning.
Making sure that your products, customers, order history, and informational content migrate to the new platform without error is just a small part of the migration process.
Have you considered the impact a migration will have on your search engine optimization (SEO) efforts?
What is Involved in a Store Migration?
Making a proper plan and migration checklist will help prevent costly mistakes, timeline delays, and critical errors.
There is a large amount of work that needs to be done prepping both your data for migration and the new store for launch.
You must ensure data integrity when moving your data to the new platform. You'll also need to hook up your 3rd party integrations.
Knowing what to test and check before launching is essential to prevent poor user experience and downtime for your store.
Failing to maintain your SEO elements can have a serious impact on your traffic and revenue. It's crucial to get this step right.
Your new site looks good, but is it performing? Immediately auditing the site after launch is critical to catching errors early.
