How to Migrate a Prestashop Online Store to Shopify

We are aware that the market offers many and diverse platforms to host online stores and you have to know them all very well to know what their strengths and weaknesses are. Sometimes a user realizes that their platform does not offer everything they want and feels the need to look for alternatives. That is why today at Webmefy we want to tell you the process of changing your online store from a provider like Prestashop to another like Shopify. This is something that may seem a little dizzying at first, but we are sure that, after reading these lines, you will see that it is a much simpler process than it seems.

At Webmefy we are prepared to help you throughout this process. We opt for Shopify because it is a platform that allows you to delegate all technical tasks so that you only have to worry about selling . They take care of hosting and technical support, which in principle is the most laborious. The online store is configurable at the user level and you can check the results of your changes instantly, since the interface is very pleasant.

If your online store already has a certain history, it is best to have a professional take care of the entire process. At Webmefy we make sure that this large amount of data hosted in multiple sets can reach the new platform in the best possible way, so as not to lose part of the path traveled until the moment of migration.

How will this migration affect the SEO of my online store? Will I lose my catalog?

At this point it is normal for many users to be assailed by doubts. Webmefy's job is to ensure that your entire catalog reaches the new platform intact, so that you only have to start selling as you had been doing previously.

Likewise, we are going to ensure that all the SEO of your online store is not affected by this entire process . This is essential for your products to continue appearing on the first page of Google, which causes your sales to increase considerably. We also take into account all URL redirects during the migration, since there may be many very well-positioned links that previously directed to our store and now have to do so to the new one. This, without a doubt, is one of the most common fears of sellers who think about migrating their online store, which is why at Webmefy we make sure that everything continues to work perfectly.

Import Store app

The Shopify Import Store app allows you to import your product, customer, and order data into a Shopify store. To do this you must have previously exported all the data from your online store to a file. Shopify offers a module that you can install on your Prestashop store to export all this data and then install it in Shopify.

Transporter app

This is a tool that we love and with which we work to carry out the entire migration process. This application is capable of importing comma-separated value (CSV) files and exporting them as Shopify files that the new platform can now work with. It is primarily used for customer data, but is only available to merchants working with Shopify Plus.

However, as we told you at the beginning of this text, at Webmefy we can help you make this entire process as simple as possible for you. You can write us an email at info@webmefy.com and we will be happy to assist you. If you are not yet a Shopify user, we also invite you to try it for free.
