Shopify to Magento Q&A
What situation or reason would I want to opt to have the additional service to use the Shopify to Magento Connector?
If you would like a purchase-and-go experience where you will not have the time to do the installation, monitor its progress, get the errors/issues escalated and resolved, and just want it to be done when you get back to your desk – this is the service for you.
All data issues will be listed out and be Emailed to you t which point you can get assistance with support on any of these errors/issues.
This connector will retrieve all possible data to the transferred.
The connector will start gathering your data, and start transferring it to the new store.
You will need the base web address of Shopify (xxxxxxx.myshopify.com), your credentials for the store and the location of the Magento store (http://yourmagentostore.com) with its credentials.
In My Account, you will see a link for you to click on and install the connector from there.
The following are sent over – OrderID, Product Descriptions, Product price, Quantity of the Product ordered, Customer Details/Shipping Address, Order Comments, Order date, Order totals and Order Status.
The following are sent over – SKU code, Product Name, Description, Stock Quantity, Stock Status, Model, Weight, Base Product Image, Additional Images, Base Price, Assignment of Product Categories Attributes (Color, Size, Texture, etc), Variants form Simple Products as part of Configurable products in Magento for easy management.
The following are sent over – CustomerID (unique ID), Username, First Name, Last Name, Email, DOB, Address fields.
This connector is made for store migration between Shopify and Magento in bringing over 3 key areas of the store: Customer (Email, Name, Addresses, Phone details) Products (Descriptions, images, variants) and Orders (re-creates historical orders in Magento so you can see them in My Account)
This tool allows you to configure both sides of the stores to then get permissions to pass the store contents from one side to the other with security. It will move Customers, Products, and Orders to Magento from Shopify in one simple step after the installation.
Shopify does not have versions to speak of, since it is a cloud based system. For Magento, this Connector will work only for Magento 2.1 and beyond.
