How To Migrate From Magento To WooCommerce

How to migrate from Magento to WooCommerce

Magento 1 end of life: June 2020

Last September, Magento announced the decision to bring an end to support for Magento 1 as of June 2020 with staggered support being provided until then.

For website owners operating on Magento 1, now is the ideal time to consider re-platforming to find a solution that suits your business’ needs.

Whilst Magento 2 may be the best option for large enterprise stores, it may be more cost effective to migrate your data from Magento to a new WooCommerce site, powered by WordPress and reduce your overheads and operating costs.

    Why choose WooCommerce?

    There’s a reason WordPress powers so much of the internet. Beautiful designs, powerful features, and the freedom to build anything you want, it’s both free and priceless at the same time.

    Our experienced WordPress developers can help you harness those powers. We engineer from the ground up with security, speed, SEO and scalability in mind, using a core set of proven and reliable extensions and partners, quality-checked to give you peace of mind.

    The end result? Beautifully responsive, on-brand websites that excel on every platform, browser and device and give you the freedom to easily update and upload content as you go.

    WooCommerce vs Magento

    Whilst Magento can take years of training to master, WordPress is user friendly, quick to learn and easy to update thanks to their commitment to never breaking backwards compatibility.

    As WooCommerce is so closely integrated into WordPress it shares the same user-friendly interface, giving you flexibility to manage your store without over-reliance on a developer.

    Some Magento stores can require a large amount of server space to operate a website with a large inventory and visitors, increasing your overheads.

    With WooCommerce, your server requirements won’t exceed that of a standard WordPress website, giving you great performance with more budget to spend elsewhere.

    Hundreds of compatible extensions

    Re-platforming your website can be enough hard work and hassle at the best of times but can be made even more difficult if you have to replace your existing integrations.

    Luckily, as WooCommerce supports many of the same integrations as Magento 1 webstores, you can carry on using the same plugins and extensions as before, including:

    Payments – Seamless and secure transactional gateways from the likes of SagePay, PayPal, Stripe, Klarna and more…

    Marketing – send effective comms with MailChimp and dotdigital, drive conversions through Google Ads and integrate your social media channels

    Fulfillment – create custom shipping matrixes and offer quick dispatch with Royal Mail, FedEx, ShipStation and much more…
