magento to shopify migration

There's a noticeable shift as businesses increasingly migrate from Magento to Shopify, driven by the desire for a more streamlined, user-friendly, and scalable online retail experience. Shopify's intuitive interface and scalability caters to businesses of all sizes, making it the go-to choice for merchants aiming to enhance their online presence.


Migrating from Magento to Shopify is a strategic decision for many businesses seeking to enhance their eCommerce operations. Here are the key reasons why this transition is beneficial:

User-Friendly Interface:

Shopify's intuitive and user-friendly interface simplifies online store management, enabling non-technical users to effortlessly create, manage, and update their eCommerce sites.

Lower Maintenance and Operating Costs:

Shopify's hosted solution significantly reduces the maintenance and operating costs of running an online store. Unlike Magento, which often requires additional hosting, security, and maintenance services, Shopify includes these in its monthly subscription, offering a more cost-effective solution.

Enhanced Scalability:

Shopify's structure caters to businesses of all sizes, efficiently managing increases in product ranges, higher traffic, and market expansion without impacting site performance or customer experience – Shopify allows for higher tiers / plans to be seamlessly expanded, using a common tech stack, but releasing more functions and capacity with their larger plans

Robust Security:

Shopify ensures the safety of customer data and transactions with its robust security measures, including SSL certification and PCI compliance, simplifying online security management for businesses.


Migration From Magento to Shopify

  • Volume of sales does not warrant the support required for Magento
  • The Magento instance is 3+ years old and the client is considering a new platform
  • The Magento site was poorly build (not by Absolute!) and is difficult to maintain
  • A new ERP or third-party integration that is already supported by Shopify is required
  • The customer journey is relatively simple, and a theme approach can be used
  • The client’s marketing team wants more control over managing the site and do not have the necessary Magento expertise in-house.
