Migrating between Magento 1 and Magento 2

Migrating between Magento 1 and Magento 2

Extra Digital's process for migration to Magento 2 is as follows:

  • A full store audit noting all extra modules and integrations
  • The design (or theme) is always re-coded to match your existing design. There is a very large difference in the way designs are coded with Magento 2 and it is quickest to recode and use 
  • Alternatively, at this stage, we can implement a new design.
  • Product data is migrated to the new format. Usually straightforward although some type of products need custom scripts for this
  • Customer data is migrated. Any customer groups as well.
  • Order data is then migrated to match the products and customers
  • Any custom integrations are tested with Magento 2

The Magento 2 website will be developed on a different server as the server requirements are different. This makes the changeover process simpler as the new website can be set up ready and fully tested on the new server before being made visible to all.

When to migrate to Magento 2?

Now, in 2018, it is time to start considering this move if you are still using Magento 1.

Migration to Magento 2

What about Magento 2.1 and Magento 2.2. Fear not! The upgrade from Magento 2.1 to 2.2 is a relatively minor upgrade that is part of maintaining an e-commerce store. It is not the major change from Magento 1 to Magento 2.

Magento Expertise

ExtraDigital designed and built their first Magento website for a client back in 2005. At this time there were no plugins available and all customisation was done in-house. Throughout the next 13 years we have built and maintained a range of different Magento websites, specialising in those requiring custom integrations or less common requirements:

  • Warehouse order fulfilment integration (with Apollo)
  • Product license key generated by the country
  • Product licensing integration (Adobe)
  • Product listing by track (for music)
  • Products grouped by tops and bottoms (Bikinis)
  • Stock management integration (Merlin)

Magento Experience

We have built Magento stores of many shapes and sizes across all industries - we have seen it all. Our eCommerce developers have been developing on the Magento platform for many years. 

Rapid Build 

The planning and delivery of a Magento store can be a lengthy process if not planned correctly from the start. Using our Agile project management techniques we can get you from design to completed build in 4 months or less. 

Search Engine Optimised 

There is not point in having a great looking store if no one can find it! Like all our websites, we build our Magento stores to be search engine friendly. 

High Speed Magento Hosting

A slow store with poor loading speed is a recipe for disaster for an eCommerce store. Ask about our specialised Magento eCommerce hosting that will run your store at light speed.

Ongoing Magento Support

If there’s a problem, we provide invaluable magento support to deal with quickly and efficiently. We have found that an eCommerce store needs to be constantly maintained and managed to deal with any issues effectively to prevent any loss of earnings. Our account managers are just a quick phone call away. 

We also specialise in multilingual websites - so Magento stores in Arabic, German, French, Chinese etc

Our three most experienced developers have been working on Magento development for thirteen, ten and seven years respectively.

Now is the time to "Migrate to Magento 2".
