Why Should You Migrate From Magento to BigCommerce

If you still have your online store on Magento 1, it’s time to migrate data. If not, hackers will be able to breach the system and steal all of your customer data!

It’ll also be difficult for Magento developers to keep up with security patches that are necessary in order to protect against threats like these.

Magento 1 users may face a loss of PCI DSS compliance after June 2020 if they do not regularly apply data security patches.

If your business is reliant on the use of these payment cards, you will want to start making plans now for transitioning onto other supported platforms in preparation for this change.

The entire tech stack and digital ecosystem of your business require current technology in order to function.

This includes payment processor compliance, security measures for customer information, the global Magento community’s focus on upgrading their own software/services towards compatibility with Magento 2.

What Are The Main Differences Between Magento and BigCommerce

Store owners look at their business needs and what technology can help them scale when deciding on a tech stack.

Magento store is scalable in different ways compared to BigCommerce, so merchants have choices depending on how they want it to grow.

BigCommerce stores are easier to set up and manage than Magento stores. This is because they offer the same customizability as a cloud-based SaaS platform, but with less development time and cost.

BigCommerce is like living in a pre-built house, where you only need to move your belongings inside and decorate it.

Magento is like building the structure of your own home from scratch before moving there, hiring an architect for help with any questions or concerns throughout this process.

Magento 2 is a great choice for merchants that want to make code changes because it’s an open-source platform.

Magento has near-unlimited customization flexibility, which makes this the perfect solution for retailers with high demands and unique needs.

BigCommerce is flexible enough for many merchants to use without running into limitations.

BigCommerce features include customizability, integrations, and hosting service that makes it easy to get started with no technical experience necessary.

Magento Platform Is More Complex and Costly

When you are operating an eCommerce business, it is important to find the best platform that can not only save your company money but also improve its overall performance.

BigCommerce has been proven time and again as being one of those platforms.

BigCommerce is a great target store platform for small business owners with up to 600 SKUs on one product.

Magento, however, supports more than this and may be the better choice if you need customization of your site or have over 600 products in total.

BigCommerce Platform Is Flexible and Scalable

BigCommerce is a SaaS-based platform, which means you can get set up quickly and it’s scalable for more complex stores.

Bigcommerce works well with large stores because of its flexibility as a platform that will meet your needs now and in the future.

BigCommerce Customization

BigCommerce is a hosted, cloud-based eCommerce platform that allows companies to quickly build an online target store.

They support the type of customization previously thought possible only with open source platforms like Magento which are known for their high flexibility and extendability but lack speed, scalability, and ease of use.

BigCommerce has made huge strides in supporting very specific types of customizations through APIs & headless commerce that were difficult before because they required extensive technical knowledge on how websites work under the hood (i.e., HTML/CSS), whereas BigCommerce gives you access to this technology without needing any prior experience with it so your website can be built faster than ever!

What Are the Steps of a Successful Magento to BigCommerce Migration?

There are some steps for a successful target store full migration, but there is no need to worry about the details. All you have to do is follow these instructions!

Plan Customer Data Migration

There are many things to consider before you migrate. You will need a list of all data like categories, customers, billing address, shipping address, and products that won’t go along with what is staying on your old website so it can be uploaded onto your new site.

The items that don’t go would include bundled software, outdated content (such as archived articles), BigCommerce store settings (to ensure information such as payment processing remains intact,) and legacy apps that might no longer exist in their original form or function.

Determine Source and Information Structure

The most linked URLs and pages should be transferred from the existing Magento store. They will help you launch the website effectively by ensuring that all of your key content is carried over correctly.

Choose Crucial Data For Data Migration

Create a checklist for all the different things you want to bring over, but also create a list of data that needs to be removed.

At this time it is best practice to remove outdated content and consolidate URLs as well as streamline how your website works moving forward with migrating from one place or platform into another.

Set Up a Demo Migration

Before migrating from Magento to BigCommerce store, be sure your new platform meets all your data needs.

To accomplish this goal successfully, a small test data migration should take place before the real Magento to BigCommerce migration by using a demo migration that is representative of what would actually need to move over.

Also, verify that any product information such as billing address, shipping address details, and images will work correctly in the migrated eCommerce platform prior to moving everything over for good.

Initiate Full Magento to BigCommerce Migration Process

Now that your website has been through a successful launch, it’s time to initiate full migration. Your data might fall into one of the following categories:

  • Product information, SKUs, and images
  • Categories for products
  • 301 redirects
  • Customer details such as name and address
  • Historical orders (completed/pending)

Launch Your New BigCommerce Store and Testing

Once you’re done with primary tasks, it is important to check for API integrations in your staging area. This ensures that all third-party APIs are functional and running smoothly without any issues.

Before you launch your eCommerce site, it’s important to ensure that all features are running smoothly. Some of the key things to check include:

  • Checkout/payment processing and shipping via a test order
  • Third-party integrations (CMS, email marketing app, etc.)
  • SSL certificate for data security purposes.
  • Design elements like product pages match up with CMS platforms used on other sites where possible
  • Make sure images load properly as well since they may be large files making loading time slower than normal if not optimized correctly.
  • Look out for mismatches between different products or categories across these platforms in terms of design layout.
  • SEO settings like metadata and link redirects should also work seamlessly after changes are made through one platform.

User Testing and Functionality

In order to launch the new store with the same functionalities as before, they combine built-in core functionality and some third-party apps after full migration. Besides universal Apps, Optimum7’s developer team can create customizations specific to your store’s needs. Take a look at our eCommerce App page for more information!

After BigCommerce migration, there are often unexpected issues with the website. It is important that continuous user testing be done in order for bugs or bottlenecks related to hosting, product catalogs and checkout can be identified quickly by users.
