Magento to Shopify Migration

* Optimise continues to operate at full capacity and efficiency during the outbreak of COVID-19

Magento has announced they will no longer be supporting the Magento 1 platform after June 2020. This means current users of Magento 1 will have to switch over to another ecommerce platform.

How long does the migration to Shopify take ?

This depends upon the size of data required to be moved across to the platform, the complexity of your current site and the requirements you have for a new site. We can provide an estimate following a site survey and discussion with you.

What about my SEO rankings ?

Rankings will take a couple of months to stabilise and regain their rankings. We recommend staying ahead of your competitors and making the migration sooner rather than later.

What happens when Magento 1 support stops ?

There will be no more updates and security provided with the end of M1. This could leave your site vulnerable to attacks. There may be patches by other web developers but this cannot be guaranteed.
