Importing your web store into WooCommerce

Do you run a web store on Shopify (or BigCommerce) and wish you had more control over things? Maybe you wish you had more Payment options on your shop, more Staff accounts, or a more straight forward shop building experience. No matter what the cause, moving to a WooCommerce based shop can give you more control and flexibility over your store. Migrating your store can be a huge headache though, so how do you get that job done?

How can I migrate an existing e-commerce store from Shopify or BigCommerce over to WooCommerce?

Moving platforms can be a frustrating and scary experience. After all, if your web store is down you’re probably not making any money. So getting it done right the first time is just a little important. Thankfully if you are moving from Shopify or BigCommerce that process can be simple.

Both Shopify and BigCommerce have export options that allow you to export products, orders, and customers to CSV files. You can then use these CSV files to rebuild your store in WooCommerce. Export files from Shopify, or BigCommerce, can be imported into your WooCommerce store using the WP All Import plugin.
