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.

Export files from Shopify, or BigCommerce, can be imported into your WooCommerce store using the WP All Import plugin.
