Episode 45: Migrating from Magento to WooCommerce

March 24, 2020 / Chris Lema

Description

In 2017, Magento announced that all support for their Magento 1 service would officially end in June 2020. This Magento “end of life announcement” alerted its users that all updates, support, and security would stop updating on that date.
For store owners based on Magento 1, the two main options became either upgrading to Magento 2 or transferring to a different platform altogether. Today, we’re discussing what you need to know to complete this transfer to another platform, emphasizing WooCommerce as a desirable destination for your store.
On this episode you’ll hear:
  • A recap of the importance and implications of the Magento 1 end of life announcement
  • The time cost of a migration to a new platform
  • The main ways to ensure a successful transition from Magento 1 to a WooCommerce site
If you’re looking for information about how to transfer your site from one platform to another, then this is one episode you won’t want to miss!
