  • WooCommerce Source Store: 1.x, 2.x, 3.x
  • Shopify Target Store: Shopify, Shopify Plus



Now, let me walk you through a step-by-step guide to transfer from WooCommerce to Shopify using LitExtension’s automated migration tool.

Migrate WooCommerce to Shopify in 3 Steps

But before we get into the details, you should register an account on the LitExtension site first if you haven’t had one. You can take advantage of your Facebook or Google account to log in easily.

Step 1: Set up Source Cart and Target Cart

Once you have logged in, click “Create new migration”. Then, you will see a page where you can enter the information of your Source and Target Cart.

First of all, choose WooCommerce as your Source Cart from the drop-down menu. Then enter your store URL.

Follow the instructions to download the “le_connector” file. This connector has only one function, which is creating a bridge between your WooCommerce database with the LitExtension App.

Extract the zip file and upload the Connector folder to WooCommerce’s root folder on your server. Once you are done, a notification will appear on your screen “Connection was successfully installed“.

Step 2: Configure migration

This is where you choose the entities that you want to migrate from WooCommerce to Shopify. LitExtension supports migrating products, customers, pages, blog posts, and coupons in this case. You can choose to migrate only a few or click “Select all” to migrate all of them.

To help you extend your migration possibilities, LitExtension also offers some additional options such as Clear current data on Target Store before Migration or Create the 301 redirects on your Target Store after migration. The former option allows you to delete all the existing data that you have chosen above on your Target Store (if you have any). The data duplication risk can therefore be avoided. 301 redirect is a procedure of pointing URLs from one site to another. In other words, when your customers click on the links of your old WooCommerce website, they will be redirected immediately to the corresponding page on your new Shopify store.

Steps 3: Perform Migration

Now you are ready to run the migration. We highly recommend you run the FREE DEMO migration first to see how LitExtension handles the migration process. After that, you will receive $5 and later you can use it as a discount when running Full Migration.

Once the migration starts, it will run seamlessly on the server. Therefore, there’s no need to keep your PC on while the migration process is running. It is completely safe to turn it off! Take a break, have a cup of coffee and your email will receive a notification when the LitExtension completes the process.
