Shopping Cart Migration Guide

This documentation is designed to equip you for a seamless experience using LitExtension! Read on to gain all the required knowledge about cart migration, including a demonstration of the migration process, what you need to prepare before and after the migration.


What is Re-migration and when to use it?

Re-Migration Service allows you to move all your data from your Source Cart to the Target Cart all over again. This function will be an optimal solution to some of the problems you might encounter after the migration:

  • The Source/Target Cart of your initial migration was not set up properly which leads to some problems such as data display errors or data loss before, during or after the migration process.
  • Several migrated entities are corrupted due to some additional configurations implemented during the migration.
  • Some of your modifications cause a negative impact on your new store such as low loading time, damage to your customer, sales…

Note: Re-migration is a free option with unlimited times within 3 months after the full migration. The total number of entities in your re-migration must not exceed 10% of the total entity in your initial migration. The exceeding amount will be charged accordingly.

How to run Re-Migration
