Smart Update

What is Smart Update and when to use it

Smart Update allows you to update data that has been edited and migrate those that recently appear in your Source Store during or after the Full Migration. 

While the migration process is running, your old store still operates normally. After setting up your new site, you might want to migrate all the recent adjustments and entities added during the process. In that case, LitExtension can help you bulk update your data and import new entities automatically with the Smart Update service.

We will compare data fields in both Source and Target Stores and look for the differences. If there is any, the app will immediately perform the update in your new store. 

We do not suggest you use “Re-migration” in this case, because this option will cost you extra money and take more time. Additionally, the most frustrating thing is that you may lose every customization you have added to your new store.

There are 5 default product fields that we are supporting:

  1. Quantity and stock
  2. Price
  3. Categories
  4. Product name
  5. SEO URL

However, in case you need to update other fields in product or even customer and order (for instance: order status), we still can customize and get them updated for you. All you need to do is submit your request.

Note: Smart Update can be used FOR FREEfor free and UNLIMITEDunlimited times within 3 months after full migration under the condition:

  • The total additional entities need to be fewer than 10% of the total number of entities in your initial migration.
  • After 3 months, Smart Update will cost 25% of your Basic Migration price.

How to run Smart Update?

Smart Update will only be performed after you’ve finished the full migration previously. Follow the steps below to perform Smart Update with Litextension:

Log in

Step 2:  On the My Migration Page, find your previous migration based on the Migration ID sent to your email and click on the “Smart Update” button.

Whenever you click on this option, our tool will scan and show you an overall report about the amount of newly added data in your Source Store since the full migration.

Step 3: After checking carefully all the details, hit “Start Smart Update Migration” at the end of the page to begin the process.

After the update, click on the button “Check result” so you can go directly to your new site to check the outcome.

Note: Make sure that every change from your Source Store has been made correctly on both the frontend and backend of your Target Store.
