What is Data Migration? How It Works?

Data migration, with LitExtension, is a process of transferring data from one eCommerce platform to another. These data include products’ information, customers, orders, and other related fields. 

Data migration is crucial for businesses at a specific stage of their growth journey, usually to improve the capabilities and usability of the store. Store owners may want to perform shopping cart migration when they want to:

  • Increase capacity for more data and traffic
  • Add more features
  • Boost your website performance
  • Reduce unnecessary maintenance costs

Making a fresh start is sometimes much more beneficial than maintaining and fixing a poor and costly website. Look out for these top 6 signs to know when you should go for a website re-platforming

Since each platform has its own unique data structure, the migration process can’t be performed by simply exporting data from one store and importing to another. LitExtension’s automated system simplifies the process so that any merchant without technical knowledge can easily perform a migration in a few simple steps.
