Popular Questions About Shift4Shop Migration Service

Not seeing your question listed here? Contact Us for the quickest answer.

Is it possible to migrate my current website to Shift4Shop?

Absolutely! You can transfer the entire site, incorporating these essential elements: Name, SKU, Short Description, Full Description, Status, and the names of product categories. Litextension is here to assist you throughout this process.

Why do images disappear from Shift4Shop after migration?

That is because incorrect image URLs can also cause images to go missing after migration. When the domain name changes, the image URLs must be updated to match the new domain. Most Shift4Shop migration plugins handle this step automatically, but if it was a manual migration, you’ll need to update the image URLs separately.

Consider using a search and replace plugin or manually updating the image URLs in the wp_posts table of the database. If SSL is installed at the destination host, ensure that the images are not hard-coded over http://, as this can also lead to images not displaying properly.

Can I migrate categories and subcategories of products to Shift4Shop?

Yes. When transitioning your website to Shift4Shop, you have the seamless ability to transfer both categories and their corresponding subcategories. 

How long does a Shift4Shop migration take?

The duration of a Shift4Shop migration primarily hinges on the volume of content you intend to transfer. Normally, migration time will not exceed 24 hours. In many instances, it wraps up even sooner, often within a few hours. However, this timeline assumes a smooth migration without any technical glitches that could potentially impede the process.

Will my customer passwords be migrated to Shift4Shop?

Yes, but there’s a catch. When you switch to Shift4Shop, your old passwords won’t work anymore because different platforms use different rules for encoding passwords.

However, there’s a handy tool called the Customer Password Plugin that lets you access your old passwords on the new Shift4Shop platform. So, if you want to use your old password on your new Shift4Shop site, make sure to use the Customer Password Plugin! 

Why is my Shift4Shop site not showing up after migration?

That’s because you might have lost some files, like themes, plugins, or content. To stop this from happening, make sure to back up your entire site before moving it, so you don’t miss any important stuff.

Will my website’s SEO be affected by migrating to Shift4Shop?

Yes. Moving from one platform to another will impact SEO. However, don’t worry too much, Litextension provides SEO URL Migration service. This service will help you migrate URLs without losing existing rankings and traffic.

Can create URLs Redirects when migrating to Shift4Shop?

Yes. You can create URLs redirect for your store when migrating to Shift4Shop. As a result, your old store URLs can still work normally after migration.

  • Jocelyn

    I am in the process of moving my existing website over to Shopify. As this is my 4th iteration of my website, I knew I didn’t want to do the migration part myself again! Using this service meant that I could concentrate on running my business for a couple of days while the migration was being done for me.

  • Alex

    Lotus was phenomenal! She is detailed-oriented and works extremely fast! She helped with the migration from Wix to Shopify in no time. Thank you so much Lotus and everyone at LitExtension!

  • Velyan Angelov

    It was great service from those guys! Verry complex case with very old Woocommerce to new Woocommerce store!

  • Jen Gerard

    I built our new Shopify site myself but with no developer experience. I really struggled migrating products, customers and order history. It was a bit overwhelming until I found Lit. They helped me set it up and did the contract. Emailed me at every stage and listened to my feedback. I found them on Thursday and by Monday the work was completed.

    Took most of the work off our hands. The team were great and went out of their way to get the migration from J2store to Shopify completed. The time zone differences were slightly difficult but that didn’t stop the work from being completed.
