Can I migrate several languages to Shopify?

While a direct migration of multiple languages from Big Cartel might not be possible, we can assist you in setting up a multi-language Shopify store using apps like Langify.

Can I migrate options and attributes from Big Cartel to Shopify?

We understand the importance of maintaining your product options and details. While a direct migration of all options and attributes might not be possible due to platform variations, we’ll do our best to preserve as much information as possible. We can import key product attributes into Shopify’s meta fields, ensuring this data is readily available for your use.

Why my product variants were not migrated from Big Cartel to Shopify?

If your product variants appear incomplete after transferring from Big Cartel to Shopify, it’s likely due to Shopify’s restrictions. Shopify limits products to a maximum of 99 variants and 3 options. If your Big Cartel products had more variations, those exceeding Shopify’s limits might not be fully transferred.

Can I migrate product categories on Big Cartel to Shopify?

We’ll help transfer your product organization as seamlessly as possible. While a direct category transfer might not be feasible due to platform differences, we’ll do our best to map your Big Cartel categories to suitable Shopify Collections, ensuring your products are categorized effectively on your new store.

Can I migrate my customer passwords from Big Cartel to Shopify?

When migrating your shop from Big Cartel to Shopify, please note that customer passwords cannot be transferred directly. This is because Shopify’s platform is designed with robust security measures and uses a restricted-access database to protect sensitive customer information, including passwords. Your customers will need to set up new passwords on your Shopify store.

Can I migrate my Big Cartel product SKUs to Shopify?

While Big Cartel might not use SKUs in the same way as Shopify, we’ll work to transfer any relevant product codes you’ve assigned to your products. We’ll map those codes to your Shopify products, helping maintain consistency in your inventory management.

Can I migrate Big Cartel reviews to Shopify?

While migrating from Big Cartel to Shopify, direct transfer of customer reviews is generally not possible due to platform limitations. However, you can explore third-party apps on Shopify that might offer solutions for importing reviews from external sources, helping you retain some of your valuable social proof.

    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.

    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.
