Why my product variants were not migrated from GoDaddy to Shopify?

Due to the peculiarities of Shopify functionality, it sets limits for product variants.

Can I migrate options and attributes from GoDaddy to Shopify?

Shopify doesn’t allow creating product options and attributes. So, you cannot migrate options and attributes from GoDaddy to Shopify.

But don’t worry, if your Source Cart has this type of data, during the data migration process, LitExtension will generate product variants out of your existing product options on your Target Shopify Store.

Regarding attributes, to have product descriptions displayed, our tool will import them to meta fields on Shopify.

Note that, due to Shopify’s limitations, any product on Shopify only has less than 99 variants.

As a result, your products will be migrated from GoDaddy to Shopify with no more than 99 variants and 3 attributes.

    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.

  • 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.
