Magento - M1 to Shopify

Magento Migration from M1 to Shopify

Magento 1 (M1) has been retired completely in June 2020. The team at Magento is now clearing up all supported tools, extensions, help documents and everything else from Magento repositories. M1 will soon become a history with no support or help provided by it's mother company.

It is no longer advisable to keep your store on M1 for various reasons as below:

  • Loss of PCI Compliance - Most payment gateways require that you conduct a quarterly PCI compliance scan on your store. Your store couldn’t pass those PCI scans without proper security patches and security monitoring.
  • Insufficient Support - There will be no support from Magento for any M1 related issues. Magento has deleted all M1 extensions and support documentation.
  • No Security Updates - There would be no security update for Magento 1 or it's extensions.
  • M1 runs on old PHP versions and many hosting companies are retiring old PHP versions and your store may no longer function (this actually happened with two of our clients).

While many businesses used M1 successfully for years and there is an option to move to M2 but this migration may not be completely suitable for various reasons. Shopify is a great option if you are considering to move to a non Magento system.

Some advantages of moving to Shopify:

  • Shopify is easy to manage and maintain.
  • Shopify takes care of backend and hosting, so you don't have to worry about backend.
  • Shopify updates and fixes their server systems, so you don't have to work on server related bugs or version updates.
  • Shopify gives all user PCI Level 1 compliance to protect their account from cyber attacks .
  • One issue with Shopify is that you do not own all the code and hence you cannot customize everything, however if you are using a simple Magento system then Shopify could be a perfect choice for you.

CommerceCodes/Firstwire have been the team behind our Magento 1 website migration to Magento 2. This was a complex migration involving a custom template and retention of all the functionality and styling we had developed over the past 2 years on Magento 1. Our site also had an integrated POS including the ability to take secure payments both online and instore linked to a shared inventory for a true omni channel retailing experience. The new site is based on a clean Magento 2 template which has been adapted and coded to meet the styling and functions we needed. The team at Firstwire have been on hand and responsive throughout the migration and have delivered a clean well functioning site that is integrated to Royal Mail SagePay and our POS system. We are also connected to google shopping to serve our ads through it and google analytics allowing us to track and adjust our campaigns accordingly. Our new Magento 2 site is a clear progression in terms of functionality and usability and framework and we are very please with the outcome of the website which was delivered on budget. We look forward to further enhancing and refining the site with FirstWire as we grow.

When it comes to creating professional, attractive, and effective website, there is no company that can surpass FirstWire Apps. Thanks to Anand Agarwal and his talented staff they were able to migrate my websites from Magento Version 1 (M1) to Magento Version 2 (M2) and do additional customizations. Thanks to their talent, our sites have taken off in the search engines. In my case study I was with another web design company for over 15 years and when it was time to upgrade into Magento Version 2 they wanted to charge us 30K, that’s when I was lucky to find FireWire. Anand was able to bring all the web design and scope of work and migration in under 10K within one month. The attention they gave us through this process was superb. If you are in the process of looking for web design company my advice is go with FirstWire.

They have worked on Migration from Magento 1 to Shopify and created a new website in Shopify for us. As we were moving from an well established old Magento website it was a big task. However they did an excellent job ,they selected a theme, transferred the products over and designed a lovely home page. Implementing all the other changes required to make the website user friendly was done very efficiently by Varun who whatever the number of changes required , and had usually completed them within a day or two and was asking for further changes. Overall I am very satisfied with the work done and would not hesitate in recommending their services .
