How our experts perform the migration.

A full migration is not a walk in the park, even for experienced platform migration professionals. That’s why we believe in educating clients on how an entire OpenCart store migrates to BigCommerce – and the fundamentals involved in the process. Here’s a simple rundown of how OpenCart to BigCommerce migrations work:


Backup your online store’s data

Interruptions due to OpenCart to BigCommerce migration processes may result in the loss of your data. That’s why you must perform a backup of your online store’s data to prevent the loss of your online store’s essential variables like store products, customer data, inquiry forms, and many more.


Launch and connect your BigCommerce store

Create an account in BigCommerce. Here, you will be asked to input your existing online store’s name and provide a few details about it including the category of your products and your company profile. Provide a Username/Client ID, API token, and API path for your new BigCommerce Store. Our support team will assist you with this.


Select and review additional options. Run a demo migration

Before transferring data from OpenCart to BigCommerce, carefully review additional options our migration experts may provide you. Entities such as product IDs, HTML tags, or product filters may be preserved and migrated to the Target Store. After reviewing, run a demo migration to help identify and address potential risks.


Conduct Full Migration and Tests

The duration of OpenCart to BigCommerce migration depends on the number of entities you have in your store and the 3rd-party tools and applications used in migrating data. Once the migration process is complete, verify if all data is transferred accurately.


Design and develop your BigCommerce store

Once data transfer from OpenCart to BigCommerce is complete, you are now ready to design and develop your BigCommerce store. Our designers may assist you in choosing the theme of your store while our developers will conduct regular tests to polish its UX.


Go live with your BigCommerce store

If third-party APIs are working without any issues, you will be notified by our developers when your store is live and ready to receive internet traffic. Tests will be conducted regularly to ensure site stability and smooth UX for site visitors.
