Data Migration from Magento to Shopify
Shopify is an out of the box web application that allows you to quickly and easily create an online store. It provides you with several templates that can be customized to meet your requirements. One of the key factors behind integrating with Shopify is that users without much knowledge of technical or design skills can create a store without hiring a designing agency or a web developer. People who are familiar with HTML and CSS can have the control over the design of templates as it allows the editing of both. Moreover, Shopify has auxiliary apps available for you to assist in the complete eCommerce process from inventory management to customer management. It allows entrepreneurs to concentrate on their business and not on the technical side of the website and shopping management. Moving away from Magento to Shopify is a fairly complex process and has a lot of work included in it. However, TBI has successfully migrated the Magento online store to Shopify.
