Magento1 to Magento2 Migration

How to get Magento 1 into Magento 2?

So once you've made the decision its time to move from Magento 1 to Magento 2 we have to analyze your current store. From this analysis we will look at some key areas of your Magento website installation, This allows us to work out how much work it will take for us to rebuild your website into Magento 2.

Data Audit

We firstly must analyze your database, do you have any specific tables or database routines that are outside of the standard Magento flow. If so we need to find out what they do and how they work so as to ensure your data is consistent from the Magento 1 or Magento 2 transition.

Theme Audit

The theme is the visual part of your website, we need to find out how much work is involved in recreating Magento 1s theme into Magento 2. Some themes are moved across quite easily, however others take a lot of work and some even require a full rebuild ... Sometimes customers prefer an entire redesign and in some earlier sites use the opportunity to redesign and go mobile responsive.

Extensions Audit

This is vital as your Magento 1 extensions will not work in Magento 2, So we have to audit your websites extensions, find out what custom extensions you have can replicate or find alternatives to these extensions that suit Magento 2. Sometimes we may have rewrite the replicate ourselves if one isn't available on the Magento Connect Marketplace


Implemented Changes

So as part of your rebuild do you want your website to work differently, Especially if you are unhappy with something but have put up with it. Use this opportunity to change what you don't like. We have to rebuild and modify it anyway so let us modify it to your liking!

Implementation and Integration

We need to ensure any integration currently using the Magento 1 system are switched properly and that the service you are integrating into or vice versa is expecting Magento 2 and the scope any code changes.

Payment Gateways

It's important that your Payment gateways are fully supported in Magento 2. If you use Sagepay, Worldpay or PayPal you will be fine but if you are using payment methods less standardized they may not work.

Hosting Changes 

Most times Magento 1 Hosting is adequate enough for Magento 2 with a few little amendments however we need to check your site doesn't have a totally bespoke hosting requirement that needs to be considered.



Data consistency is important after we have done an initial dump of data from your Magento 1 site and start building your Magento 2 website in the meantime orders, products, customers etc are going to change on your Magento 1 site so these changes have to be factored into the build.


Once we have completed our analysis of the Magento 1 website we can then create a specification to build your website in Magento 2. This document will outline everything that we will do for the website with accurate time estimations on how long things will take. From this will give you a quotation for the rebuild. 

Unlike other companies, we stick by our quotes, so if we give you a price and things take a lot longer than we expect, that isn't your problem and you won't ever be charged any more than our original specification quoted price.
