Over 6,000 words of eCommerce goodness :) Learn what went horribly wrong - and how you can avoid it.

When you’re a large eCommerce store pushing thousands of orders every month - the last thing you want to think about is completely migrating your money-maker to another platform. It’s a lot of work, and you’re pretty sure it will destroy sales - so you put it off. You keep putting it off until eventually, your site is broken beyond repair or your competition is gaining too much ground.

We moved our giant online store from Magento to Shopify Plus. A lot of people were actually surprised with our decision to move to Shopify Plus. They were convinced that Shopify Plus couldn’t handle our 10,000 SKUs, our thousands of transactions, our custom widgets, etc. They were wrong.

    Very thorough article - Thanks for sharing.

    Just curious: what version or edition of Magento were you previously using? Were you guys on the Community Edition?

      Great question. I don't remember off the top of my head - but I will reach out to the old dev team and find out.

        Thanks - Just curious as we've been hearing lots of buzz about Magento 2. Some say it's fine, others claim the new version is equally as poor. So, just wondering...

    Good question - it was Community Edition version 1.7.0.2
    Actually had a great chat with the C-Suite at Magento today - really good conversation. They have a ton of great stuff coming out soon - maybe they will let me get a sneak peak :)
