Very few business owners are fortunate enough to pick the right platform from the start that is scalable and robust. Most of the online retailers change their ecommerce platform after few years because their existing ecommerce platform is too restrictive. They lack the control and power.
Does this sound familiar? When you started you picked a platform that worked for your immediate needs. But now after years of achieving your ecommerce milestones you are realizing that your ecommerce platform needs to be upgraded. Change isn’t always easy, especially when it is of ecommerce platform, but it should not be delayed when the need arises.
In ecommerce, a website is responsible for the customers’ experience and interactions. When the business grows, lots of money and time is spent on the online business, but a lagging ecommerce platform can drain the whole investment. The sales do not increase and the customer’s response on the website is reflective of that.
Shopify makes it easy to grow your online business at any level. Shopify is an awesome ecommerce platform with powerful features. By migrating to Shopify can increase your customer’s engagement, raise conversion rates and reduce marketing and other expenses.
Reasons Your Ecommerce Website Needs To Migrate to Shopify
Here are the five major reasons why you should consider migrating to Shopify ( without any delay ):
1- Design for branding: To survive and outperform in the ecommerce sphere, it is essential to establish a strong brand. And for branding, a good modern-looking design is crucial. This is the primary reason why many decide to migrate to Shopify from their old platforms.
2- Going mobile: As mobile use has exploded over the years, you do not want to lose any online sales. If you are complaining about miserable mobile conversions despite having high mobile traffic, then your ecommerce web design is not optimized for smaller screens. For many, the reason why they migrate to Shopify for a new design is mobile ease.
3- Swift buying experience: The checkout page is the decisive stage in online sales. Often checkout pages seem to be confusing for the customers. The Shopify checkout page resolves all these pain points. It is not just optimized for mobile, but the clean and straightforward one-page checkout auto-fills many fields (like city, state) using the IP address of the customer.
4- Highly extensible: It is incredibly easy to access new features & enjoy increased functionality with Shopify. Usually, it is terrifying to add new functionality! There are often compatibility and stability issues. Shopify makes it as simple to extend its power with new features and functionalities. It is a matter of a few clicks and you are all done!
5- Intuitive interface: The admin interface of other platforms might provide you all the options you need, but this is not what you can call an intuitive interface. Shopify has many important features that are handy and readily available. It is so easy, simple and intuitive that you can start using Shopify from day 1 without any training or guidance.
Okay, let’s say I am ready. Tell Me More!
Migration from one ecommerce platform to Shopify can be a little challenging for most. A key component is how easy it is to move data from one platform to another. If the data is complex, especially with a number of product options, the data import will be difficult. Shopify provides instructional manuals, charts and videos to help understand the data structures – but it is not easy for everybody to use it like an expert.
Also, migration should be carefully managed because the new site is there to increase sales. User testing is the key to ensure that the new design positively impacted the user’s experience and conversions. If the users leave negative feedback, then it will obviously have negative impact on the sales.
Therefore, we advise you to solicit the help of a professional agency for this project.
