What is cost incurred when migrating from your store to dream shopping cart?
“Before coming to LitExtension, I had to pay a big cost for Technology Company to migrate my site to WooCommerce because of too high incurred expenses”
Mike is CEO and founder of a natural skincare brand in USA. After 8 years of developing, his company has stores in New York, New Jersey. Norman is technical manager, he built online store on Volusion shopping cart, which received thousands of visits per day.
Earlier this year, their company had necessary to migrate Volusion to WooCommerce cart to increase website performance and control online store easily. Norman hired a company to migrate data with basic price at $69. However, total amount payable is approximately $485 including a migration process, four additional options (persevering Order IDs, Customer IDs, Product IDs on Target Store and transferring images in product descriptions to WooCommerce Store). Unfortunately, the first migration is not successful.
The technology company recommended him two options to solve this case. The first option is trying with re-migration service to perform online store migration all over again with discount a half of price. It means that each re-migration service has price at 50% of current full migration price. However, there are nothing to be sure migration process will be the last migration. The second option is using Data Migration Assistant Service. This service can help Skincare Company to save time to move data and increase ability to succeed. A main problem is that its cost is very high. Norman presented with Mike that price of this service for website with 8,000 entities was higher than current total amount payable. It was about $600. The incurred expenses were too expensive, far more than they expected. They were so worried about this problem.
Two options of Technology Company did not make Norman feel comfortable. He looked for helps form the international communities, social networks, forums. He received many different advices. Luckily, he told to Alex Nguyen, an information technology expert with more than 10 years of experience in web development and e-commerce solutions. Norman described his issue clearly. Alex Nguyen analyzed situations, supported information carefully. Converting database from source store to target store is not simple. Many errors can be happened in the migration process. Probability of success in the first migration is quite low, especially complex sites. After long conversations, Norman decided to choose different migration tool of LitExtension instead of trying options of hired technology company. Loosing approximately $500, it was not an easy decision. However, he believed that LitExtension migration tool could help his company to move data to WooCommerce cheap and quickly.
After proposing to CEO of Skincare Company, he purchased and downloaded tool from LitExtension website. It seems that migration steps are easier than old tool. He was surprised, because this tool can migrate customer password while many companies say it is impossible. He received more benefits, more free additional features such as re-migration, recent data migration. Total price is less than a half price of old company’s service. The most important thing is no incurred expenses.
Norman said, “Before coming to LitExtension, I had to pay a big cost for Technology Company to migrate my site to WooCommerce because of too high incurred expenses. I really want to suggest LitExtension tool because of cheap price, good features and strong support.”
