Let’s see what are advantages of Version 3 that more outstanding in comparison with our own Version 2.

 

1. The data migration process much easier

Firstly, the most significant improvement in making your migration process much more effortless is the higher level of automation.

If in version 2, you will complete your data transfer via a module called LitExtension. It is installed and attached directly on your target site and can be found right on your menu panel, now in Version 3, you can perform by easily registering an account on LitExtension site, then create New Migration and start the process effortlessly. This Version 3 will provide you a very user-friendly interface. We created it to make sure that anyone can use at the first look with no training or complicated introduction required, or in the other words, our detail guide could bother you as an unnecessary part.

9. The Migration much quicker!

The higher level of automation is one of the key reducing data migration time. The advantage is also supported by the following factors.

If in the Version 2, we advise you to not close the Browser Window during data migration. Now in Version 3, you can shut any devices, even wifi, and energy supply after starting your migration. You can do whatever else you want. Your data will continue moving to a new destination and you can check the result via email. When the migration is done or some error arising in your migration, the system will send you an email to inform. From our side, experts will quickly check and fix that matter. You don’t need to track migration all time and we can control any issues without the procedure of manual checking one by one. Really fast!

In this version, you can choose which server is the nearest your current store’s location. It is super helpful in boosting your migration speed. For example, you are in the USA, you can choose server put in the USA to reduce the time of transfer, similar to Canada, Europe or India, Australia and so on.

Furthermore, your process will be closely followed by our data experts via admin center control panel so any problems arising will be handled quickly.

 

10. You can save a lot of money

Furthermore, the main features in version 3 are not too different from the previous one. You can choose what entities you want to migrate in data migration, for example, Products, Customers and Orders, etc. Then LitExtension still provides a list of additional features to extend your migration possibility. For example, Clear Data on Target site, Migrate Recent Data, Migrate Customer Password, Strip HTML tags, Migrate Additional pictures, Migrate SEO, Create 301 and so on. And good news, to improve our service, serve Customers better and reduce your Migration Cost, LitExtension will not charge you any fee for Customer Password ($49), Migrate SEO ($99) and Create 301 redirect ($99) and many other options which have been free in version 2.
