It is simple to migrate OpenCart to Shopify when conducted through LitExtension migration solution.

LitExtension can help you migrate products, orders, customers, and other data from OpenCart to Shopify automatically. Hence, let me guide you with the easiest steps to transfer your OpenCart store to Shopify.

Step 1: Enter carts’ information

On the Migration Page, click Create New Migration at the top right button on the screen. Select Opencart as Source Cart Type and provide its URL into the blank bar.

Then click LitExtension Connector to download the connector, extract the zip file, and upload connector to OpenCart’s root folder.

Right here, the Connector Installation will be automatically checked and informed on the screen without manual checking.

Select Shopify as Target Cart Type and provide its URL into the blank bar. Follow the brief instruction to get your API info and fill them in the form.

Step 2: Select entities you want to migrate

Choose entities you want to migrate. You can select either all of them together or certain data. For example, only Products, Customers, or Orders.

LitExtension also provides Additional Options here to extend your migration possibilities. Languages, Order Status and Customer Group will be matched together to be displayed correspondingly in the new store.

Step 3: Perform OpenCart to Shopify migration

LitExtension recommends that you execute a demo version to migrate OpenCart to Shopify first in order to see the results on your new shop. Plus, if you complete the demo migration, you will receive $5 in your balance!

  • To Try Demo: Start your demo migration with a limited number of entities. You will see the same actions as the actual migration. However, you can skip this step by clicking “Skip Demo Migration” button to immediately move forward to Full Migration.
  • To Perform Full Migration: Once the migration is started, it will run seamlessly on the server. Therefore, there’s no need to keep your PC on when transferring the data.
