Let’s be honest – If your store is built on Big Commerce, you’ve been thinking about migrating to another platform for quite some time.
Whether you’re fed up with the lack of features, or simply terrified that if something were to go wrong, you won’t have much help fixing it > In other words, you’re out of business.
You can migrate your Big Commerce website using online tools such as Cart2Cart, or, you can hire my team to help you do it (Safety) at a fraction of the cost. All in all, there are real reasons why now, not later, is the perfect time to start migrating your store over to Shopify.
Shopify offers countless apps and integrations that can enhance your store and sales while saving time and energy that would otherwise need investing into manually doing these tasks yourself (or hiring someone else). From email marketing integrations such as MailChimp and Constant Contact to product reviews apps like JudgeMe or Beeketing AI Personalization, there is truly something for everyone on Shopify’s app marketplace! In comparison, Big Commerce does not offer nearly as many apps or integrations—which means far less control over how you manage customer relationships or run promotions on your site without doing everything manually yourself (which again would take time away from other important tasks).
It’s essential that any online store has backups in place in case something goes wrong with the site or server hosting it. With Shopify, you get automatic backups every day and if anything were ever to happen, they’d have your back with their 24/7 customer support team ready to help restore things quickly and easily. On top of that, their servers are also backed up multiple times a day so that no data is ever lost or corrupted due to technical issues on their end. In comparison, Big Commerce offers only manual backup options and no guarantee that they’ll be able to restore any lost data if something was ever go wrong with the server hosting your site.
Shopify provides outstanding customer support for all its users. Whether it’s an issue with setting up or maintaining a store or simply a question about billing, customers can contact them 24/7 via phone or email for assistance from a knowledgeable team member who will do whatever it takes to get things sorted out as quickly as possible. In comparison, Big Commerce does not offer 24/7 customer service—their support team only works during regular business hours—so if something were ever go wrong outside of those hours then there’d be nobody around who could help fix it until they were back at work the next day (assuming they even respond then).
As mentioned above, there are certainly robust tools to migrate from Big Commerce to Shopify. That said, many business owners or marketing managers don’t have the time or dev skills to execute such a transfer and run a profitable business at the same time.
The safest way to transfer your website is to build it, test it, and launch it without ever touching your current Big Commerce instance. With test transactions in place, and all the proper 303 redirects ready to roll, you can transfer your entire website (with a bit of a facelift) and pick right up where you left off. Additionally, when it’s time, you’ll be ready to start rolling out some of the most used tools to drive traffic and revenue that you couldn’t even dream of on Big Commerce.
