Migrate to Shopify. Magento to Shopify

There are quite a few easier things in the universe than to migrate to Shopify from Magento via EasyERP migration tool:

  • Sitting on a couch
  • Lying on a couch
  • Sleeping on a couch

But, jokes aside, first you have to collect all the necessary info from your Magento store. Which is:

  • Base URL
    EasyERP: Migrate to Shopify, Magento base url
  • Your account username
  • Your account password

Afterward, please enter it into the respected fields in the Source Channel tab. Channel name field simply reflects the name of a channel in EasyERP and is not relevant. Its name is all up to you. All you have to do is to press Save channel button and it is done.

As you have finished with the Source channel (Magento) it is time to gather some info on the Target channel (Shopify). Here, the required credentials are a bit different. That’s because every platform has its own integration rules. The same applies to every channel.

So, to fill in the Target channel tab (Shopify) you will need:

  • Base URL
    EasyERP: Migrate to Shopify, base url shopify
  • API key
    EasyERP: Migrate to Shopify, APIkey
  • API password
    EasyERP: Migrate to Shopify, APIpassword

 

 

 

To access API key and password in your Shopify store you’ll have to go to the Apps section, there in the footer of the page click on Manage private apps link. Here you’ll find necessary credentials.

Note: to avoid accidental flaws, we suggest to copy/paste both API key and password.

As in the case with Magento, the channel name is all up to you. Now press Save channel button and you’re done here.
