The common procedure for moving your online store to a new e-commerce platform:
- Install the e-commerce platform in a subdomain or subdirectory. For cloud-based platforms such as Shopify or BigCommerce, they already have an original domain so you don’t need to use a subdomain.
- Import data from your Source store to the new Target store.
- Install your desired theme and necessary extensions in the Target store.
- When everything is completed and your new Target store is ready to go live, point the real domain to the new Target store.
Enjoy your new home 🙂
