Important things to consider while migrating

An asset with protocols:

To enhance the accessibility of all assets, it is recommended to eliminate certain protocols, such as HTTP and HTTPS, from the URLs. This will simplify the process and make it easier for users to access the desired content.

URL Redirects:

Setting up URL redirects for the pages that customers have bookmarked is crucial after migrating from Magento to Shopify. This is essential in retaining existing customers and ensuring a seamless transition.

Customer passwords:

You cannot migrate customer passwords as they are encrypted for security purposes. Therefore, your customers will have to create new passwords through their Shopify accounts. You will need to kindly request that customers follow this process to ensure the safety and privacy of their personal information.

Blog posts and articles:

Following the relative path, you can easily locate and remove blog images without disrupting the rest of the content. This will ensure the images are properly extracted and the content is transferred seamlessly. It is important to note that embedded images can slow down the loading time of a website, so removing them can improve the overall user experience.
