Magento Experts Share Tips on How to Migrate from Magento 1 to 2 [DesignRush QuickSights]

67,789 online stores are powered by Magento

Magento is one of the 10 most popular eCommerce platforms. It powers 67,789 online stores, according to Datanyze. The release of Magento 2 aims to improve the shopping experience by incorporating advanced features, including better security, faster loading times and enhanced usability.

DesignRush, a B2B marketplace connecting businesses with agencies, leveraged its 13,000-agencies-strong network for quick insights – or “QuickSights” – on the tips on how to migrate from Magento 1 to 2.

1) CREATE A MIGRATION PLAN

According to Vishal Lakhani, CEO at Rock Technolabs, the key to migrating from Magento 1 to 2 lies in creating a migration plan that incorporates all the key stages, from installing extensions to testing and launching the online store.

“Seamless migration from Magento 1 to 2 process includes creating a migration plan,” said Lakhani. “You should consider preparing the proper testing environment, migrating themes, installing extensions, customizing functionality, migrating data, testing & synchronizing the database and finally launching your Magento 2 store on a live server.”

2) THINK OF IT AS A WHOLE NEW PROJECT

Roger Rodrigo, head of engineering at Interactiv4, believes to seamlessly migrate from Magento 1 to 2, developers should approach the process as if they are working on a totally new project.

”When you plan to upgrade Magento 1 to Adobe Commerce or Magento Open Source, formerly known as Magento 2, you should think of it as a whole new project,’ said Rodrigo. “It’s not just a version upgrade; it is a migration to a different platform with its own code architecture and advanced features. Use this as an excellent opportunity to rethink and improve your online store to get more out of it.”
