When is it time to switch to Shopify?
Growth and ease in focus
You want to focus on growth, but your current ecommerce platform does not support your business in the way you had hoped. You want a platform that grows with you, automates your manual work and frees you to develop your customer experience.
Say goodbye to cost sinks and technical problems
You want an agile online store and to stop putting out fires. Maintaining your current platform is expensive, you spend your time on troubleshooting technical problems instead of growth, or making changes is slow.
How we transfer your store from your old platform to Shopify:
We take the time to learn about your business’s needs and goals in details. We do not transfer old problems to a new platform. Our experienced experts can recommend important properties for your online store that will suit your business, in particular.

When the process is done carefully, data that is important for business is not lost while being transferred. The Woolman team has done many transfers from ecommerce platforms to Shopify.

The Finnish online store Acon was disappointed by its transfer to the Magento 2 platform and, with the help of Woolman, switched to the Shopify Plus solution. For Acon, which had achieved impressive global growth, it was important to move resources away from wrestling with technical problems to marketing and international expansion. The US is an important market for Acon and now the company is using the opportunities offered by Shopify to use Amazon and eBay as sales channels for its online store. Read the Acon story.
