Now let’s get into the details on how to migrate to WordPress. The first thing to do is to set up a WordPress plan.
Before migrating from Shopify to WordPress, WordPress should be set up. WordPress is free to download and utilize, but you’ll have to track down a host for your new website.
There are various different hosting solutions available to merchants and freelancers. Be that as it may, we suggest settling on a WordPress cloud arrangement. Begin by visiting our WordPress oversaw facilitating page, and choosing the right size answer for your requirements.
Whenever you’ve finished this stage, you’ll have the option to sign into your Client Portal and access your WordPress administrator board.
Make sure the WordPress plugin is enabled

Sign into your Shopify account and explore your items in your Shopify account. Then, at that point, click on “export.” You can export your orders into a CSV document to help with several tasks.
2. WordPress Product Import
In your WordPress dashboard, navigate to WordPress Products.
Select Import at the top. There, you’ll find a built-in product CSV importert that will make the interaction easier.
Click Choose File and select the CSV file that you need to import.
Click Continue and you’ll see the Column Mapping screen, where WordPress automatically attempts to match the segment name of your Shopify CSV file to WordPress product fields. You might have to plan a portion of these all alone—do so using the dropdown menus to the right of each row.
Select “Run the Importer” and hold on until the import interaction is done. Then you should have the products migrated from Shopify to WordPress.
Step by step instructions to migrate from Shopify to WordPress using plugins
Tragically, Shopify does not provide an easy way to export data to a WordPress-supported format. We will need to use a few plugins to migrate Shopify to WordPress and vice versa. Let’s take a look at how you can move from Shopify to WordPress without using a costly migration service.
1. Save Your Shopify Data
Shopify to WordPress migrations were not a reliable process in the past. There was no free tool to export your trade store information from Shopify to WordPress. Be that as it may, the formation of the Shopify to WordPress Exporter has made migration easy.
To begin with, visit the Shopify to WordPress site. From here, you need to enter your Shopify site URL and give an email address.
Visit the Shopify to WordPress site. Click the submit button to proceed. It will take you to your store’s Shopify admin section, where you can download the application to make a Shopify account API key for data migration. Just click on the Install App button at the bottom to proceed.
On the next screen, the application will show you the information it will export using the Shopify API. It exports all your product data, product categories, customer data, and orders.
Note: Currently, the application doesn’t send out your Shopify pages or blog entries. You’ll have to manually import them into WordPress. You’ll have to give an email address where you’ll receive a link to download the export file.
You can go ahead and download the export file to your PC.
2. Import Shopify Data in WordPress
You have now exported your Shopify data. Next, you need to import it into your WordPress store. To do so, you need to switch to the admin area of your WordPress website.
You need to install and activate the Import Shopify To WP plugin. From that point, select the Choose File button to select and export the file you want to import.
Use the Shopify to WordPress plugin.
Click on the Upload button to proceed. Then, you’ll see a list of exported products found in your upload file. Simply click on the Start Import button to begin importing them into your WordPress store.
The plugin will now start importing your data. You’ll be able to see the progress of your upload on the screen. Click on the Continue button to move forward.
The plugin will now start importing your data. You’ll be able to see the progress of your upload on the screen.
3. Modifying Your WordPress Store
Now that you’ve effectively moved your items, orders, and other shop information from Shopify to WordPress, now is the right time to finish setting up your WordPress store.
This includes choosing a design, installing add-ons for additional options and functionality, and choosing tools to grow your WordPress website.
You will have to choose the correct theme and plugin according to your site. Once you confirm everything you migrated is in place, you can go live with your store.
