Migrating to Magento 2
If your business is currently using a Magento Community version between 1.5 to 1.9, you will already know that support for Magento 1 ended in June 2020, as have software security patches. Magento's full focus has moved to Magento 2 Open Source and Commerce solutions. Therefore, we recommend migrating to Magento 2 urgently, in addition to all benefits the latest platform offers.
Magento 2 offers a huge leap forward in flexibility and functionality over Magento 1, including significantly faster load speeds, a responsive front end, and easier integrations.
Your customers will also benefit from a smoother experience, including a simpler checkout process, stronger responsive/ mobile friendly design, and improved security.
Magento 2 is now, and the future. Magento, module developers and the Magento community are all focusing on excellence for this platform.
Magento 1 software is now unsupported, including security patches, which can be incredibly risky for your ecommerce operation.
What is the Migration process?
When deciding to move your store to Magento 2, it is important to develop a robust migration plan detailing how and when planned action is to
be taken during the process to ensure the migration runs smoothly.
Review of current extensions and identify which ones are needed, to carry across, or update.
Scope out any advanced functionality and look ahead to longer term requirements, utilising Magento's flexibility
Create and test
Install Magento 2 and set up your new store (maintaining similar design to your existing store).
Stop any Magento 1 activity (bar order management functions), migrate your data across and test.
Before launching, any additional data such as new orders, customers, reviews etc. Into your Magento 2 store

Upgrading to Magento 2 from another platform?
We love bringing companies onto Magento!
If your business is considering switching to Magento 2 from another platform, you are not alone. Whilst there are other eCommerce platforms that help business get online and achieve initial revenue gains, these platforms typically then fall short in terms of custom functionality, more sophisticated features, integrations, reporting and databases, which help enable a smaller retailer grow into a larger, prosperous one. This is where Magento can excel.
Migrating to Magento from Shopify, BigCommerce or any other platform is obviously not a simple operation; it involves changing database structures, themes and working with new APIs.
However, expertly planned, and managed, what can look like a daunting process can become a seamless and trouble-free process, enabling you to then start to achieve your full eCommerce growth potential.

Some of our work
We are only happy because our clients are
I used to be a ChannelAdvisor user for just over 2 years, but it has been next to impossible to get new features added. I was contacted by 247 Commerce while looking for an alternative, and they answered all my questions and created all the features I requested. The move from ChannelAdvisor to CloudHub was quick and simple as they helped us transfer our data over. The support was and continues to be very responsive, even when the queries are trivial. I would recommend 247 CloudHub and look forward to a long and successful partnership with them.

It is not often I can be overwhelmed with a service these days, but this is as good as it gets. 247 were easy to contact, always had somebody on hand to deal with any issue within a few hours. A lesson for bigger companies. Totally happy with this service – a breath of fresh air.
Stephen TownrowManaging Director, Direct Products UK Ltd
I honestly can’t say enough good things about 247 Commerce. They’ve been fabulous and I feel completely confident in saying that if you decide to select 247, you won’t regret it.
