Magento 1 to Magento 2 migration

Magento 1 to Magento 2 migration includes design transfer, database, Magento extensions, and functionality. Magento 2 offers better features such as increased conversion rates, better user experience, and increased page speed.

Benefits from Upgrading Magento

Magento 1 to Magento 2 migration costs are negligible when compared to the following upgrade benefits:

Page loading speed

  • Pages load 50% faster than Magento 1.
  • Magento 2 reduces customer errors at checkout thus drastically improving the mobile shopping experience.
  • The number of orders that can be processed has increased 117% per hour.
  • Pages now have an abridged CSS, HTML, and JS with a full-page cache capacity to give you up to 2.1 million additional views per hour.


User-Friendly interface

  • Upgrading from Magento 1 to Magento 2 gives you access to the new interface which is effortless for consumers to use and navigate
    • Increasing the total number of completed transactions.

  • The updated dashboard is extended and shows sales volume, current orders, top-selling products, important customers, and other great features.



With sensitive information being uploaded constantly, customers need to know and feel their personal data is safe, secure and not subject to being hacked. Magento 2 has a in-built data theft protection system.

Business to Business component

Magento 1 to Magento 2 upgrade unlocks the B2B component. This is aided by the use of newer technologies such as the Advanced Message Queuing Protocol, Composer, and ElasticSearch, Representational State Transfer application program interface (REST API) all which are used to enhance transactions between businesses.


Magento 1 upgrade to Magento 2 has guaranteed community support whenever required. Continued use of Magento 1 means no community support when problems are encountered.

What Happens If You Don’t Migrate from Magento 1 to Magento 2?

  • End of support: There is more community support for Magento 1.
    • Currently, all issues being solved by the community are based exclusively on the enhanced features of Magento 2.
  • No developers: Developers are no longer working with Magento 1, they are all currently working with Magento 2. Developing agencies are concentrating their resources on building extensions for Magento 2, and will no longer implement or support Magento 1 development.
  • No updates: For optimal functioning of the Magento 1 platform, modules and extensions are essential. Since all Magento developers are working on the Magento 2 platform, all the modules and extensions on Magento 1 have expired.
  • No security: Magento 1 has stopped receiving security updates, there are no security firewalls and no other forms of security available for Magento 1. This will expose users to hackers and other cyber threats. Therefore, moving from Magento 1 to Magento 2 is highly recommended.Why Do I Need Migrating Services If There Is a Data Migration Tool?Migration cannot be carried out with just one click as there are many factors to be considered.


Magento 1 and Mangento 2 are two different systems.

  • Problems with themes: Themes used in Magento 1 are either absent or modified in Magento 2, the coding sequences are different, so you will need help finding these themes, creating or buying a new theme on Magento 2.
  • Extensions: Extensions used in Magento 1 do not work with Magento 2. Therefore, you will need assistance finding the related extensions on Magento 2, so your website can function optimally. If the extensions used are not found, you may need assistance developing a brand new extension. In cases where the extensions are complicated, Magento 2 migration will take more time and may incur in additional costs.


Migration Includes the Following Steps

Data migration:

All data — customers, products, orders, ratings, wish lists, page setup, and settings from Magento 1 database to Magento 2 using a data migration tool.

Theme migration:

Theme is either upgraded to Magento 2 version, a custom theme can be created, or a new theme is acquired from the Magento store.

Extension migration:

This is a tough process because extensions on Magento 1 are not compatible with Magento 2. Extensions are available at the Magento store. We can also build custom extensions.

Product migration:

Migration of product data such as, description, attributes, meta descriptions, tags, specifications and customer information.


Most custom code can be migrated from Magento 1 to Magento 2 and can be made suitable with the help of the open-source Magento Code Migration Toolkit.

Quality assurance:

This is achieved by using the Magento 2 Test Framework, this makes sure that the new code is in line with the Magento 2 requirements.
