If you are planning to migrate your webshop data from Magento to Stor below is a step by step guide on how this can be done.
Important to note: You can only import CSV files to Stor so please ensure all data that will be transferred is on a CSV file.
Data that can be transferred by CSV file upload: products, categories and customers (coming soon: orders).
Importing / Exporting Categories:
To import your categories from Magento, navigate to 'System' on the bottom left corner of your dashboard and select the 'Export' option.
Select the 'Mageplaza Categories Export' and remember to export the file in a CSV format.
Once you have downloaded your Magento categories CSV file, return to your Stor dashboard and select the categories tab on the left hand side.
Download the sample import template from Stor and fill in the data from your Magento file to the Stor template. Please note that for the upload to be successful, the data will have to be added in the corresponding columns in the Stor file.
Once you have completed the Stor import template, please save and upload the file on your Stor webpage. If you have any queries about this feel free to get in touch with our Support team on Live Chat or via email.
Importing / Exporting Products:
To export Products data, return to your Magento dashboard, select 'System' > 'Export'. In the Export Settings section, select 'Products' for the entity type. and choose the CSV option from the file format list.
Select which of the attributes you want to export - if you wish to exclude certain attributes then make sure to tick the box in the exclude column. Once you have pressed continue, the CSV file will be downloaded to your device.
Once you have downloaded your export file and saved it to your device, it is time to import the products to Stor. To import your products to Stor, log in to your Stor webpage and choose the products tab on the left side of the dashboard. Press the three dots on the right side to import your products.
Once you have selected import products, the below image will pop up on your screen. Download our sample import template and get ready to copy the information from your Magento product CSV file to our sample import CSV file.
The Magento CSV file format is slightly different to Stor’s CSV format - it is important to stick by our sample import template format for the file upload to be successful.
Our import template may look daunting but rest assured, you will be able to find all the necessary details to complete the columns from your CSV export file. The only thing that is absolutely necessary to complete in your Stor import file is name/title and price of your products. All other details can be added once the products have been imported.
When filling in the price, please do not include the currency symbol before the numerical value. In the visibility column, we do recommend for you to put ‘disabled’, this is so if any changes need to be done, you can go in and change it before it will be live on your page. If it is marked as enabled, when you import the product it will automatically be live on your Stor webpage.
In the quantity column, if there is a limited amount of the product type, please fill in the quantity amount in this column (if it is unlimited, please leave it blank). In the product type column, please include what type of product it is - in most cases it will be ‘physical’.
Copy and paste the data from your Magento file into the corresponding columns in the Stor import file, click save and upload the file by pressing the green button as shown below.
Importing / Exporting Customer data:
To export Customer data, return to your Magento dashboard, select 'System' > 'Export'. In the Export Settings section, select 'Customers Main File' for the entity type. and choose the CSV option from the file format list.
You will then see the Entity Attribute table. Select the attributes that you want to exclude from your customer CSV file.
To download the file, click continue. Your customer data file will then download to your computer - make sure to save it in your files.
To import your customer CSV file to Stor, please log in to your Stor account and from your dashboard select the 'Registered' option. Select 'Import'.
The below image will pop up on your screen - just as with products and categories, select the 'Sample Import' option.
Make sure to fill in all of your customer data from your Magento CSV file to the corresponding columns in the Stor sample import Excel sheet. Once this has been done, you just have to save the file and upload the customer data to Stor.
Please kindly note your imported customers passwords will not be imported with your data. Your customers will have to go to the 'Account' page on your shop and select 'Forgot Password'. They will then be sent a reset password link to their email and they can update their password that way.
