Upgrading to The Future of Ecommerce Just Got a Lot Easier: Part 2

Upgrading to The Future of Ecommerce Just Got a Lot Easier: Part 2

In May, I announced we were making upgrading to Shopify Plus a whole lot easier for merchants using Magento. 

Many, MANY amazing brands took that opportunity and have been enjoying the future of commerce ever since, and we couldn’t be happier to support them.

But while we’re excited about the results of that effort, we realized we made a mistake.

Since the announcement I’ve had the opportunity to talk to a lot of fantastic merchants who are upgrading from Magento to Shopify Plus and are pumped about the switch.

I’ve also spoken with owners, CEOs, and VP’s of ecommerce who read the same announcement and were excited about what Shopify Plus could mean for their businesses. However, they were disappointed when they realized they could not migrate as easily because they were on a different platform. 

This was a huge miss on our part.

Our Mission is to Make Commerce Better

For high-growth, high-volume merchants of all kinds; not just those on Magento.

We want merchants looking to grow and thrive in today’s complex, dynamic commerce industry to have the best technology, resources, and partners possible. We missed because we limited the opportunity to upgrade and therefore limited the potential of so many great companies.

That’s why I’m excited to announce the launch of the “Upgrade to the future of ecommerce: Part 2”

Effective today we are making it a whole lot easier for customers using BigCommerce, Volusion, or MOZU to upgrade to Shopify Plus.

Join Shopify Plus and we’ll cover up to six months of your subscription fees in addition to the costs required to migrate your customer data. (some conditions apply - see landing page for details. )

"Switching to Shopify Plus was the best decision we ever made. It's the best ecommerce platform I've ever seen. Once I saw the light and how everyone was trying to mimic Shopify the choice was obvious. The team at Shopify is really innovative and always coming up with insanely cool updates."
