Migrate From Multiple BigCommerce Stores into a Multi-Storefront (MSF):

Migrating data from multiple BigCommerce stores into one Multi-Storefront (MSF) account is a tedious & expensive process that can be disruptive. We offer a BigCommerce Multi-Storefront Migration service to accelerate your adoption of MSF capabilities. The service uses pre-existing tools to automate the migration of products, categories, prices, inventory, themes, landing pages, blog posts, and other content from multiple stores into a single MSF store.

Our solution combines the power of a PIM tool and existing data connectors to reduce the cost and complexity inherent in these migrations. For more ambitious enterprises, this migration service can be converted into a long-term solution that can help them leapfrog their data management and eCommerce capabilities and future proof their business.


Migrate From Other Platforms to BigCommerce Store:

We work with a variety of legacy ERP and other enterprise systems, digital asset management and cloud storage systems, and eCommerce platforms. We ensure your product attributes and categories, products and variants, digital assets and URLs, price and inventory data, SEO data, customer data, order history, 3rd party integrations, workflows, and more are migrated from your current systems into BigCommerce with no data loss.

We profile existing data, discuss potential data management improvements, and align your data with BigCommerce data structures. We resolve data quality issues and migrate clean data into BigCommerce. We create a detailed Bigcommerce migration design to guide the iterative data migration effort and provide a detailed report after data is migrated.

Our data services team can also help onboard product data from your suppliers into your digital platforms (eCommerce, ERP, PIM, DAM, etc.). Our data service offerings include product taxonomy and attribute schema definitions, product data collection, cleansing, normalization, enrichment, categorization, and onboarding into digital platforms.

Migrate from BigCommerce Store Version V2 to V3

BigCommerce released a new API version (V3) in 2016. The redesign of the product data model to align it with product data models in other enterprise systems was one of the biggest reasons for this upgrade. Another reason was to simplify developer concerns that it took too many APIs to create a product in BigCommerce and the V2 product data model was difficult to sync with other 3rd party systems. Since the release, BigCommerce has been building out V3 counterparts for all V2 resources. However, All new API resources released over the last few years — features like Cart API, Payments API, and Widgets — are exclusively available in V3. 

Triggers To Migrate From BigCommerce V2 to V3
  • Modernizing Tech Stack: If you are implementing or replatforming enterprise IT systems (including ERP, OMS, PIM, DAM, etc.) and looking to integrate those with your BigCommerce store, you should consider migrating your BigCommerce stores from V2 to V3 in order to avoid building integrations to V2 first, and then to V3 again. Integrations can be complex and expensive.

  • Migrating to Multi-Storefront (MSF): If you want to move away from multiple BigCommerce stores to a Multi-Storefront, you must migrate from V2 to V3 as an MSF store requires you to be on V3.

  • Adding Additional Store(s): If you are currently on one or more V2 stores and want to simply add a new BigCommerce store, the new store will be available in V3 only. The BigCommerce team might make exceptions in some cases to allow new V2 stores, but don’t bank on it. If you choose to operate both old V2 and new V3 stores (i.e. mixed model), it will lead to added cost and complexity in the areas of eCommerce operations management, product content management, employee experiences, training and enablement, integrations, etc.

  • Better Features: Faster APIs, Metafield availability, improved product modeling (e.g. attach options and modifiers directly to products), newer functionality, etc. If you’re looking to compete on the basis of best tools and features, you should move to V3 to take advantage of its current and future capabilities.

Key Changes in BigCommerce V3
  • Redesigned product data model that makes it easier to conceptualize and create products by avoiding multi-screen workflows

  • Modernizing Tech Stack: If you are implementing or replatforming enterprise IT systems (including ERP, OMS, PIM, DAM, etc.) and looking to integrate those with your BigCommerce store, you should consider migrating your BigCommerce stores from V2 to V3 in order to avoid building integrations to V2 first, and then to V3 again. Integrations can be complex and expensive.

  • Introduction of explicit product variants or SKUs, and variant level attribute tracking (as opposed to attribute tracking relative to the parent product via rules)

  • Options and modifiers are attached directly to a product, as opposed to attaching them via an option set that was shared across many products. This gives users more granular control over editing product choices across individual products

  • Fewer API calls and inclusion of subresources within a request, making it easier for developers to work with BigCommerce and sync products with other systems

  • API-accessible metafields that allow additional custom data to be managed for Brands, Categories, Products and Variants

  • More developer control over paginating V3 resources

Challenges When Migrating From V2 to V3

If your BigCommerce product catalog contains product options (i.e. variants), you must redo your product options setup when migrating from V2 to V3. The more complex your product options setup is, the more involved the migration will be. Here are some specific challenges:

  • Even in the simplest scenarios, the process involves multiple manual and specific steps. There is no easy way to do it

  • V3 options are no longer tied to option sets. Although V3 has shared options, there is currently no way to apply them to multiple products at once when rebuilding your product options

  • Due to the inherent flexibility in V2 options management, different customers set up product options very differently. When migrating to V3, product options must be separated into options and modifiers. This requires analysis and rebuilding effort. In V2, you could create SKUs for each combination of options and modifiers. In V3, you can create SKUs for combination of option values. So during a migration to V3, you must decide how to rebuild those SKUs

  • In V2, it was possible to create a SKU with a subset of product options only. In V3, a variant needs to be created for every combination of option values

  • A migration is also an opportunity to make improvements such as consolidating multiple options into fewer options. This requires some data profiling and decisioning on which options to rebuild and how

  • In addition to the above, there may potentially be other considerations when migrating product options

For all the reasons mentioned above, it is unlikely that there will be a completely automated solution for this migration. Your options include spending a lot of time and effort doing this yourself or paying your agency or integrator to do it. This is where StrikeTru comes in. We provide a couple of streamlined migration solutions that leverage pre-existing data sync technology components to perform this complex migration quicker and faster than others can. 

BigCommerce V2-V3 Migration App – Extract, transform, and load your V2 product options as V3 compatible product options. This app will be available in the BigCommerce Apps marketplace in early Aug 2022, and will provide a guided, self-service migration experience for the store owner.

BigCommerce V2-V3 Migration Service – Extract, analyze, and transform your V2 data at scale, and load it into an Akeneo PIM tool. Audit and enrich your product data in PIM before migrating it back automatically into your store in V3 formats.
Our BigCommerce specialists can perform this complex product catalog upgrade for your store without any data loss and address any incompatibility issues between these two versions. They can also help assess and improve your data structures and quality, and tackle any unforeseen data challenges during the migration. Call us today to learn more about this BigCommerce V2-V3 migration service!

Highlight:

StrikeTru Helped Richmond Supply migrate from Magento to a BigCommerce store that was designed to handle custom processing of a large catalog of products. Daily product, price, and availability updates were automated to reduce friction in the product selection and checkout processes. Product and image data gaps were plugged at scale to improve data quality, and 3rd party apps were installed to help provide a great customer experience.

PIM & DAM Tools

We offer PIM (product information management) and DAM (digital asset management) tools and connectors that can significantly enhance your BigCommerce store performance. Check out our connectors which help you transfer data between different platforms to make your life easier.

One of those connectors is our Akeneo PIM connector for BigCommerce, a robust app that links your Akeneo PIM tool with your BigCommerce store to sync product data. This is easy to install, user-friendly, single-click app that lets you manage your entire product catalog (products, product variations, categories, options, custom attributes, images and videos, SEO information) in PIM, and then sync that data to your BigCommerce store(s) effortlessly saving you time and money.
