PrestaShop is the most widely used e-commerce application in Spain and much of Europe. It is the preferred platform in France, Italy and Poland, among others.

It is a very long-lived application, with more than 15 years of life. It has been growing year after year to become the sector’s leader. This growth is due to its ease of use and its power, as it includes by default a considerable amount of functionalities to cover most of the needs of any online sales business.

In addition, it has a very large and active community of developers, who have developed thousands of additional modules and high quality design templates.

On top of that, it is the most search engine optimisable application, which makes it the preferred choice for many agencies to implement projects that want to achieve great results. Especially now with version 8, which is much faster than previous versions.

One of these reasons is probably what makes you decide to switch from your current e-commerce application or older version of PrestaShop to PrestaShop 8. IDX helps you with this complex process of migrating to PrestaShop, we have extensive experience in it, we have been doing migrations for over 15 years.

We can help you with the creation of the online shop, its design and optimisation and with the migration of all the data from your old shop.

What do we offer you in the PrestaShop shop migration service?

Shop Creation

Shop creation

As PrestaShop experts since 2007, we create a shop and give you access to see the progress of the work process. We configure everything you need inside the virtual shop and we test it. When we deliver it to you, all you have to do is open it and start marketing and selling.

Prestashop Template Design

Template design

You can select one of the templates we work with for us to customise, or you can opt for us to make a completely bespoke design for your shop, which will have a higher cost. We follow all your instructions so that the design is the way you need it to achieve your goals.

Additional Modules

Additional modules

If your PrestaShop shop needs extra modules with special functionalities, we will need you to detail them and we will look for the right modules. We will send you links to demos so you can check if they are what you are looking for. If we don’t find any modules, we will offer you a custom development.

Data Migration

Data migration

When you approve the shop we have created, we will start the process of migrating information from your current shop. Part of the process will require your shop to remain in maintenance, we will try to keep the downtime as short as possible. We will migrate the catalogue (categories, products, brands, etc.), along with your customers and their respective addresses and to finalise the orders. No data will be lost.

Prestashop Personalised Training

Personalised training

We can help your employees learn how to use PrestaShop, so they can be productive immediately. You can hire a customised training. PrestaShop is intuitive, but learning it yourself can take a while if you don’t have the support of someone who knows how to use the platform very well. It will be trial and error many times, a bad option to be productive. We can take care of training your employees.

Seo Optimisation

SEO Optimisation

Google doesn’t like major changes to websites, and a migration is one of those changes. It could alter the search results for your ranking. Once the shop is up and running, it is a good idea to carry out a complete SEO audit, to analyse if there are things to correct in terms of SEO and improvements to implement to increase the rankings or if Google has penalised the project.

The types of shop migration to PrestaShop that we can do are:

Migration From PrestaShop Old Version To PrestaShop 8

Migration to PrestaShop 8 from an older PrestaShop version

If you currently have a shop created with PrestaShop, but you are outdated on an old version, we can take care of moving it to the latest version available. We can migrate to PrestaShop 8 from any version. Older versions such as PrestaShop 1.7 or 1.6 are the most common nowadays and are the easiest, but we can also migrate shops from much older versions, although it may take a little longer because it can give some problems. But we make sure that you have all your data without losing anything. By migrating to PrestaShop 8, you will get a faster loading speed in your shop, by using PHP 8. Moreover, by using PHP 8, you will also have a more secure shop, as both PrestaShop 8 and PHP 8, have fixed some vulnerabilities detected in previous versions.

Migration From Standard Or Open Source E Commerce Application

Migration to PrestaShop from standard or open source e-commerce application

If you are using a standard or open source online shop software for your shop, we will usually have no problem migrating your shop data to PrestaShop. We will migrate the entire catalogue (categories, products, attributes and features, brands, etc.), also the customers (including their addresses and probably their passwords) and to complete the job, the orders. Using various types of information migration tools, we will do the whole process, which can be different depending on the software you use in your shop. Each e-commerce application has its own complexity when it comes to migrating your data to PrestaShop. Extensions, modules or plugins, non-standard you use, can alter the data and complicate the work or make it impossible.

Migration From Proprietary E Commerce Applications

Migration from proprietary e-commerce applications

If you have a custom-built shop with a development framework or have contracted a proprietary closed source application, the migration may not be possible in its entirety or it may be more complicated. It may be more complex, but not impossible. We will have to study your specific case, so we will need information and access to your shop. We will have to see what information can be exported from your application. Generally, in these cases, it is normal to be able to migrate the catalogue and customers, but not the orders. To migrate orders, you would have to make quite complicated and expensive custom developments that would take quite a long time. Once we have all the information after our analysis of your platform, we will have a clear idea of the process we need to follow to do the job and we can prepare a customised proposal.

Frequently asked questions

What does Innovadeluxe do and what doesn’t it do in Migration processes?

What we do:

  • We install a new shop with the latest version of PrestaShop.
  • We install the template and the necessary modules.
  • We configure the installed modules.
  • We make a previous customised design if the client has contracted it.
  • We configure the base template and we make the customised design or we adapt the predefined design.
  • We migrate all the data from the old shop. Customers, catalogue and orders (whenever possible).

What we do NOT do:

  • We do not migrate customer passwords, unless it is a cart for which we have already made a specific development.
  • We do not migrate orders, if the old cart is proprietary or custom developed.
  • We do not develop custom functionalities unless the client has asked us to do so before contracting and they have been budgeted.
  • We do not fix modules or template, if the migration is from an old version of PrestaShop, the customer must provide versions compatible with PrestaShop 8.
  • We do not work for free if the hours contracted by the client have been exhausted and does not want to hire more.

Any of the above items, if they are covered by Innovadeluxe, are budgeted separately. By default they are not included in the base price to update your shop.

When will my PrestaShop migration be ready?

The time it takes to do this kind of work depends on many factors and it is impossible to give you an exact timeframe. It will depend on whether the migration to PrestaShop 8 is done from an older version of PrestaShop, from another cart that is open source or from a custom developed or proprietary cart. Each type of PrestaShop migration is different.

In addition, it will depend on whether you have to make custom developments for specific business functionalities or if the design is bespoke or based on a template.

Communication with the customer must also be taken into account. If communication is fluid and the client is available to help us resolve any doubts that arise, the work will be done faster, but if, on the other hand, the client takes longer to respond, the migration to PrestaShop will take longer.

You don’t really need to worry about how long it takes, as your current shop will be open almost all the time. Only at the end of the process, it will be closed for a few hours, while we change the new shop for the old one.

Generally, the time from start to finish, if there is no custom development or custom design, is between 3 weeks and a month. It also depends on the workload we have at any given time, as we usually work on several projects at the same time.

What are the advantages of migrating to PrestaShop 8?

There are many advantages to migrating to PrestaShop 8. But there are two fundamental ones, which are the ones we are going to focus on. The loading speed and security.

PrestaShop 8 uses PHP 8, so it supports the latest version of PHP. So in addition to gaining loading speed because the PrestaShop code is much more optimised, you also gain loading speed because PHP is also much faster to serve the content to the browser. As loading speed is a key factor for Google, this will improve your ranking.

PHP and PrestaShop take a parallel line in their procedure when it comes to security. With PHP 8 you will have fewer vulnerabilities in the shop’s code, as it fixes vulnerabilities detected in previous versions. With PrestaShop it is the same, they have improved their way of programming the application with the use of Symphony Framework and they have corrected some small vulnerabilities that the previous versions had. Now after migrating to PrestaShop 8, it is more difficult for hackers to exploit any vulnerability in the shop.
