How long will it take?

Shopify Read

Very Fast 10+ entities per second.

Although Shopify throttles API calls to 2/second they allow retrieval of up to 250 entities per call so the process is only slowed by large images attached onto products.

Magento Write

Very Slow ~1 product/sec with images (simple product only), ~2 customers or orders/sec.

Magento API is very slow, combined with their odd design decision to create every variant as a separate product means that for example 1000 products with colour and size variants may become a 16,000 product upload into Magento, an over 4 hour process.
Server specifications seem to make very little impact on the API speed.
For reference a recent upload to a 4Gb RAM, 2 Core Virtual Machine took 8 hours for:
  • 1500 customers
  • 3500 addresses
  • 500 products
  • 1200 variants
  • 1000 images
  • 1100 orders

$39Unlimited data 3 reads and writes.
(valid for 28 days from date of purchase)
Any combination of full reads or updates allowed including changing destination systems.
Error Logging and Data Cleansing
EcomExodus fixes then reports on many validation errors when reading and writing your data, allowing you to make a choice to repair the data or accept the automated fixes (where possible).
Having 3 reads and writes allows you to repair those duplicate SKU's and incorrect email addresses and re-do your transfer.

Get updated data?

If you are transferring a large site you can leave your source site running, read and write the bulk of the data to the destination then get any added or updated products, customers or orders by choosing "Get New Or Updated Entities Since Last Read" from the Shopify read tab.

NOTE: EcomExodus has a simple product arrangement, you pay for reads and writes either full or partial. $39 3 reads, 3 writes.

What is transferred?

Shopify Data Entity Maps to Magento Notes
Product Variants If a product has only the default variant in Shopify then it is created as a "Simple" product in Magento. If a product has variants then the top level product is created as a "Configurable" product in magento and all variant products are linked under it as "Simple" products.
Product Options  
Product Images  
Product Images for Variants  
Product Inventory  
Product Categories Shopify uses collections rather than a hierarchical category system, hence when transferred to Magento all categories will be root categories.
Product Category Images Shopify does not support images for it's collections.
Product Reviews Unfortunately Shopify doesn't support reviews out of the box and their app or others which do aren't supported by the API. Hopefully the add-on in Shopify will have a documented extraction method.
Product Vendors  
Customer Addresses  
Customer Passwords Shopify does not include the password information in their customer API calls.
