MIgration from Prestashop to Magento. Questions and concerns.

Hello all forum members :)

I wanted to consult with you about the migration process from Prestashop to Magento. To be able to use all the advantages that magento has to offer.

I suppose, the migration process is not too hard, but maybe I’m mistaking. Basically what we’ll need to do is export all the product’s from Prestashop and adapt the CSV fields to magento (once the attributes and stuff are created) and import them. Correct?

One more thing, what worries me quite a bit, what about SEO ? The store (with Prestashop) has been on the market for years and gained quite a good SEO positions and I’m very concern about loosing those once Prestashop is removed from the server and Magento implemented. How should I approach this issue? What you can suggest? Any previous experiences with this kind of migrations?

Thanks guys, any help from any forum member will be appreciated!

Hey Artur

As for the migration then you are exactly right when it comes to your inventory. It’s a case of exporting your inventory into a spreadsheet and then mapping that data into an import that Magento can use.

The complicated part is of course going to be the SEO question, which I can’t really advise on, hopefully one of our other members is better equipped to help. Chances are your product page URLs are going to change which is going to have the impact on your page SEO.

Hope that helps a little.
