Migrate from Magento 2 to BigCommerce

This condensed, 43-page guide gives you ultimate confidence to achieve success in a migration.

Get the facts, in short order—43 pages of short.

The story

We've put in countless hours comparing 112 features on Adobe Commerce (Magento 2) and BigCommerce, and the first result was a whopping 180-page ebook. We thought, 'Why give you all the details when we can also give you a way to avoid them?' So, for those who don't have time for epic sagas, we proudly present this Quickstart version.

In this shorter, 21-page comparison, we've managed to squeeze those 112 features in like they're trying to fit into skinny jeans after Thanksgiving dinner. The rest? Well, it's like a bonus feature on a DVD. We've included our trusty SwiftOtter Migration Methodology and a 7-page feature discovery document for your reading pleasure.

And the best part? You don't need to spend your life savings on a platform discovery process. We've basically given you the CliffsNotes version for free. That's hospitality (our #1 core value) at it's finest.

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) has gained tremendous popularity with merchants in recent times. Merchants are looking for a stable website that is highly performance with minimal maintenance costs. SaaS generally delivers on these promises.

BigCommerce is a frontrunner in the battle of platforms. It is squarely positioned between traditional, less-flexible, locked-down SaaS platforms and the high TCO, expensive-to-maintain open-source systems. BigCommerce's idea is "Open SaaS". Developers can tap into their API to create custom experiences or leverage the already-built systems that BigCommerce has already created.

Why do you ask for my email?

Platform discoveries often cost $10,000 or more. A significant part of this is mapping business requirements to native support. This book puts that process into concrete terms.

Of course, we can help you make this decision as we have built an even more condensed version of this document.

As you can see with this guidebook, SwiftOtter believes in education and enablement (we have also built a significant training practice). Getting into a full-site migration may seem scary.

But with us at SwiftOtter, it's not. We will walk you through the process you will read about in this quickstart guide.

  • We learn the key points of your needs and give you a rough order of magnitude for cost and timeline.
  • We enter a paid discovery to understand what needs to be built: the scope.
  • Once we agree on the scope (price), we begin work.
  • We involve you through the development process to ensure it's exactly as you need.
