Migrating Your WordPress Blog to Shopify Made Easy

Are you looking to transfer your WordPress blog to Shopify? This video tutorial will guide you through the process step by step. While WordPress and Shopify are different platforms, with this tutorial, we’ll show you the best way to migrate your blog posts and pages.

Steps to Migrate Your Blog Posts and Pages from WordPress to Shopify

Let’s dive into each step in detail:

1. Export your WordPress Blog Posts or Pages using the “All Export” plugin

To begin the migration process, install the “All Export” plugin on your WordPress site. Once activated, click on “All Export” in the left panel and select “New Export.” From the dropdown menu, choose “Posts” or “Pages,” depending on what you want to migrate. Customize the export file by selecting specific fields you wish to export.

2. Rename the exported file

When downloading the exported file, it’s crucial not to open or edit it. Opening the file in Excel or other programs can break the CSV file structure. If necessary, make adjustments in the Matrixify template Excel XLSX file later. Rename the file to include the words “WordPress” and “Posts” or “Pages.”

3. Upload the file to Matrixify

Go to the Matrixify app in Shopify and navigate to the “Import” section. Upload the exported file by clicking the “Add File” button or dragging and dropping it into the section. The app will analyze the file, ensuring it recognizes it as a WordPress format containing blog posts or pages.

4. Select Import options

In the Import Options section, fill in the “Old server URL” field with your WordPress site’s domain. This URL will be used for image link construction and retrieving content from the WordPress API. Enable the “Dry Run” option to test the migration process without actually importing any data.

5. Download Matrixify generated files

Once the app finishes generating the files, click on the “Download Import Result” button to download your file. This file contains your blog posts or pages, ready for migration.

6. Upload generated images to Shopify Files

Unzip the exported ZIP file, which includes a directory named “Images” containing all the images from your blog posts or pages. Head to your Shopify Admin Files section and upload these images by clicking the “Upload” button. Wait until all the files are uploaded before closing the browser window.

7. Check the Matrixify generated Excel file

If you performed a dry run earlier, now is the time to check the generated Excel file. The file consists of two sheets: “Blog Posts” or “Pages” and “Redirects.” Review the data, apply any necessary edits, and ensure that everything looks correct.

8. Import your Excel file in Matrixify

If everything looks good, it’s time to import the data into Shopify. Upload the generated Excel file in the Matrixify app’s “Import” section. Once uploaded, ensure that the app recognizes the contents as blog posts or pages and start the import process.

9. Check your Import Results file after the import

After the import is complete, you can download the Import Results file and check for any failed items. The Import Comment column will provide details on why a particular item failed. Fix the issue and re-import the corrected rows.
