HELP!!! Need to update to Magento 2 but being told my package wont!

Hi my name is Diane , I need to update my site fast - I dont have a trusted web developer any more after he left me in the lurch. my current template is ma_ Zerian. I have been told that I can't just upgrade to magento 2, merging won't be easy, pluggins aren't available, and to build again, yet I have spent 2 years adding content to this website - please assure me that I dont have to start again, and it is possible using the data I already have? www.shocfurniture.co.uk

Hi @diane_white,

 

Don't worry, it is totally possible to upgrade your website from Magento 1 to Magento 2 without losing any current data. There are several ways to perform the store migration: 

 

1. Using Magento System Upgrade 

You can use Magento System Upgrade to upgrade your store from M1 to M2. If you decide to follow this method, make sure that you're truly confident with your technical skills and Magento knowledge. The reason is that you have to dive deep into Magento database structure and there are chances to face unexpected errors throughout the process. 

 

Another option that you can use to update your store to the latest version is using Magento Command-Line Upgrade. Please follow the instructions carefully! 

 

2. Using an automated migration tool

It is also possible for you to use an automated migration tool. All your data including products, orders, customers, customer passwords, SEO URLs etc. will be transferred automatically, quickly and accurately to your new store. 

 

3. Hiring a developer 

There are many Magento certified experts available in this community. You can refer to this blog for more information. 

 

Let me know if you need further assistance. Hope it helps!

Hi

I would suggest you use an automated service. It's fast and secure. No risk involved. The market's full of these tools, so you are free to choose the one you like the most. As far as I know, some of them even offer a free demo. It's a great opportunity to try out the tool. My personal preference is Cart2Cart, did a bunch of migrations with them. The guys are real pros and do the job quickly
