If you want to sync Magento (1 or 2) and Shopify store, you can easily integrate these two with SyncSpider iPaas solution.
All you have to do is to go through the 4-step procedure:
Magento is a popular eCommerce platform that uses open-source technologies and allows users (sellers) to create, change, or update their online stores.
Shopify is a cloud-based eCommerce platform with a user-friendly interface, making it very suitable for beginners.
Both of the eCommerce platforms are among the top 5 eCommerce platforms, and they both have advantages and disadvantages.
Depending on the budget, scale of business, target market, and other factors, users will opt for one of these two. Of course, they are not the only platforms available for eCommerce, and therefore the choice might become even more challenging.
According to the latest statistical data, Magento takes 2.32% of the world’s eCommerce market share, and it is one of the top 10 eCommerce platforms globally.
It is the most frequently used shop software in the UK eCommerce, 25% of the top 500 online shops by net sales in 2020 in the UK, It is also in first place in Germany (19%), and it’s among the top 5 in the USA.
Though Magento may seem a bit complicated for those not familiar with eCommerce platforms, it offers vast possibilities to the users, which is why it’s one of the most popular platforms for creating brands.
There are several differences between Magento and Shopify.
If you want to integrate Shopify with any other app, or eCommerce market, by using SyncSpider, you have two options for that, and they both begin by creating a SyncSpider account.
Just as with Shopify integration, the primary step in the integrating process is opening a SyncSpider account. After that, Magento users can connect Magento with SyncSpider and, through it, connect to any other app from the list.
Magento has two versions, Magento 1 and Magento 2.
Since Magento 1 had its last update in 2018, and since June 2020 is no longer officially supported, and there are still more than 140.000 websites using Magento 1.9, it might be helpful to migrate to Magento 2, Shopify, or any other eCommerce platform.
Magento 1 is on the list of available integrations on SyncSpider, which means you will be able to migrate your data once the SyncSpider is connected to your Magento 1 store. Integration is done through Magento 1 extension zip file, which is unpacked locally and copied to the Magento root directory. The whole procedure is described in the Help article on our site.
Magento 2 integration has a similar path as Magento 1. However, the user will be asked for the URL address of the Magento 2 shop at the very beginning. That there are two options for the integration process.
The first one is through the downloading and pasting method, and the other is by installing using a composer. The detailed procedure is described in the Help article on our site.
Shopify users typically search for the solution for integration of their Shopify store with WordPress, QuickBooks, Amazon, Etsy, Xero, and Klaviyo.
While Magento users mostly ask for integration with WordPress, and some of the payment getaway options or shipping software.
But if your business needs require some unique and customized solution, SyncSpider can provide you with that on a request. We offer more than 350 integrations, and if an app you want to integrate with your Shopify store is not on the list, you can always reach out to our support and ask for it.
Though it’s not common to use Magento and Shopify simultaneously, there are cases when Magento Shopify integration is necessary. And that typically happens when the users want to migrate data from one source to another (for various reasons).
The migrating process can be exhausting, primarily if it encompasses much data. Therefore, the best way is to implement an integration tool that enables automated migration from source to target without manual input.
It provides an easier and faster solution and lowers the chance of mistakes. And if you want to explore new possibilities, you can check out the top 5 online platforms for eCommerce in 2022 and make a smart decision.
