Step 1: Request free transfer to WooCart
We do the full transfer for you, completely for free. You can request the transfer with this form. You need an active account (can be in trial period).
Image, CSS and JS optimizations start automatically when the transfer is finished.
Step 2: Review your store and fix issues
We'll let you know once the store transfer is done. You can then login to the store from the WooCart dashboard.
Make sure to do a thorough review of everything. Some things might have broken with the transfer. If your store was not up-to-date, now is a good time to do that as well.
When you're happy with the result, move to the next step.
Step 3: Set Domain
We recommend putting your old store into maintenance mode so that new orders do not get lost. Once that is done, go to Settings and click Set Domain.
If there were new orders done since the transfer, let us know, and we'll sync them before you set the domain.
Wait a minute or two after you click Set Domain, and you'll receive nameservers that you need to change at your registrar. Our system catches the change of nameservers as soon as they propagate fully. This step takes from a few minutes to up to 24 hours, depending on your registrar.
Step 4: Copy DNS records
After the nameservers are propagated, you can copy the DNS records. Go to Settings > Domain > View DNS.
Usually, you'll need to copy MX records for email sending/receiving and possible TXT verifications, like for Google Search Console and similar.
DNS records are either at your registrar (GoDaddy, NameCheap, etc.) or at DNS hosting (Cloudflare, etc.). You can also use DNS lookup to copy them.
Step 5: Change Transactional Emails to Personalized
If you're using WooCart's transactional emails, make sure to change the configuration from Shared to Personalized.
Step 6: Test the store and emails
Do another thorough test of the store and make sure to test the sending and receiving of emails.
After a few pageviews, the images also automatically start to be served from CDN.
Your store now runs completely from WooCart, and you're getting all the benefits of the platform! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us.
