Shopify to Akeneo Catalog Migration Tool



The Shopify to Akeneo Catalog Migration Tool helps Shopify store owners transfer all their catalog into Akeneo PIM, so they can both improve and scale eCommerce catalog management efforts. Most store owners manage catalog directly in Shopify which is typically a manual, time-consuming, multi-step, and disconnected process, which involves multiple spreadsheets and image repositories. Managing your catalog in a single PIM system is the way to go.  It offers flexibility and productivity features to allow store owners to grow product and attribute counts without having to hire more people. Akeneo PIM is the ideal PIM solution and companion for Shopify store owners that want to scale their online business.

Before store owners can use Akeneo PIM, they must migrate their entire product catalog accurately into the PIM. This involves transferring all Shopify catalog structures (attributes, collections, metafields, options, etc), configuring additional catalog structures in PIM (families, variant families, association types, channels, locale, etc.), and transferring product and variant level data, options fields, images, and videos. 

This migration involves Shopify data and digital asset extraction, manual transformation, and multi-step loading into the Akeneo PIM system. Multiple rounds of migration and configuration testing are typical in such projects in order to validate data and ensure successful outcomes. Store owners should be intimately familiar with both tool features, and expect to spend a fair amount of time doing this migration, particularly in case of large catalogs. In some cases, data migrations can stall projects indefinitely and affect the launch of your digital growth initiatives.

With StrikeTru’s Shopify to Akeneo Catalog Migration Tool, store owners can automate this complex migration with a few simple clicks! This one-and-only tool in the market today takes the cost and complexity out of the data migration process through end-to-end automation. 

Once you start using Akeneo PIM to manage eCommerce catalog, we encourage daily synchronization of your product catalog changes from Akeneo PIM into Shopify through our Akeneo PIM Connector for Shopify. You can manage catalog data in the PIM using its powerful data management features, ensuring all product content changes will be reflected in Shopify automatically.
