Late October saw the move from Magento 1 to Magento 2 for Pretty Personalised, makers of unique hand-made and personalised gift items. Long-standing clients of HummingbirdUK, we were delighted to help them take the next step in their e-commerce journey.
As they were happy with the design of their existing store, this was replicated (with a few little tweaks and polishes) into Magento 2, and all existing integrations with third parties, such as Royal Mail's 'Click and Drop' and importing sales from eBay, whilst making sure that all existing data - customers, products, categories, sales and inventory - were all migrated seamlessly over from the existing store so that customers would experience as uninterrupted a transition as possible.
With downtime kept to a minimum, and taking place at the quietest time of their trading year, orders were flowing through the site a few minutes after it was brought back online, leading to the most seamless transition from Magento 1 to Magento 2 we've achieved so far.
