Switching frequently asked questions

What data can be migrated across?

This depends on what exports you can get from your current provider. At a minimum we can migrate your product information (including product images) across and very often your customer data too.

Won't my product images be lost when I cancel my existing website?

No. Our system automatically gathers all the product images on your current website and places a copy of them onto the ShopWired servers.

Will my products be in categories if I can't get a category export?

Yes. Within your product export you'll most likely have the data about which category(s) each product is in. When you run the product export through our system, we'll automatically create the categories for you.

Is the switching system free?

If you're using our automatic switching system and doing everything yourself then there's no charge. If we have to manually perform the migration for you there maybe a small charge, you can check with our switching experts first by emailing switching@shopwired.co.uk.

Can I use the same domain name?

Yes absolutely! Your site will be on a temporary domain name (e.g. yourstore.myshopwired.com) until you’re ready to go live. Once you are ready then you just need to setup your domain to point at our servers by changing a couple of settings (known as DNS settings).

Will my site go down when I move across?

When you change the DNS settings on your domain to make it show your ShopWired website (instead of your existing one) your domain will either be pointing at your old website or your new one, it will never go down.

Will I lose my Google rankings?

No. Where possible we will always try and retain your product and category URLs so that there isn’t any change.

If this isn’t possible then you can setup, what are known as, '301 redirects' from each of your product and category pages. These automatically forward, to the new page, search engines and visitors to your website that attempt to visit the old page.

Over time, search engines will ‘drop’ the page with the old URL from the rankings and instead list the page with the new URL meaning that you won't suffer any loss in search engine rankings when switching across.
