Migrate from Legacy Subscription Platforms (Recharge Legacy, Bold V1)
Migrating from these Legacy Providers to Loop is a smooth and simple two-step process. Our expert migration team is here to help during every step of the process.
|Recharge Legacy||Migrating from Recharge Legacy is straightforward and the linked guide details the whole process. Making use of the Export Functionality in the app we can get the required data directly from the app itself.|
|Bold V1||Migrating from Bold V1 is also simple as the migration export is provided by the Bold Migrations team. The linked guide will walk you through the exact steps in greater detail.|
Migrate from Native Shopify Platforms (Appstle, Skio ...)
Migrating from Native Shopify Platforms is easier and faster as the Payment Details are already present in Shopify's backend and can be accessed by Loop Team using API calls. We only need to focus on obtaining the subscription data export from these platforms.
If you’re already on a Native Shopify Subscription app there is no need to migrate the payment data since it’s already present in Shopify itself
Migrate from Non-Shopify platforms
When migrating from platforms like WooCommerce, Bigcommerce etc, we need to also migrate the customer details from said platform to Shopify. Each platform has its own way of providing an export of the customer details and is covered in guides linked in the table below. This customer data is then imported to Shopify.
Listed below are the three steps in the order
