Result

Our experienced Magento developers at ValueCoders solved the issues ingeniously. We delivered a fully functional Magento eCommerce website from OScommerce. We made a complete revamp of the website in order to make it more user friendly, attractive and powerful. Client also met his target by achieving more user engagement and conversions.

Business Situation

Our client is a renowned name in the apparel industry of USA. They offer a huge range of product in their niche. Their website was earlier made in OScommerce and it was not able to provide all the functionalities they required. Hence they planned to migrate the e-store to Magento. That’s why they hired ValueCoders at the first place. Moreover, they wanted to add a few functionalities along with the migration process.

When they hired us, we were asked to meet the following requirements-

  • Website Migration from OScommerce to Magento.
  • Addition of product customization tools.
  • Providing with a provision of custom invoicing.

When executing the project, we came across many challenges. Here are to name a few:

  • Old database to new database migration in different formats and modules.
  • Conflict with Magento default JS while making product customization tools.

Our experienced Magento developers at ValueCoders solved the issues ingeniously. As OScommerce database had less number of attributes compared to Magento, they applied custom queries for database importing without using CSV files. Moreover, they did major changes in core Magento JavaScript in order to build interactive product customization tools.

How We Did It

Our osCommerce to Magento migration process involved the following steps-

  • First we fetched the complete data from the old site.
  • Added custom queries for database importing.
  • Then migrated the old database from server to into Magento site.
  • Installed the available Magento plugins as per the requirement.
  • For the rest we developed custom plugins as per client needs.
