There are three modes of transfer that migrate data from your Magento 1 store to Magento 2.

Moving to Magento
Ni2rC7QIPaul is the Founder of Audited and is also a Director of GPMD. Paul has been working in ecommerce and digital marketing for over 9 years and has worked in-house, for agencies and as a consultant. Paul works almost exclusively with Magento and has worked with over 100 merchants over the last few years.

Paul, as I understand, you have been working in eCommerce for over 9 years, and I believe you have vast experience in working with different platforms. Why have you decided to work with Magento? What’s your reason for singling the platform out from similar eCommerce solutions? 

To be honest, the main reason is that the majority of my experience has been in working with the Magento platform. I’ve worked with other platforms too (Oracle products, Demandware, Shopify, WooCommerce, bespoke solutions etc), but 99% of the merchants I’ve worked with have used Magento.

I actually only started working with Magento in 2010, after working mainly with Actinic previously, when I joined GPMD (the first time around). Since then, my knowledge of the platform has developed a lot and I made the decision to specialize.

That said, I do also think it’s the best platform for the majority of retailers too – purely because it’s more maintainable and scalable than most solutions. Read More
