Title: thinking about switching from shopify
Post by: Jolyon_Jaramillo on September 20, 2020, 01:34:10 am
Hey guys, as a non technical person, i literally dont know much about computers or the internet just the bare minimum (how to log in and stuff) and i would like to know if it is possible to migrate a website from Shopify to virtuemart.  Would it be a complex process for a 'newbie' and someone who does not have a huge budget?

Can someone recomened some good videos or somebody that can do it for me

Export products from shopify as XML feed for Google Merchant Centre
Import Products, Categories, Customfields, Manufacturers from XML with this: https://www.minijoomla.org/extensions/virtuemart-extensions/import-produktu-pro-virtuemart

If you don't have basic knowledge of Joomla, and PHP then I don't recommend. 
VMart is excellent component but is not for people without any basic knowledge. Do some localhost Joomla, VirteMart experiments, get familiar with environments then give it a try. 

When trouble came is it mostly, do it yourself and basic PHP is useful to know.
