[resolved] Switch from Jigoshop to Woocmmerce (3 posts)

    I would like to switch from Jigoshop to WooCommerce.

    I could not install Woocommerce due to some conflict with Jigoshop database, but I cannot uninstall Jigoshop firts, since I have data already in Jigoshop.

    Any suggestions, guidelines on switching with the least pain ? Is there a program to copy product data from Jigoshop to Woocommerce, completely, not just some.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    First up, if its a live site you'd be wise to test this elsewhere. If you can duplicate your install/DB and do a test run that would be ideal.

    JS will need disabling before you install WC. After activation, some of the data will be in the correct format, but some things (variations) will be missing.

    You can either manually update products at that point or use something like http://www.woothemes.com/extension/jigoshop-to-woocommerce-converter/

    Settings etc are covered in this guide I googled http://shuttlex.demon.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/Migrating-from-Jigoshop-to-WooCommerce.pdf

    Remember you may also need to do a bit of theming, see: http://wcdocs.woothemes.com/codex/third-party-custom-theme-compatibility/

    Good luck,
    Mike
