Migration to Magento 2 – New store launch:

Moving an old store to Magento 2 is like opening it again, but with more knowledge, better tools, and more qualified customers. You quickly experience far better results from selling the exact same products.

Alekseon makes the transition smooth and comfortable. You can keep everything you care about from your old store, and from day one, you'll take advantage of high-level solutions used by many of the world's greatest fashion brands.

A better store is the opportunity to sell better — it's that simple. With Alekseon, it is also easy to launch.

Moving the store to Magento 2 – step by step


In this phase, we analyze the entire source code of the existing store. We also discuss the most important functionalities of the store for our client. At this stage, we assess all existing integrations and modules to find out if they will be needed on Magento 2.

The next stage is to collect all existing web addresses on the store (products, categories, CMS pages) to plan a list of redirects. This is crucial during the migration so as not to lose the store’s position on Google.

Finally, we prepare documentation based on which our programmers and project managers can implement the project to achieve the most effective results.


Each new client relationship begins with a Discovery Phase. This distinguishes us from other companies that often approach the implementation of the project “on the go”. Our process prevents misunderstandings and eliminates potential problems at the implementation stage.

The Discovery Phase consists of anywhere from a few to dozens of hours of conversation with the team members managing the current store to understand every aspect of its current operation. We listen to the problems, but also about the good sides of the current store to prepare a tailor-made solution.

We have a clearly defined process, perfected over the years, thanks to which we know which questions to ask, which elements to look deeper into and what to solve immediately at the stage of the preparatory phase.

At the end of the Discovery Phase, our client receives documentation that allows them to successfully complete the transition onto Magento 2.


At this stage, we prepare a test server for our client so that they can see the results of our work as soon as possible.

Throughout implementation, we use the SCRUM method, which means that our client can influence any changes and modify the existing backlog within the budget while building a new website.

At this stage, we also transfer existing customer data and orders to the new store.


We have a team of manual testers who, with the help of pre-defined scenarios, test the store fully to make sure that everything works properly.

We are one of the only ecommerce agencies who execute automated tests for the purchasing path. We test the test page itself every night to make sure that new modifications and fixes do not interfere with the most important functionality on the website: the purchasing process.


Finally, it's time to implement the new version of the website. We try to do this in a way that keeps the previous platform available, which is important for processing possible returns that are requested during the migration and provides us with a reference for analyzing any possible issues with the new version.


For the period of 3 months after the implementation is finished, we operate on a warranty basis. This means that when an implementation that was described in the documentation does not work, it is repaired by our team free of charge.

For us, each action we take is an ongoing partnership, meaning that each patch/bug is investigated and fixed by us.


For Alekseon, the store launch is never the end of the adventure. This is where our greatest competitive advantage begins. With us, the client receives a 24/7 monitoring system.

We monitor not only the operation of the store itself, but also server logs, application logs, servers themselves, memory, and processor usage. This allows us to know when something is not working on the website even before our clients do.
