This is no light undertaking. eCommerce platform migrations are an exceptionally complex and technical development project that needs to be handled by proven experts specific to this type of project. While the ROI on migrating is pretty obvious and plain to see, the risks are much less understood. Mishandling the process could ruin the functionality of your website, upend the way your store looks, or even cause you to lose all of your hard-earned rankings in Google. Once you reach a certain size of business, that business is putting food on someone's table and failure can have very catastrophic implications.
When tactical-edgearms.com realized that it was time to make the switch to a more robust eCommerce platform such as BigCommerce, they took that first step by contacting MAK Digital, vetting our prior experience with comprehensive platform and data migrations as a sure fit. We fully migrated tactical-edgearms.com's data as well as completely redesigned their site for a more modern and more user-friendly and mobile-friendly design.
Our client, No Whey Chocolate, recently reached out to MAK Digital, determined to migrate off of the Volusion platform.
After discussing their options with our development team, they settled on BigCommerce as their new platform of choice. We coordinated the data migration of products, customers, and orders to BigCommerce.
In the vast majority of cases, clients will capitalize on the efficiencies of re-imagining their site design during the migration. In the case of Nowheychocolate, however, they wanted to make sure that they could keep the design their customers were already familiar with when moving onto the new system.
No Whey Chocolate’s existing design was already created and built by MAK, and they were confident in the original UX/UI that was implemented. We enacted some major changes, yet ensured the core branding and store vibe carried over, making their translation more seamless.
Keyring.com is based in Long Island, NY. Every item they sell is stocked and manufactured by Keyring. Most items are shipped the same day from their facility in New York. MakDigital designed and developed an online store for Keyring that was more modern and better brand integrated. Their original homepage was heavy on text and less visually appealing; they needed an updated design to bring them up to speed in an era where online shoppers are seeking a visually stimulating, more valuable shopping experience.

Timewalkertoys.com has leveraged MAK Digital Design for a complete overhaul to their web business.

We implemented better-organized navigation, and added more strategically placed call-outs to encourage the user to complete orders on the website quickly and easily.
