Blocks of Migration Process
This will include all the information stored in your site, covering your database belonging to that Magento instance. All the important stuff like orders, customers, products, configuration settings will be beautifully transferred to your new site. This is the base stage where all the default data of Magento will be operated.
First of all, we will check if that extension's functionality is covered by any default feature of Magento2 or not. If yes, then we prefer to use that default feature. If it does not, then you need to purchase the extension from that vendor. In case you are not satisfied anywhere in that search, we provide separate service to develop it to match your exact needs.
In case you have made any separate customizations in your site, and they are available in Magento2 by default, then we prefer to use the default feature. If not, we will customize it to carry forward to your new site.
The theme is such a part that cannot be transferred directly. In this case, either you need to search at some other place for a new theme, or else note down your design requirements so that we can develop the best theme desired by you.
