About the App

Worried about upgrading from V2 to V3 yourself? Let our developers do it for you with professional, white-glove service every step of the way.

Many store owners are unaware of the complexities involved in upgrading from V2 to V3 in BigCommerce, or are hesitant to use a self-service app, or attempt to do the upgrade themselves. If that sounds familiar, we offer an affordable, full-service solution that takes the guesswork (and stress) out of upgrading.

Our service not only offers store owners' peace of mind knowing that the upgrade will be successful, it puts the task into the hands of our experienced team of developers who will complete the upgrade for you quickly and easily following our proven process:

  1. App Installation: By installing the V2 to V3 Migration app, you're granting us access to your store so we calculate the number of products to confirm the cost of the upgrade service. The app does not perform any upgrades or data analysis until the service is purchased and is only then used to extract your product data for our team to review. The rest of the process is completed by your assigned developer!

  2. Data Review: We will begin to manually review your data and provide you with a detailed report which will list any issues with items, data changes which may be needed prior to upgrading, as well as things which may function differently once upgraded to V3. For the most part, most data adjustments can be made by us. However, there may be some that will require you to adjust in your store prior to the upgrade, which we will provide you guidance on.

  3. Load Data to a Sandbox: Once all data issues have been addressed, we will load your products into a sandbox environment so you can see exactly how your items, variants, and modifiers will appear and function post-upgrade.

  4. Schedule the Upgrade: After reviewing your data and making any final adjustments, we will schedule your upgrade to V3! Our goal is to be as flexible as possible, so we'll coordinate with you to schedule a time that works best for you and minimizes downtime for your customers.

What happens on update day?

We will coordinate a day and time for your V2 to V3 upgrade, which may take a few minutes to several hours depending on how many products are in your store. During the upgrade, your store will need to be placed in "maintenance mode," so we'll work with you to determine the best time to avoid disruption.

During the upgrade, we will:

  1. Complete Final Checks: This involves downloading a fresh copy of your products to the sandbox environment, where we will run some final checks to make sure the data is ready for updating. This is usually done a few hours before the scheduled update.

  2. Go to Maintenance Mode: As mentioned above, the store will need to be placed in maintenance mode for the update to complete. We will post a note on the maintenance page that lets visitors know how long the store will be down based on our estimates as to how long the process will take.

  3. V2 Removal Begins: This is where our developer will begin to remove V2 options, modifiers, and rules from your items. Product IDs and SKUs will not change and if you have inventory set for items, we back that stock information up.

  4. V3 Update Begins: Our developer now begins to inject V3 options and modifiers to your products, as well as upgrading any rules to function correctly with your item's new properties.

  5. Pre-Relaunch Check: Once the process completes, our developer will run a final data analysis that ensures the update has been successful, or review any errors and make final adjustments. When our review is complete, we'll ask you to review as well before going live.

  6. Go Live! Once you and our developer have agreed the upgrade has been a success, maintenance mode will be turned off, and your store will be live with V3!

100% Developer-Led Migration

Our V2 to V3 upgrade service uses a proprietary process developed by our company founder, Don Cole, who has over 25 years of experience building and programming eCommerce stores. All V2 to V3 migrations are done under the watchful eye of Don - not an app - which takes the worry off the store owner making sure the upgrade is a success. While this is a more labor-intensive process, it guarantees that post-upgrade your items will have valid options, modifiers, and rules correctly applied. Oh, and you never know… Don may even do your upgrade personally!

Developer & Client Communication Every Step of the Way

We know that during an undertaking like this, store owners may be nervous about what's going on behind the scenes during the update process. Trust us, we've been in the development business for a quarter-century and have even owned eCommerce stores, so we know how critical store data is and how nerve wracking updates like this can be. But don't worry, our developer will provide continual updates as each step of the process is completed, keeping you "in the loop" every step of the way from beginning to end. Plus we make sure all data is thoroughly reviewed and backed up multiple times before beginning the upgrade process… there's no such thing as being too safe!

Case Studies

LA Police Gear v2 to v3 Product Migration Case Study

Before engaging Your Store Wizards, LA Police Gear considered using an app and the app developer's add-on option for additional migration support. While the app offered a solution to migrate using a combination of automation and additional fee hands-on support, the client was seeking a more white-glove solution.
