We’ve moved our storefront from Jigoshop to WooCommerce

Hey there WordPress e-Commerce community, we’ve completed our in-house storefront migration from Jigoshop to WooCommerce and other than taking a lot longer to complete than initially planned it’s done without a hitch!

We are now proudly running WooCommere on our storefront for the sale and distribution of our free and Premium WordPress e-Commerce Plugins!

A little bit of history

We cut our teeth on WordPress e-Commerce store migrations back in 2013 moving our storefront from WP e-Commerce to Jigoshop, Product, Coupons and Orders came over but we screwed up download permissions which meant customers could see their purchase but couldn’t download Plugins… *head smack*

Fast forward a year and we’re stuck with an e-Commerce platform that we had hard-coded changes into Jigoshop core making updates harder and harder to maintain. In hindsight we should have never, ever, ever made core Plugin changes and instead raised queries with the Jigoshop team so we could maintain custom WordPress Plugins to extend Jigoshop.

From July 2014 plans were drawn up, we were moving to WooCommerce. We announced this in our end of year address but had no idea what was involved.

Migrating to WooCommerce

While the explosion of Plugin development riding the popularity wave of WooTheme’s WooCommerce has produced hundreds, if not thousands, of e-Commerce extensions store migration between platforms is a niche point with few options available, in our case none supported migrating Order download authorisations which is critical to our store needs as a Plugin distributor.

We had two options:

  1. use the Jigoshop to WooCommerce extension to migrate our Products over to WooCommerce and start over with a fresh WooCommerce instance with no existing Orders, or
  2. build a custom WordPress Plugin to take all that is Jigoshop and paint it WooCommerce

After all the hard work generating thousands of Orders, developing our Plugin distribution platform to extend Jigoshop to deliver Plugin updates it was clear we weren’t starting over. Had we gone with a fresh WooCommerce instance we would have been killed resource wise re-building existing Orders and download permissions for over 10,000+ existing Orders, our customer base would have been pissed. We needed to migrate everything and make sure it worked.

We teamed up with Gaetan Ouandja in November 2014 and went to work on migrating each detail from Jigoshop to WooCommerce on a per feature basis, starting small with basic Product details that used simple custom Post meta (e.g. Price, Sale Price, Sale Price Dates) before moving onto Custom Term Taxonomies (e.g. Product Types) and when we were confident moving onto the heavy stuff (Jigoshop custom tables, Product Attributes, Order Items, Download authorisations).

The migrator Plugin was built so that it could run in the background while the new WooCommerce storefront continued to operate and could accept new Orders, another important aspect of the Plugin was that it would continue running as a server process even if the browser session timed out. Having the migration process running as a server process was a life saver as we regularly hit browser time outs running some migration processes and had the process ceased midway through a step it would poison that portion of the WordPress database and require us to take the storefront down while we restore the backup database.

Migration Day

Ater testing and testing and testing on staging sites and local development instances of our storefront it finally was time to to do it on the live site. After a full backup and short notice of scheduled maintenance it was go time.

As of midnight the Jigoshop to WooCommerce migrator has successfully migrated:

  • 10,000+ Orders
  • 105,000+ Order Items
  • 10,000+ download permissions assigned to Orders
  • 50+ Products with Variations, electronic download files assigned to both Simple and Variable Product Types
  • 50+ Coupons with usage

To say this has been hard work is an understatement but it was so worth it!

The future

We will add a friendly wizard UI as well as an advanced view to the migration Plugin with a goal to distribute this Plugin as a free basic offering on the WordPress Plugins repository and as a Premium Plugin in the next quarter.

For our storefront we will continue to tweak our VLShop Theme to optimise it for WooCommerce as it was originally developed for Jigoshop. With the move to WooCommerce we can offer a better experience to customers by enabling PDF invoicing, multiple currency support, affiliate opportunities, the list goes on… :)

In the latest release of Store Exporter Deluxe you will find integration for Extra Product Options, Custom User Meta, Custom Customer Meta as well as Custom Products Meta now appearing within the Order Items: … exports fields when exporting Orders, there’s also a new Export Type for exporting Shipping Classes and our usual batch of fixes including better detection of corrupt WordPress Options.

Shipping Classes

As part of our preparation to launch our new Store Importer Plugin we’ve added support for exporting Shipping Classes. Supported fields include:

  • Term ID

Export Fields control for Scheduled Exports and CRON Exports

By default when a scheduled or CRON export is generated we include all possible export fields, with today’s release you can switch between including all export fields or those saved on the Export tab from previous exports. We’re already preparing both the Scheduled Exports and CRON Export engine to support specific fields just for that export, more details to come in future Plugin updates.

Export Modules

A regular question raised with us is ‘Is [insert Plugin] supported?’, the introduction of the Export Modules meta box on the Export screen will go a step towards answering this, in future Plugin updates you will be able to expand each Plugin you have activated to see what Export Type it integrates with (e.g. Advanced Google Product Feed is integrated to our Products Export Type). Very exciting and shows how many Plugins we currently support! :)

Plugin update: Store Exporter Deluxe for WooCommerce 1.7.8

Hi WooCommerce store owners, the 1.7.8 Plugin update for Store Exporter Deluxe brings Export to FTP support to the Scheduled Export and CRON export engine as well as a suite of additions and some UI fixes related to our drag-and-drop export field ordering.

Export to FTP

With today’s release you can set up scheduled exports of any export type to upload your export file (e.g. CSV, XML or Excel 2007) to your preferred FTP server. We support the following input fields:

  • Host/Server
  • User
  • Password
  • Port
  • Passive mode/Transfer mode
  • File path
  • Timeout

We support automatic detection of passive mode with an override option where this fails. By adjusting the Export Filename field under General Settings on the Settings screen you can generate scheduled exports via FTP to a fixed path that can be used by other suppliers and/or CRM systems.

If you really wanted to push it you could use our Product Importer Deluxe Plugin to import and merge Products into another WooCommerce store’s by fetching the CSV from a fixed external URL (e.g http://www.domain.com/wp-content/uploads/exports/store-a.csv)… 😉

Product Vendors

We will be rolling out support for Commissions and other Product Vendors-related goodies in future Plugin updates to help store owners wrestle the amount of raw data that Product Vendors generates into simple, easy to understand exports that can be used by store owners as well as vendors.
