How to migrate behind the scenes processes and data into editor X? Who has done this?

Hi- So I manage and edit a site for ecommerce and the current editor leaves me parched.

We have a continuous stream of new invoices sent and being paid, not to mention tracking present orders, and I need to know what the migration process looks like in keeping this transition seamless so our team isn't jumping between two sites.


So far I see some problems with migrating to an editor X site as a new site:

  • I want to manage/receive prior invoices, fulfill orders placed on the old site, etc., I can't transfer Premium to the new site and have the capabilities that need to be managed until they complete their cycle, but I can't have those features on the new X site without transferring premium. Catch 22.

  • Hover boxes... when you implement hover boxes into editor X as the "responsive" editor platform, please give GUI control over the animation. The current editor's gui-uneditable default is trash.

  • Historical data will be lost (or in the old site) on orders and invoices and with our product lifecycle, we need the ability to look back through past fulfillment. https://support.wix.com/en/article/request-moving-between-the-editor-and-editor-x


Without being able to make a new site version using the editor X within the current site, I worry about the viability of ever being able to transition to an X site.

Has anyone here migrated an existing e-commerce site? What were your biggest losses / gains in retrospect?
