Let’s dive into each step one by one.

Set up Your Store

You’ve successfully installed SureCart and completed the quick and easy setup process, which means your store is now up and running. 

However, before you unveil your store to the public, there are some crucial settings you need to configure that decide how your store looks to visitors. 

This can include setting up the store name, and store logo, selecting the currency in which you’ll be selling, etc.

You can use this guide titled “How to Update Store Details” to learn how to fill in all the essential information for your store easily.

Once you’ve completed this step, you’re ready to add some personal and unique touches to your store.

Configure Your Branding and Notifications

Now that your SureCart store is up and running, it’s time to make it uniquely yours. Your store’s branding and notifications play a vital role in creating a memorable and consistent customer experience.

By setting up the branding, you can ensure that all the customer-facing areas like invoices, email notifications, customer dashboard, etc. show your brand colors, logos, and name.

Later, you can set up email notifications you might want to send to your customers or receive based on your requirements.

By following this step, you’ll ensure that your SureCart store reflects your brand’s personality and maintains a professional image in the eyes of your customers.

Next, let’s move on to connecting payment processors, a crucial step to start processing payments seamlessly on your new SureCart store.

Connect Payment Processors

If you’re considering Stripe, Paypal, or Mollie as your preferred payment processor for your SureCart store, they’re all super easy to connect with SureCart.

Here is a list of articles that guide setting up all the available payment processors in SureCart:

Remember that SureCart offers both live and test modes, allowing you to experiment with testing data before going live.

With payment methods in place, you’re now ready to import your customer data. Learn how to do this in the next step of our migration journey.

Import Your Customers

Now that you’ve successfully configured the payment processor(s) with SureCart, it’s time to turn your attention to importing essential data of existing customers like their first name, last name, etc. 

This crucial step ensures that your customer data is added so anyone can maintain a seamless relationship with your existing clientele as you transition to SureCart.

In this next step of our migration journey, we’ll guide you through the process of bulk-importing customer data with ease. You’ll discover how to create and organize a CSV file containing all the necessary customer details, making the transition smooth and hassle-free.

If you’re bringing over active subscriptions from Stripe, we got you covered. This guide will help you import payment details, such as credit card information, without needing your customers to enter it themselves.

Once you’ve mastered this step, you’ll be fully prepared for the next phase, which involves importing your products.

Import Your Products

Now that you’ve accomplished importing your customers into SureCart, let’s redirect our attention to another essential part of your migration journey: bringing in your product catalog. This step is critical for ensuring a smooth transition to SureCart and showcasing your products effectively.

In this next stage of our migration guide, we’ll walk you through the process of bulk-importing your products with ease. You’ll learn how to create and structure a CSV file containing all the essential product information, simplifying the process and saving valuable time.

Once the products are imported, you’ll be able to see them in your Products menu in SureCart. To see these newly created products, click in one of the products.

After completing this step, you’ll be well-prepared to showcase your product catalog effectively in your SureCart store and you are now ready to import your active subscriptions.

Importing Subscriptions

Now that your customer data is safe in SureCart, let’s talk about the next big step: importing your subscriptions. This step is crucial for moving to SureCart smoothly and making sure your subscribers don’t face any interruptions.

In this part of our migration guide, we’ll show you how to easily import lots of subscriptions at once. We’ll help you make a CSV file with all the necessary subscription info, so it’s easy to do, and you can manage your subscriptions in SureCart.

Once you’ve done this step, you’ll be ready to manage your active subscriptions in SureCart and make sure your subscribers have a smooth and enjoyable experience.

Now, let’s discuss the last but crucial task, especially if you plan to integrate SureCart with third-party apps like LearnDash, BuddyBoss, and others. This involves synchronizing your SureCart customers with WordPress.

Synchronizing Your WordPress Users With SureCart

Now that you imported the Customers, Products, and Subscriptions safely into SureCart, it’s time to do something really important: connecting your WordPress users with SureCart. This step is like the key to making the move to SureCart smooth and ensuring that your loyal customers don’t face any interruptions.

In this part of our guide, we will show you how to easily make your WordPress users work together with SureCart. You’ll learn how to connect them smoothly, so both systems can work well together.

Congratulations! You just synced all your SureCart customers with WordPress. You can go back to the same customer and check that now you have a WordPress User linked with SureCart Customer.

By following these carefully planned steps, you’ll have all the tools you need to move to SureCart smoothly. This will make the change easy for you and create a great experience for your customers.
