This was useful for portions of our import from WP. It didn't do everything we needed, however, we did find it to be a vital component in the transfer process.


This app does NOT do what it promises to do! If you're thinking about using it, run the other way.

You know where it says it "imports" everything...well it doesn't. It imports the blog posts and text, but continues to use the old URL/path to refer to the images on your old WP server. So.... everything looks good and you go to launch your new Shopify store (which points your website away from your old WP site) and the images in the blog all disappear because those image paths no longer exist.

It has made a mess of our site and cost us a lot of money to fix.


I couldn't get it to recognize the URL to my WordPress blog -- and without better documentation, there was no way to troubleshoot.

For those for whom it works, it sounds marvelous. But alas, that wasn't me.


HORRENDOUS. Totally bogus. I went to the trouble of saving my Wordpress.org to Wordpress.com in order to import. Don't bother. You will need to rewrite the content and upload the original images to Shopify anyway - especially if your blog was part of a domain that you are repointing to Shopify. The content screen totally screws up text and images. Save yourself the trouble and use a subdomain.


It's a great app if you have time to import every time you post a new blog. I wish it would do it automatically for us.


Works, but strips all the formatting out so each blog post looks like a giant block of text. Why wouldn't shopify simply permit the uploading of the XML export that Wordpress can produce and retain formatting?


Terrible app. it never completes the actual import of all your blog posts, numerous times getting stuck on importing comments. The blog posts that do get imported over lose most of the formatting of the content and images. After contacting support on this, I was told this app really only works with .com Wordpress blogs, not .org WP blogs. Brutal. Stay away.




Awful. Doesn't automatically import new posts, and every time you import, it creates a new blog, forcing you to delete old blogs from the store admin. It's so much extra work, useless.


This app works [mostly] as expected, if there was better documentation somewhere I would have given 5/5 stars. Shopify support staff was amazing as usual.
