Upgrading to Magento 2

So, you have a Magento 1.x website and now you know you have to rebuild your site in Magento 2.x. Eek! “It was expensive last time round and hard work, what am I in for now”, I hear you say! Fear not, help is at hand!

We have now designed and built a number of Magento 2.x sites and as part of this we made a big investment in understanding this new platform – worts ‘n’ all. The major thing we wanted to do was to find a way for existing Magento site owners to be able to upgrade at a minimum cost, because right now everyone keeps talking about it being a complete rebuild! After all, we have been designing and building great Magento 1.x sites for our clients, so we have a duty to find the most cost effective route.

Anyone that knows us, we are a very transparent bunch at objectsource, so let me be clear about our solution for migrating your Magento 1.x website to Magento 2.x.

Cost: Starts at £5,500 + VAT – yep, that low!

This is what you get:

  • Migration of all your products, existing orders and customers data.
  • Migration of your Magento configuration i.e. tax, shipping, emails etc.
  • Provide a new fresh theme. This is an objectsource theme that we have built for this migration, it is clean, fully responsive and will be customised with your own logo, fonts, colours, background style, buttons etc.
  • Provide an audit of all the Magento Extensions you are using and provide our recommendations of the new ones to use i.e. onestepcheckout, abandoned basket, payment solution if not PayPal etc.
  • Provide an audit of any custom features you have had and provide costs/recommendations for replicating these. These might be some funky sliders you have for the product filters, an integration with a back office system etc.
  • Finally, we will be with you until you are live and taking that first order.

Interested, then why don’t you either drop us a contact or give us a call and we will be happy to talk you through it.

Our Delivery Process


It is vital to the success of any project that everyone fully understands what needs to be delivered to ensure a highly successful outcome. During this phase we will run a workshop that will cover; website success criteria, design, user journey’s, your product portfolio, order management, order fulfillment and understand if there are any 3rd part integrations required.


objectsource uses an Agile development methodology. In short, this means we deliver your website in 1 or 2 weekly ‘Sprints’. Each sprint delivers completed areas of your website for you to review and feedback on. This way you get to see our progress throughout the project development cycle, you are not left wondering. You will be asked to plan your time to participate in each Sprint start briefing and each Sprint end testing/review.


A great looking website is one thing, but if it does not work then the customer will be put off and have a very negative view of your brand. Testing is undertaken throughout the delivery process to ensure that issues are discovered as early as possible and to negate having a protracted testing phase at the end of the project. You will also be invited to test at certain times throughout the project delivery.

Go live

Once you have given the go ahead to go live, we will run through a 35 point Go Live checklist, one that we have created over the years of delivering successful websites. This thorough process usually takes up to 1 day to successfully transition your site live.
