Cactus Outdoor

Migration of iconic New Zealand outdoor gear brand from Magento to Shopify


Cactus Outdoor is a legendary New Zealand outdoor gear brand. For over 30 years, they have continued to manufacture their high quality clothing, packs, and accessories in New Zealand and they have a reputation for making truly outstanding gear.

Our founder recalls with fondness his Cactus Vacuole Backpack that he had through high school and university and on his travels beyond—a backpack Cactus still makes and sells 20-something years later!

How to migrate to Shopify from Magento on a shoestring?

As lifelong fans of Cactus, we were honoured to have the opportunity to support them with the migration from Magento to Shopify.

Their internal team had already begun the process of setting up a Shopify store and needed more expert guidance and support—particularly with the complexities of mapping the data from Magento and their third-party POS system into Shopify.

Data-wrangling and connecting the dots between Magento, Shopify, and Retail Express POS

Migrations from Magento to Shopify can be challenging at the best of times as most Magento setups tend to be done differently and there are rarely best-practice implementations.

Add to the mix a connection to a third-party point of sale system and the data side of things can get complex.

A lot of the work we do during a migration is gathering the data from the various systems and bringing it together in a central place so we can then transform and wrangle it to clean up any errors or inconsistencies in the process of mapping it to Shopify.
