Which data cannot be imported from Magento to Shopware?

Some data cannot be mapped automatically:

  • Delivery times: Delivery times cannot be adopted – it is mapped to the fallback delivery time of SW4 (basic settings> shopping cart / article details).
  • Configurators: For technical reasons, the articles are transferred directly to configurators.
  • Configurators: As there is no weight-addition configurator in SW, this information is lost
  • Configurators: There are no discount configurators in SW. Magento Price surcharges <0 are therefore ignored
  • Delivery addresses: Different delivery addresses will not be imported. The following applies hereafter the migration: Billing address = delivery address
