How to test migration to Magento 2 while you still using Magento 1

With M2E Pro you can test Magento 2 and you don’t need to stop the synchronization process on your Magento v.1.

How to do the test migration? 

1) The first and major thing you need to do is to import your database tables dump from Magento v1.x to the Magento v2.x 

2) The imported data will be adapted to the Magento v2.x environment. After tables are transferred, you will see Step 2 of the Migration Wizard.

3) Set Disable M1 Synchronization option to No to keep synchronization on Magento v1.x running. Click Continue.

4) On Step 3, set Enable M2 Synchronization option to No. Click Complete.

That’s it! Now you can explore Magento 2 functionality and check how your data was transferred.


To continue working with Magento 2, you will need to disable the synchronization process on your Magento v.1 and enable it for Magento v.2.

For that, go to System > Configuration > M2E Pro > Migration to Magento v2.x in Magento 1 and turn off Automatic Synchronization

After that, in Magento 2 go to Stores > Settings > Configuration > M2E Pro > Advanced Settings > Migration from Magento v1.x and enable Synchronization.


If you don't need to test Magento 2, you are welcome to proceed with the full Migration process.
