To transfer your Wix domain to Shopify, you’ll need to follow these steps:
1. Unlock your domain: Log in to your Wix account and go to the Domains page. Find the domain you want to transfer and click on “Manage.” Under the “Transfer Out” tab, click on “Unlock Domain.”
2. Obtain the authorization code: Still on the Domains page, click on “Advanced” and then “Transfer away from Wix.” You’ll see the authorization code for your domain. Copy this code as you’ll need it later.
3. Purchase a Shopify plan: If you haven’t already, sign up for a Shopify account and choose a plan that suits your needs. Shopify offers various plans with different features and pricing options.
4. Add your domain to Shopify: In your Shopify admin dashboard, go to “Online Store” and then “Domains.” Click on “Connect existing domain” and enter the domain name you want to transfer. Click on “Next.”
5. Verify domain ownership: Shopify will prompt you to verify your domain ownership. You can choose to verify via email or by adding a TXT record to your domain’s DNS settings. Follow the instructions provided by Shopify to complete the verification process.
6. Initiate the domain transfer: Once your domain ownership is verified, Shopify will guide you through the process of initiating the domain transfer. Enter the authorization code you obtained from Wix and follow the prompts to complete the transfer.
7. Wait for the transfer to complete: The domain transfer process can take a few days to complete. During this time, it’s important not to make any changes to your domain settings or transfer request.
8. Update your DNS settings: After the transfer is complete, you’ll need to update your DNS settings in Shopify. This ensures that your domain is properly connected to your Shopify store. Shopify will provide you with the necessary DNS settings, which you can add in the Domains section of your Shopify admin dashboard.
Once you’ve completed these steps, your Wix domain will be successfully transferred to Shopify, and you can start using it for your online store.
