IndieCommerce to Complete Bookstore Site Migrations Next Month

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

In the past year, more than 100 ABA IndieCommerce sites have successfully migrated to the system's new Drupal platform, and now the migration of store sites from the old system to the new is in its final stages.

Over the course of next month, IndieCommerce staff will be moving stores still on the legacy system to the new platform, where they'll have the benefits of a very flexible, stable, and search-engine friendly website. The new system also allows ABA to begin offering many exciting features that booksellers have been requesting for several years.

ABA is contacting 10 legacy stores each week via e-mail to explain details of the move and how the store site will look, feel, and work differently. As soon as a store site goes live on the Drupal platform, customers will be able to place orders. To facilitate booksellers' ability to administer their new site, IndieCommerce has developed several training videos, covering many aspects such as content creation and placement, and order processing.

Last fall, IndieCommerce extended the deadline for all sites to move to the new platform to March 31.
