Partner with a Treepl Reseller RECOMMENDED

Ok, ok, we realise you perhaps haven’t had the best experience with your BC reseller (designer/developer). But this time it’s different.
We strongly recommend creating a relationship with one of our resellers as these savvy people are passionate about the Treepl platform and are experienced in BC migrations. And most of all, they really want to help you move off BC and to a better solution.

We have resellers all over the world and you can search them by country here:

Use the Migration App

If you are more of the hands-on type of person and have some level of how your BC site is structured, you may like to consider using the ‘BC to Treepl’ migration app.

Due to the nature of website development, there is no magic button that can seamlessly move your entire website and keep everything functioning as normal. It’s just never going to happen. However, the migration app can achieve around 80% of the heavy lifting and hard-to-reach data sources from within BC’s depths.

If your site has a lot of data that is not easily exportable and you understand how and where this data is stored, then the migration app could be a great tool for you in migrating your site yourself.

After the migration app has done it’s thing, you can review your trial site for any remaining things that might need to be completed - either resolving these yourself (if you have the chops for it), or seeking Treepl Services for a review and fix solution.

The migration app is free to evaluate and is only billable if you choose to launch the migrated site. Migration cost will be calculated prior to starting the data transfer for your information only - this will not be charged at this point.

Yes, we totally understand that you may not have had the best experience with your BC reseller (designer/developer). But this time it’s different.

Start with a Template (DIY)

Since time is of the essence, starting with a free template can really get you up and running quickly. So long as you’re comfortable with doing all the customisations and content yourself - or you can seek further assistance once your template is up and running.

If setting up your own site, you’ll need to sign up as a reseller yourself (even if you just have the one site).
The FREE USER reseller plan is likely your best option.

Managing your website yourself requires a good knowledge of web technologies (HTML, JS, CSS), an understanding of DNS management, and an understanding of how the CMS works from a development point-of-view.
If you are not confident in any of these areas we strongly recommend consulting with a Treepl reseller instead.

Once you have access to your reseller portal, you can spin up a trial site using one of the many free templates and start working in it within a few minutes - all for free.
Only once activating the site will you need to start the billing for your required site plan.

Going forward, you can deal directly with our in-house design and development team by submiting a project from your reseller portal to Treepl Services with further development requests.

Add an Admin User to your BC Site

When working with a Treepl reseller or Treepl Services to migrate your site, you’ll need to grant them administrator access to your site.

When logged in to your BC site admin, navigate to ‘Site Settings’ > ‘Admin Users’.
Then click the grey “Invite Admin User” button at the top of the page.

If you have reached the Admin User limit for your site plan, you will need to remove a user to allow for the new Administrator (the removed user can be added to your new site on Treepl CMS)

Inviting an Admin User to your BC Site

Enter the email address supplied by the person you are working with. In the case of Treepl Services it will be migration@treepl.co

Since the email address you enter will most likely already be a BC user, the system will detect this and disable the name and phone number fields, so you won’t need to complete these.

Then, select an appropriate “User Role/s”. If you are unsure, just select all User Roles available and the admin will adjust appropriately once they log in.

Click "Invite" to complete the process.

Adding an Admin User to your BC Site

They should soon receive a notification of admin access, however, please let them know you have now added them in case the BC notification fails or other error occurs.
