If you've decided to move your Wordpress website to Weebly, there are 3 things you need to transfer: domain, theme, and content.
At the moment, there's currently no single button to click in Weebly that'll automatically import your Wordpress website into Weebly. This is a manual process because Weebly and Wordpress use different interfaces and files to build a website.
Below, we'll provide some quick information on transferring your Wordpress' domain, theme, and content to Weebly, but if you need help, you can hire Themezier to take on this service for you.
You need to transfer your domain to Weebly's servers. Right now, your domain is being used by Wordpress' servers.

Note: If your domain wasn't purchased through Wordpress, then you'll simply need to make the changes above with the company you purchased the domain from.
If you haven't already, create a Weebly account first.
For themes, you can choose one of Weebly's free themes, purchase a third-party Weebly theme, or convert your Wordpress theme to Weebly.
If you want to convert your Wordpress theme to Weebly, the theme will need to be built from scratch in Weebly.
As mentioned above, Weebly and Wordpress use different interfaces to build a website, so a Wordpress theme that's imported into Weebly will not display correctly because the Weebly Editor can't read the Wordpress theme's files.
From here, you can either manually create your Wordpress theme in Weebly if you're knowledgeable with code, or you can hire Themezier to do it for you. Here is an example of a Wordpress theme called "Rowan" that was converted into a Weebly theme:
At the moment, Weebly doesn't offer a feature to easily import content from Wordpress to Weebly with the click of a button. So instead, you'll need to copy and paste text and images from your Wordpress site to Weebly pages:
If you need a Weebly page layout to look and function like a page layout on your Wordpress site, you can hire Themezier to create a new custom page layout for your Weebly site.
