I have two WordPress sites, One is ecommerce site with WooCommerce and other is private login only site for customers of the ecommerce site.

Now I am looking for a way to convert them into a multisite installation with same user base across both sites.

It will great if someone show me a way to achieve that without losing any data from the both sites.

To me the best way would be to:

  1. Leave the ecommerce site intact since it's where all the important content exist.
  2. Enable multisite on ecommerce site. See official documentation: https://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network
  3. Export everything on the private site (Tools - Export - All content)
  4. Import it on a new site created on the new network.
