Upgrade From Free to Pro Version

If you want to retain your settings from free version, then please read these steps.

There are two ways to store settings in WordPress Settings API and Customizer API. Settings API is same as plugin options and is available to all themes, whereas Customizer API is theme specific and its only available to current theme. So it is not possible to fetch old settings and store it in new theme.

However, all the customizer options available in free theme is also available in Pro version. To retain Home Page settings, Go to Customizer => Theme Options => Home Panel
