What should I know about migration of product descriptions to PrestaShop?

PrestaShop has some product description peculiarities - they are limited to 400 and 800 symbols by default.


When migrating to PrestaShop, you should be aware that Cart2Cart will cut your product descriptions to acceptable 400 (for Short Description) and 800 (for Full Description) symbols, in case they are longer. This will be done in order not to break the functionality of your cart. If longer than permitted product descriptions will be migrated to PrestaShop, further editing and saving of them will be impossible.


You can appeal to PrestaShop support in order to customize PrestaShop code and extend limits set by default in cart’s files.

After your product description limits will be changed, Cart2Cart will be able to perform remigration of your uncut product descriptions with clearing current data on PrestaShop store to avoid duplication.

Note: Additionally, due to PrestaShop limitations, Meta Descriptions of categories will be cut to 800 symbols too.

Just set up the migration and choose the entities to move – the service will do the rest.
