How to migrate images to Volusion?

Since Cart2Cart only generates the link to images on the source server but doesn’t actually move them, you will have to transfer images manually. During migration setup it is recommended to pick an additional option “Preserve product image URLs ” and generate image URLs. In a case, this option is unchecked images will be displayed from your Source store and when it will be down, images won’t be shown on a Target store any more. When you’ve selected this option, after migration you have to copy the folder with images from the source shopping cart to Volusion. To do that you have to:

1. Create a new site in FileZilla (File->Site Manager)
