From now and on our clients don’t have to create API Credentials, Cart2Cart will do it for you automatically!
Migration from BigCommerce only requires you to provide Admin email address and password. However, there is a number of cases, in which an error occurs:
- The email or password you’ve entered is invalid;
- Your Administrator account on BigCommerce is disabled;
- Bigcommerce site is unavailable;
- API Credentials cannot be created for other reasons.
But, even so, there is a different way to start the migration. Look through this FAQ to find out where you can get BigCommerce API Path and API Token.
Standard and Plus plans have a limit of 20,000 API calls per hour, unlike Pro plan, that features 60,000 API calls per hour. As for Enterprise clients, they have unlimited API calls. In case you hit this threshold, don’t worry, your migration is still ongoing. All your Product Variants will be transferred accurately and securely, but it will take a little bit longer. These limits were submitted by BigCommerce, that’s why Cart2Cart cannot exceed them. Just chill out and wait, the replatforming process will be completed as soon as possible.

301 redirect is a permanent redirect from one URL to the other.
Yes, Cart2Cart provides a possibility to migrate 301 redirects to BigCommerce. But it’s possible only if your Source Cart supports migration of categories and products SEO URLs, they are:
Note: If you choose "Clear current data on Target Store before Migration" option, all your 301 redirects on Target store will be cleared.(more…)
Cart2Cart provides a possibility to migrate SKU to your Bigcommerce store. Nonetheless, there is one peculiarity. In a case, there are the same product SKU on your source store and Bigcommerce store, after migration your SKU will look like SKU 1, SKU 2, etc. For example, SKU #153 on your source will look like SKU #153 1 on your target Bigcommerce store.(more…)
Yes, Cart2Cart does create redirects after migrations to Bigcommerce, but only if the additional option - "Create the 301 redirects on your target store after migration" is chosen on Migraiton Wizard.
