Can Cart2Cart create redirects to my new products and categories after migration to Magento?

Yes, our service creates redirects to the new products and categories after migrations to and from Magento shopping cart. In order to proceed with them, merchants will have to select an additional option “Create 301 redirects on your target store after migration” during the entities selection step on Migration Wizard.

Beware of such pecularities:

1. Magento doesn't allow trailing slashes in its URLs, so they will be trimmed after migration. For example, if your URL looks like this: www.myoldstore.com/electronics/ipod-nano/, it’ll look like this when the migration is finished - www.mynewstore.com/electronics/ipod-nano

2. Magento adds “index.php” to its URLs, by default. To prevent this do the following:

  • Log in to Magento
  • Step to System->Configuration
  • Click on Web in the General section
  • Under Search Engine Optimisation, set Use Web Server Rewrites to Yes, under Secure set Use Secure URLs in Frontend to Yes too. Then, click Save config.
  • Create an .htaccess file in Magento root directory and put the this code in it:
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    If your Magento store is in the subdirectory - use this code:
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /shop/
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /shop/index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
  • Save the changes.

3. To activate redirects after the transfer to Magento, you’ll have to perform data reindex.

What are the peculiarities of Order Full IDs migration from/to Magento?

Cart2Cart enables you to transfer your Order Full IDs if you pick up additional option “Preserve order IDs on Target Store”. This option allows you to keep your Source Store IDs on the Target Store during the migration process.

However, preserving Order IDs on Magento has some peculiarities due to platform’s architecture. Cart2Cart will migrate Order Full IDs from and to Magento if they contain figures only (no other symbols or letters) and additional option “Preserve order IDs on Target Store” is chosen.

Example: Source Store order #17 will be migrated as the Target Store order #17.

NOTE: If your Source Store Order IDs contain other symbols than simple figures, Cart2Cart will migrate only numbers after “0”.

Example: Source Store order #2-100000034 will be migrated as the Target Store order #34.
