Many of my customers have Magento 1 stores. This year Magento will stop supporting this system and because of this these customers need to migrate to another system. Migration can be difficult and very time consuming process. But then i found Cart2Cart. There solution is the best and affordable. With the first migration there where some problems, but i did made some mistakes with filling in the correct fields to get a connection between the current and the target store. After starting a chat these problems where fixed very quickly. Support is very good and there solution is very affordable. The perfect solution!

Have used Cart2Cart’s services at least 3 times in the past years and I am currently planning another 3 migrations for this month alone for moving clients from Magento 1 to Magento 2. It is very easy to use and saves an immeasurable amount of time and costs. You can even migrate the store customer passwords! It’s the only way really to migrate really

Large Magento 1.9.x store (10k products, 2k categories, 1000s of orders/customers) updating to Magento 2.3.1 – usually it would take hours and a lot of money and manpower to do it, using cart2cart enabled us to do it with ease and in no time at all.



No issues, fast communication – highly recommended.

I wish I had learned about this company weeks ago. The service is INCREDIBLY reasonable and quick. I spent weeks trying to use Magento’s official tool to migrate from 1.9 to 2.1. I spent more time than I could imagine reading, researching and trying. the fact of the matter is, it isnt simple. These guys have a software that makes it very easy. not only that, their support is FAST and PROFESSIONAL. They sat with me through multiple demo migrations, fixed issues, and even offered to help me with a very unique issue I had with my migration regarding images. Definitely, DEFINITELY recommend!
