I have done my first successfully migration from Virtuemart to Opencart. I must say that this service saved me a lot of work and scripting. The demo possibility is perfect to try out, trial and error before committing.



This was the perfect solution for me and I am going to use it again very soon, only this time Virtuemart to Prestashop. Looking forward to use your service again.

I needed to switch from Interspire to OpenCart, after doing a little bit of research I’ve understood there’s no easy way to import all the data without hours of work so I’ve asked the guys from Cart2Cart to do it for me. Everything went smooth without any problems. Will recommend them in the future

I just used the demo to migrate a few products, customers etc. All I can say is WOW. Does exactly what it says, not tweaking to do! The demo only took a few minutes and is VERY easy for the end user. I am going to do the full migration now. I very much recommend this product! I went from Virtuemart 2 to Opencart by the way.

No complaints at all with this company. I have used the service a few different times to migrate from Volusion to Opencart and then from Opencart to Shopify and every time the process has been super easy, quick and efficient. Customer service also is excellent. There seems to be someone available on chat to help 24/7 which is extremely helpful!

I even experimented with another migration service, but ended up returning to Cart2Cart as they are simply superior. Thanks!

We were looking to migrate our e-commerce website from existing platform of Opencart to Shopify. After reviewing multiple options, we decided to try out Cart2Cart. After reading a few tutorials (which are not lengthy BTW) , I decided to talk with rep from Cart2Cart. From that point on, I was provided with step by step instructions and I was migrated to Shopify in less an hour! Super easy .. Rep was helpful and instructions are clear and easy to follow for someone with little to no technical abilities. I highly recommend this tool for your migrations! Keep up the good work Cart2Cart team.
