Great service which allowed us to transfer products, customers and orders database of our customer from Virtuemart to Prestashop 2 times: a first time in order to prepare the new website and a second time in order to update new customers and new orders placed in the meantime. Without Cart2Cart this would have been more complicated… A great customer service also, very available and very competent. Thanks to them

Cart2Cart helped me with several PrestaShop migrations. They always give good support, ready to listen and help if needed. I migrated several stores with 15000 products, with no problem.

This is the best migration tool I know.

This was the only service that worked for X-Cart5 to PrestaShop migration. Other paid service (even a paid “pro” module on PrestaShop store) revealed completely useless. With Cart2Cart I was able to test migration and quickly see any issue on the target shop. I recommend it

Brilliant…I needed to migrate from oscommerce to Prestashop and Cart2cart made it so very easy. I was doubtful at first so I ran the on-line demo which put me at ease as it so worked well that I went to the next stage and migrated the entire shop. Completed in minutes, no need for any support just followed the simple on-screen instructions and that’s all there was to it. Thank you it was worth every penny
