You were wonderful. Very helpful. You did the demo migration and now are doing the full migration. This is saving days of work on my part in moving the data in VirtueMart to the the new version. I have other clients that will be using VirtueMart and we will need your service for them. I will mention your service in the Joomla and VirtueMart forums.

I had used Cart2Cart 3 years ago for a migration from OSCommerce to Joomla/Virtuemart. I struggled with Virtuemart for 3 years and am sick of it. So remembering the good job they did 3 years ago, I had them migrate my data from VirtueMart to WooCommerce. Everything went smoothly except my photos didn’t get transferred correctly. I emailed them and gave them FTP access and they got everything fixed right up. I think they went out of their way to get my stuff up and going. I will use them again when I get sick of WooCommerce unless it works like it is supposed to

This service is just great. I actually migrate my oscommerce shop to virtuemart and of course I want to keep my customers and orders. So I did decide to use cart2cart service to do that task. The result is impressive. Everything worked without any problem.



I can recommend that service to everybody. It works great.

Thank you.

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.

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

I had a great experience with Cart2Cart. Reading some of the negative reviews here says more about how complex ecommerce migration is than anything else. I will say that I highly recommend paying the extra $ for their assisted service, which I did. It is totally work the extra $200 or $300 because you get a project manager who is very available, and you get to tweak your migration settings to make sure everything is just right. With the automated tools they offer, you’re on your own. But their customer support on my project was fast and responsive to my questions, and they were able to make any adjustments I needed. I migrated from Virtuemart to Shopify with over 12,000 orders and 4,000 customers. The migration was smooth. They scheduled the last “new data” import for me at a time I chose (within their working hours). And the migration was a success.

I’m about to migrate VirtueMart to WooCommerce and with this simple step by step instructions through the migration process, it is a great time saver for site migration. Excellent migration process, easy step by step instructions through the process and after demo import very kind gentleman called me for additional instructions and advice.

The free demo is a great feature. Support has been very impressive. The Demo migration itself took about 3 minutes with perfect results. I would highly recommend this service.

Cart2Cart is a very great product, hoping that automated software will save me a lot of time in the process of migrating from VirtueMart to WooCommerce.

All product information, user information and order history are migrated in one go, this is a highly recommended software!

All the time customer service is available and helped me fixed the issue during the setup process in no time. Thank you!

The migration-tool do exactly what is meant for.
