The Cart2Cart pricing is flexible. The replatforming cost depends on:

  • amount of records to move -namely, the count of products, customers, and orders.
You can estimate the cost of your replatforming with Cart2Cart using the Migration Estimator.

Can I see how the service works without paying for it?

When you are happy with the Demo results, you can move on with the Full (paid) replatforming.

Absolutely not. The migration process doesn’t affect your Source shopping platform in any way. You can go on selling as always while the data is being migrated.

Will my VirtueMart store data be affected by the migration?

No, your migrated VirtueMart e-store data isn't influenced by the transfer at all. In layman's terms, the data (products, customers, order history, etc.) is only “copied”(exported) from VirtueMart and “pasted” (imported) into your new store database.

So, the data migration process is totally secure for the e-shop that is transferred and there is zero risk of losing any of the data. We guarantee 100% uptime and data security during the transfer with the help of Cart2Cart database migration tool. In other words, you can keep selling while your Source Store data is being exported to the new shopping cart.

Does the data migration process influence my VirtueMart store performance?

No, the data replatforming doesn’t affect either the speed, or the performance of your existing VirtueMart store. The Cart2Cart migration service just “copies” the info from your VirtueMart store and “pastes” it into the new Shopify one. It doesn’t impact the store in any way, so you can keep selling as usual.

Cart2Cart Reviews

TONY HOWARD

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.

This Shopify Migration App worked great to migrate our store from Volusion to Shopify! It transferred over all product descriptions, photos, categories, etc. seamlessly. It’s very easy to use, and the instructions are very easy to follow. Considering the amount of information that we needed transferred, it did not take as long as we had expected.



We did an initial transfer to test out how things would look and how everything would function. It worked great! We purchased insurance with our migration so that we could re-migrate once our shop was closer to being ready to push live, and customer service has been AMAZING in our requests necessary with our remigration. They are very responsive, very informative, and extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend this service if you are looking to transfer your eCommerce site. Everything has been great! Thank you!

I contacted Cart2Cart’s help desk (direct chat) and had my questions answered very quickly and very politely. I feel much more confident now with my decision to use Cart2Cart to do the data migration from my existing website to Shopify. I was recommended to Cart2Cart for Shopify Migration by a trusted friend and I will definitely recommend them also to anyone looking to migrate. Moving website providers has been a source of stress for me and at least this is one less thing to worry about.

Fantastic App. We migrated from Volusion to Shopify with no problems. Customer Accounts, Inventory, Sales Orders…everything was transferred over.

The only quirk we had was that passwords didn’t transfer over (I’m sure this is a security issue and I have no problem with it at all). The solution was to just send out a mass e-mail to all of our customers asking them to reset their password. Once they reset their password they would still have their shipping information saved as well as the list of their previous orders.

WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS APP…but like any migration process be sure you research & make sure you are doing it the correct way so there are no issues. You can’t blame a vendor for a user mistake 🙂

We migrated a large x-cart site to shopify. This was the only app that could help us migrate hundreds of thousands of orders and customers. They were extremely knowledgeable and responsive. They answered my questions quickly and accurately. The initial migration went smoothly with no errors. The final migration at launch (to bring in the newest orders and customers) went equally as well. Data security was also handled to my satisfaction. Definitely would recommend this app.
