To learn if the service can migrate your Zen Cart e-store customers to CS-Cart, please review the list of transferable data. Then, simply click the Customers checkbox while setting the transfer in the Migration Wizard to indicate you’d like to move the customer data.

  4. When ready, go back to the second step of the Migration Wizard "Demo Migration" and just activate "Start Demo Migration" button. The Demo data migration will start over again.

What is the cost of transfer with Cart2Cart data migration service?

The Cart2Cart pricing is flexible. The replatforming price depends on:
  • source platform type (the one you transfer from)
  • target platform type (the one you import the data to)
  • number of entities to import -namely, the count of products, customers, and orders.
You can count the price of your replatforming with Cart2Cart using the Migration Estimator.

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

Yes, the Cart2Cart database migration service provides a free unlimited Demo Migration feature (test transfer). It allows to import a limited number of data entities (up to 10 products, customers, orders and other data related to them) from Zen Cart to your new CS-Cart shopping cart in around 10-15 minutes. When you are satisfied with the Demo outcome, you can move on with the Full (paid) replatforming.

Will the migration affect my existing store?

Absolutely not. The migration process doesn’t influence your current eCommerce cart in any way. You can go on selling as usual while the data is being exported.

Will my Zen Cart store data be affected by the migration?

No, your migrated Zen Cart e-shop data isn't affected by the transfer at all. In layman's terms, the data (products, customers, orders, etc.) is simply “copied”(exported) from Zen Cart and “pasted” (imported) into your new store database.

So, the data transfer process is totally safe for the e-shop that is migrated and there is no 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 moved to the new eCommerce platform.

Does the migration process interfere with my Zen Cart store functionality?

No, the database migration doesn’t affect either the speed, or the performance of your current Zen Cart e-store. The Cart2Cart migration service just exports the data from your Zen Cart e-store and “pastes” it into the new CS-Cart one. It doesn’t impact the e-store in any way, so you can keep selling as usual.

I have been very happy with the service and support of Cart2Cart in migrating from an older WebAsyst based e-commerce site to a much more modern CS-Cart based one. Worked perfectly!

Absolutely brilliant service, saved me hours and hours of work and of course money. Needed to do some extra work once the migration had been completed but there is no way I would have managed a 12,000 products line migration within 36 hours.



Migrated data from Magento to an existing CSCart ecommerce site. Great service would highly recommend it.

I can’t say anything but EXCELLENT. These guys know their job and do it with perfectness. I was migrating from the ZenCart store to Magento 2, and they helped me through the whole process. Especially, I want to thank Lena and Nina, as they were really helpful with all my concerns and doubts. Support is the best. That’s what I call SUPER CUSTOMER SERVICE!

I had close to 8,000 products in a ZenCart store that I needed to migrate to Shopify. C2C did it all for me quickly and inexpensively. It’s the best solution out there that I’ve found to move from one eCommerce platform to another.

I’ve used the service/software for two website migrations (ZenCart to WooCommerce). The second one failed, also because of my own error, but the supprt was great and Cart2Cart team helped getting it all working flawless.



Very impressed by this software and even more by the aftersales support. Will use again when needed.

It’s amazing how Cart2Cart was able to move products (many with tons of variants), images, orders, and more flawlessly from ZenCart to Shopify. It saved many many hours of what would have been imperfect and frustrating labor. Bravo!

We switched from ZenCart to 3DCart and was skeptical about doing the manual migration but Cart2Cart was there with technical online chat every step of the way and it was a smooth, easy and affordable transition. THANK YOU so much! Your support technicians were friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful.

We’re in the process of migrating from Zen Cart to Magento, and hoping to go live with the new site early in 2012. The shopping cart migration service was excellent. We were able to migrate about 1,000 products and about 2,500 customers within just a few hours (started migrating in the evening, and the migration was complete by the next morning). You should know that you can run the test migration multiple times to allow you to double-check your settings – this is a huge time saver. Also, after your migration has been completed, you can do incremental migrations that will only capture new data. We’ll be using this feature as we get closer to going live. Overall, I give this service a 10 out of 10. It was super easy to set up, and worked exactly as advertised. We’ll definitely be using it again and recommending it to others.
