Zen Cart to CS-Cart migration FAQs

Cart2Cart supports multiple language transfer across different carts. Nevertheless, you should refer to the migrated data table above to see if this kind of move is available for your migration case.

How to migrate Zen Cart customers to CS-Cart?

To determine if the tool can migrate your Zen Cart store customers to CS-Cart, please review the list of transferable data. Then, simply tick the Customers checkbox while configuring the switch in the Migration Wizard to indicate you’d like to move the customer data.

Is it possible to run the Demo migration again?

Yes, Cart2Cart data migration tool permits the users to restart Demo Migrations as many times as needed to different Target platforms. In order to do it - do the following:
  1. Log in to your Cart2Cart account.
  2. Step to My Migrations List.
  3. Find the required migration where the demo is finished, and activate the "Continue Migration" button.
  4. Once 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.

How much does the data migration service cost?

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

Is it possible to try the Cart2Cart migration tool for free?

Yes, the Cart2Cart database migration service offers a free unlimited Demo Migration feature (test transfer). It makes it possible to transfer a limited amount 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 happy with the Demo results, you can move on with the Full (paid) replatforming.

Will the migration affect my existing store?

Absolutely not. The transfer process doesn’t affect your current shopping platform in any way. You can keep selling as usual while the data is being moved.

Will my migrated Zen Cart store data be deleted after the migration?

No, your migrated Zen Cart e-store data isn't influenced by the migration at all. Basically, the data (products, customers, orders, etc.) is only “copied”(exported) from Zen Cart and “pasted” (imported) into your CS-Cart store database.

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

To automatically transfer your products from Zen Cart to CS-Cart, simply tick the necessary checkbox(Products) while creating your migration.

How do I export orders from Zen Cart platform to CS-Cart?

Does Cart2Cart migration process impact my Zen Cart store performance?

No, the data replatforming doesn’t harm either the speed, or the performance of your current Zen Cart store. The Cart2Cart migration service just “copies” the data from your Zen Cart store and “pastes” it into the new CS-Cart one. It doesn’t harm the store in any way, so it can run as usual.

How to transfer the database from Zen Cart to CS-Cart?

Please, complete these steps to move your Zen Cart e-shop database from to CS-Cart:

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.
