No, your migrated Zen Cart eCommerce website database isn't affected by the transfer at all. In layman's terms, the data (products, customers, orders, etc.) is only “copied”(exported) from Zen Cart and “pasted” (imported) into your VirtueMart store database.
So, the data transfer process is totally secure 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 migration via Cart2Cart database migration tool. In other words, you can keep selling while your Source Store data is being moved to the new platform.

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
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.
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.
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!
This app made moving to Shopify from Zen Cart SO easy! Thanks for a great, easy-to-use app that made new store development a breeze!
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.
Great bussiness, and extraordinary on line help, great tech chat, really great service, from old shop Zen cart to a superb prestashop 1.6x. Thanks a lot, save time and money… I recommend for sure
