  4. When done, go back to the second step of the Migration Wizard "Demo Migration" and just press "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 migration cost depends on:

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

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

Yes, the Cart2Cart database migration service offers a free unlimited Demo Migration feature (test transfer).

When you are satisfied with the Demo outcome, you can move on with the Full (paid) migration.

We guarantee 100% uptime and data security during the migration with the help of Cart2Cart database migration tool. In other words, you can keep selling while your Source Store data is being migrated to the new eCommerce platform.

The Cart2Cart migration service just “copies” the info from your Zen Cart e-store and “pastes” it into the new PrestaShop one. It doesn’t influence the e-store in any way, so it can run as usual.

Having attempted a Zen Cart migration to Prestashop I was faced by days of spreadsheet manipulation and rebuilding of categories. The task ahead was not only daunting but tedious. Enter Cart 2 Cart. The promise of a simple migration at a reasonable price was extremely welcome so I gave it a go. Every host, customer, shop operator and web developer works differently so considering the task at hand, the migration went very well. Support was very swift, efficient, friendly and competent. I would recommend the assisted migration service in particular for shop owners not too familiar with their installation. Although you can normally find out how to migrate from any cart to any other, can you afford to spend days or weeks doing it?



In particular thanks to Oleg who really knows what he’s doing – Let me know when you build your own cart, i’ll sign up right away !

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

Cart2Cart helped me with several PrestaShop migrations. They always give good support, ready to listen and help if needed. I migrated several stores with 15000 products, with no problem.

This is the best migration tool I know.

This was the only service that worked for X-Cart5 to PrestaShop migration. Other paid service (even a paid “pro” module on PrestaShop store) revealed completely useless. With Cart2Cart I was able to test migration and quickly see any issue on the target shop. I recommend it
