I had a client who had a lot of items in a Yahoo Store. We needed to move it out of there and move to Zen Cart. The migration was extremely easy and we were very happy with our service.

Just wanted to say what a fantastic service this is. Saved me hours of work and helped me to transfer my products and attributes to CS Cart from Zencart.



The support provided is also fantastic and helped me sort out my issues very quickly. I will be using this service again and highly recommend it to anyone. It’s a lot easier than messing about with Easy Populate and CSV files.



Thanks again for this great service and top notch support

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.
