Cart2Cart supports multilingual transfer across different carts. Nevertheless, you should look up the migrated data table above to make sure this kind of move is available for your migration case.

Is it possible to export customers to SunShop?

To determine if the service can transfer your VirtueMart webshop customers to SunShop, please check the list of transferable entities. Then, simply activate the Customers checkbox while configuring the transfer in the Migration Wizard to indicate you’d like to move the customer data.

Is it possible to restart Demo Migration?

Yes, Cart2Cart data migration tool makes it possible for the users to restart Demo Migrations as many times as needed to different Target platforms. In order to achieve it - do the following:
  1. Log in to your Cart2Cart account.
  2. Go to My Migrations List.

  4. After, return to the second step of the Migration Wizard "Demo Migration" and simply press "Start Demo Migration" button. The Demo database transfer will start over again.

How much do you charge for the migration service?

The Cart2Cart pricing is flexible. The transfer cost depends on:
  • source platform type (the one you move from)
  • target platform type (the one you import the data to)
  • number of entities to move -namely, the count of products, customers, and orders.
You can estimate the cost of your transfer 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). It allows to import a limited number of data types (up to 10 products, customers, orders and other data related to them) from VirtueMart to your new SunShop eCommerce platform in around 10-15 minutes. When you are happy with the Demo outcome, you can go on with the Full (paid) transfer.

Can the migration negatively influence my running store?

Absolutely not. The transfer process doesn’t affect your Source shopping cart in any way. You can go on selling as always while the data is being transferred.

Will my migrated VirtueMart store data be deleted after the migration?

No, your migrated VirtueMart eCommerce website data isn't affected by the replatforming at all. In layman's terms, the data (products, customers, orders, etc.) is only “copied”(exported) from VirtueMart and “pasted” (imported) into your new store database.

So, the data transfer process is totally safe for the eCommerce website that is transferred and there is zero risk of losing any of the info. 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 migrated to the new platform.

Does Cart2Cart migration process impact my VirtueMart store performance?

No, the data replatforming doesn’t impact either the speed, or the performance of your existing VirtueMart store. The Cart2Cart migration service just exports the info from your VirtueMart store and “pastes” it into the new SunShop one. It doesn’t harm the store in any way, so it can run as usual.

Please, complete these steps to export your VirtueMart store database from to SunShop:
  • Choose VirtueMart and SunShop carts from the list.

I have done my first successfully migration from Virtuemart to Opencart. I must say that this service saved me a lot of work and scripting. The demo possibility is perfect to try out, trial and error before committing.



This was the perfect solution for me and I am going to use it again very soon, only this time Virtuemart to Prestashop. Looking forward to use your service again.

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

I had a great experience with Cart2Cart. Reading some of the negative reviews here says more about how complex ecommerce migration is than anything else. I will say that I highly recommend paying the extra $ for their assisted service, which I did. It is totally work the extra $200 or $300 because you get a project manager who is very available, and you get to tweak your migration settings to make sure everything is just right. With the automated tools they offer, you’re on your own. But their customer support on my project was fast and responsive to my questions, and they were able to make any adjustments I needed. I migrated from Virtuemart to Shopify with over 12,000 orders and 4,000 customers. The migration was smooth. They scheduled the last “new data” import for me at a time I chose (within their working hours). And the migration was a success.

I’m about to migrate VirtueMart to WooCommerce and with this simple step by step instructions through the migration process, it is a great time saver for site migration. Excellent migration process, easy step by step instructions through the process and after demo import very kind gentleman called me for additional instructions and advice.

The free demo is a great feature. Support has been very impressive. The Demo migration itself took about 3 minutes with perfect results. I would highly recommend this service.

Cart2Cart is a very great product, hoping that automated software will save me a lot of time in the process of migrating from VirtueMart to WooCommerce.

All product information, user information and order history are migrated in one go, this is a highly recommended software!

All the time customer service is available and helped me fixed the issue during the setup process in no time. Thank you!

The migration-tool do exactly what is meant for.

Great product… I normally never paid any of this tool, and I do it by myself… But this time, to migrate more that 600 items, I really would not miss any step.

I migrate from Virtumart (old joomla install) to woocommerce, and everything worked perfectly ! The support team was kindly available for my questions, so great service.

Only thing, the amounts of my articles was not migrated correctely, certainly due to a different version. Except that, all the categories, pictures, attributes etc… where correctely imported. So i’m very happy with the product.

Great job guys !
