  • number of entities to import -namely, the count of products, customers, and orders.
You can count the price of your migration with Cart2Cart via the Migration Estimator.

Can I try Cart2Cart 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 number of data types (up to 10 products, customers, orders and other data related to them) from Zen Cart to your new Shopware shopping cart in around 10-15 minutes. When you are satisfied with the Demo outcome, you can move on with the Full (paid) replatforming.

Can the migration negatively influence my running store?

Absolutely not. The replatforming process doesn’t affect your existing eCommerce cart in any way. You can go on selling as usual while the data is being migrated.

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 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 new store database.

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

Will Cart2Cart import products from Zen Cart to Shopware?

To automatically import your products from Zen Cart to Shopware, simply tick the needed checkbox(Products) while creating your migration.

To transfer the orders from Zen Cart to Shopware, you have to tick the necessary field (Orders) in Migration Wizard during switch setup and your Zen Cart orders will be imported to Shopware right away.

Does the migration process interfere with my Zen Cart store functionality?

No, the database transfer doesn’t influence either the speed, or the performance of your current Zen Cart e-store. The Cart2Cart migration service just “copies” the records from your Zen Cart e-store and “pastes” it into the new Shopware one. It doesn’t harm the e-store in any way, so you can keep selling as usual.

How to transfer the database from Zen Cart to Shopware?

Please, follow these steps to move your Zen Cart e-shop database from to Shopware:

Really great service. We migrated an old Gambio shop to Shopware. The Shopware internal tool was not compatible to that Gambio version so we needed another tool to migrate products and customer data. The support of cart2cart was very nice and helped us with some issues we had with that old Gambio Version.

We will use the service of cart2cart in futures projects too!

Migrated from an old magento version to shopware. We had some custom issues concerning article variants, prices, images and so on. The support team was always very fast and capable. They did a great job on the adjustments. We definitely recommend Cart2Cart as a migration service!

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.
