You can count the cost of your migration with Cart2Cart with the help of the Migration Estimator.

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

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

No, your migrated Zen Cart store info isn't influenced by the transfer at all. In layman's terms, the data (products, customers, order history, etc.) is simply “copied”(exported) from Zen Cart and “pasted” (imported) into your Magento store database.

So, the data migration process is totally safe 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 transfer with the help of Cart2Cart database migration tool. In other words, you can keep selling while your Source Store data is being exported to the new shopping cart.

The Cart2Cart migration service just “copies” the info from your Zen Cart eCommerce website and imports it into the new Magento one.

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!

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.

We were up against the wall on time amd looking for a way to migrate our data from Zen Cart to Magento. We are a small operation and most quotes for the data migration were way more than we could afford. But we couldn’t run the risk of losing customers by forcing them to re register.

The $50 Cart2Cart automated solution looked risky, but we researched the company and saw ALLOT of positive feedback about the service.

Our Migration went perfectly. TWICE. We paid to move the data into a Development server, saw everything the service had to offer. Then, because the service is so stable, we elected to skip moving the data into Dev and then into production, and migrated again DIRECTLY into production (shows you how solid the service is).

I recommend this service to everyone I meet that moving from one eCommerce cart system to another. I use it when I consult on other peoples moves.

It’s a silver bullet solution.

The bottom line is that Cart2Cart migrated a zen cart store that had 500 products, 30,000+ order records and an excess of 40,000 customers to a new Magento installation. The data was flawless and once it was done the new site picked up RIGHT where the first one left off. Fantastic service and we are beyond pleased.

We are migrating from Zen Cart to Magento, and we came over cart2cart from MagneticOne Team.

The ease of setup and the Demo possibilities convinced us at once that we could save hours of work.

For some reason when I went from demo to real transfer something happened and I got page 404 not found error.

I contacted live chat and the support team fixed the problem and the whole process from I discovered Cart2Cart and was finished with the transfer was less than one hour.

Even with my mistake in the process.

The whole experience was so impressing that I found it proper to let others know of this excellent product and with the great support, if something goes wrong.

I thought transitioning our web shop from Zen Cart to Magento was going to be a nightmare…but with your migration service the transfer of my customer data was easy! I have no expertise in database management, and the process couldn’t have been easier to use. Thanks for this great service, you saved me a huge headache and a lot of money!!

We just migrated one of our clients away from Zen Cart to Magento using Cart2Cart.



The free demo migration was a great feature and gave us lots of confidence.



2 years worth of Zen Cart data was sucked into Magento in a few clicks. Client is very happy and we are very happy to be rid of Zen Cart!

Recently I was in the market to move from the open source software Zencart to Magento Commerce and I was looking for the fastest option to migrate all my data to this new store. I found Cart2Cart via an ecommerce forum and they have done wonders for my business. Not only have they saved time but also money and the headaches involve in any migration process.



Thank you to the wonderful team and great work you have done.
