Zen Cart to OpenCart migration FAQs

Is multiple language transfer to OpenCart possible?

Cart2Cart supports multiple language migration across different platforms. Nevertheless, you should look up the migrated data table above to make sure this option is provided for your migration case.

How can I transfer my store's customers from Zen Cart to OpenCart?

To learn if the tool can transfer your Zen Cart e-store customers to OpenCart, please check the list of transferable records. Then, simply activate the Customers checkbox while setting 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 permits the users to restart Demo Migrations as many times as needed to different Target platforms. In order to accomplish it - do the following:
  1. Log in to your Cart2Cart account.
  2. Go to My Migrations List.
  3. Find the required migration where the demo is completed, and activate the "Continue Migration" button.
  4. When ready, return to the second step of the Migration Wizard "Demo Migration" and simply click "Start Demo Migration" button. The Demo store data migration will start over again.

How much does the data migration service cost?

The Cart2Cart pricing is flexible. The transfer price depends on:
  • source platform type (the one you transfer from)
  • target platform type (the one you transfer to)
  • number of items to move -namely, the count of products, customers, and orders.
You can estimate the price of your transfer with Cart2Cart with the help of the Migration Estimator.

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

Yes, the Cart2Cart database migration service provides a free unlimited Demo Migration feature (test transfer). It makes it possible to move a limited amount of data types (up to 10 products, customers, orders and other data related to them) from Zen Cart to your new OpenCart shopping cart in around 10-15 minutes. When you are satisfied with the Demo outcome, you can go on with the Full (paid) transfer.

Will the migration impact my Source store sales process?

Absolutely not. The replatforming process doesn’t impact your current shopping cart in any way. You can keep selling as usual while the data is being exported.

Do I risk losing data from my existing Zen Cart store after the migration?

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

So, the data migration process is totally secure for the store that is transferred and there is no risk of losing any of the data. We guarantee 100% uptime and data security during the migration via Cart2Cart database migration tool. In other words, you can keep selling while your Source Store data is being moved to the new eCommerce platform.

Will Cart2Cart import products from Zen Cart to OpenCart?

To automatically move your products from Zen Cart to OpenCart, simply tick the required checkbox(Products) while setting up your migration.

How to switch orders from Zen Cart to OpenCart??

To transfer the orders from Zen Cart to OpenCart, you should tick the required option (Orders) in Migration Wizard during switch configuration and your Zen Cart orders will be migrated to OpenCart in no time.

Does the data migration process influence my Zen Cart store performance?

No, the database transfer doesn’t impact either the speed, or the performance of your existing Zen Cart e-store. The Cart2Cart migration service just exports the records from your Zen Cart e-store and “pastes” it into the new OpenCart one. It doesn’t impact the e-store in any way, so it can run as usual.

How to transfer the database from Zen Cart to OpenCart?

Please, follow these steps to move your Zen Cart webstore database from to OpenCart:
  • Select Zen Cart and OpenCart platforms from the list.
  • Select the data you want to import to OpenCart and pick the additional migration options.

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.

I needed to switch from Interspire to OpenCart, after doing a little bit of research I’ve understood there’s no easy way to import all the data without hours of work so I’ve asked the guys from Cart2Cart to do it for me. Everything went smooth without any problems. Will recommend them in the future

I just used the demo to migrate a few products, customers etc. All I can say is WOW. Does exactly what it says, not tweaking to do! The demo only took a few minutes and is VERY easy for the end user. I am going to do the full migration now. I very much recommend this product! I went from Virtuemart 2 to Opencart by the way.

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.
