Zen Cart to OpenCart migration FAQs

Can I migrate languages to OpenCart?

Cart2Cart supports multilingual transfer across different platforms. However, you should refer to the migrated data table above to see if this kind of move is available for your migration case.

Is it possible to export customers to OpenCart?

To determine if the tool can migrate your Zen Cart store customers to OpenCart, please check the list of transferable records. Then, simply tick the Customers checkbox while configuring the transfer in the Migration Wizard to indicate you’d like to move the customer data.

Can I retry 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 do it - do the following:
  1. Log in to your Cart2Cart account.
  2. Navigate to My Migrations List.
  3. Find the appropriate migration where the demo is performed, and click the "Continue Migration" button.
  4. Once done, return to the second step of the Migration Wizard "Demo Migration" and just click "Start Demo Migration" button. The Demo database migration will start over again.

What is the cost of transfer with Cart2Cart data migration service?

The Cart2Cart pricing is flexible. The transfer cost depends on:
  • source platform type (the one you transfer from)
  • target platform type (the one you move to)
  • amount of entities to move -namely, the count of products, customers, and orders.
You can count the cost of your transfer with Cart2Cart via 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 permits to migrate 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 platform in around 10-15 minutes. When you are happy with the Demo outcome, you can move on with the Full (paid) migration.

Will the migration impact my Source store sales process?

Absolutely not. The migration process doesn’t harm your existing shopping platform in any way. You can go on selling as usual while the data is being moved.

Will my Zen Cart store data be affected by the migration?

No, your migrated Zen Cart eCommerce website database isn't affected by the transfer at all. Basically, the data (products, customers, order history, etc.) is just “copied”(exported) from Zen Cart and “pasted” (imported) into your new store database.

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

How to export Zen Cart products to OpenCart?

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

Can I migrate Zen Cart orders to OpenCart?

To move the orders from Zen Cart to OpenCart, you should tick the required option (Orders) in Migration Wizard during switch setup and your Zen Cart orders will be imported to OpenCart shortly.

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

No, the data replatforming doesn’t harm either the speed, or the performance of your existing Zen Cart e-store. The Cart2Cart migration service just “copies” the data from your Zen Cart e-store and imports it into the new OpenCart one. It doesn’t influence the e-store in any way, so it can run as usual.

How do I perform a database migration from Zen Cart to OpenCart?

Please, complete these steps to move your Zen Cart store database from to OpenCart:
  • Choose Zen Cart and OpenCart carts from the list.
  • Select the data you want to import to OpenCart and pick the supplementary 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.
