Zen Cart to OpenCart migration FAQs

Can I migrate languages to OpenCart?

Cart2Cart supports multiple language migration across different platforms. Nevertheless, you should check the migrated data table above to see if this option is available for your migration case.

How to migrate Zen Cart customers to OpenCart?

To find out if the tool can migrate your Zen Cart webshop customers to OpenCart, please consult the list of transferable entities. Then, simply tick the Customers checkbox while configuring the import 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 achieve 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 finished, and activate the "Continue Migration" button.
  4. Once done, return to the second step of the Migration Wizard "Demo Migration" and just press "Start Demo Migration" button. The Demo database transfer 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 export the data from)
  • target platform type (the one you migrate to)
  • volume of items to transfer -namely, the count of products, customers, and orders.
You can calculate 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 migrate a limited number of data records (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 move on with the Full (paid) migration.

Will the migration affect my existing store?

Absolutely not. The replatforming process doesn’t harm your current eCommerce cart in any way. You can go on selling as always while the data is being exported.

Will my migrated Zen Cart store data be deleted after the migration?

No, your migrated Zen Cart e-store data isn't impacted by the replatforming at all. Actually, 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 transfer 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 transfer with Cart2Cart database migration tool. In other words, you can keep selling while your Source Store data is being transferred to the new shopping cart.

How do I perform a product export from Zen Cart to OpenCart store?

To automatically move your products from Zen Cart to OpenCart, simply tick the necessary 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 have to check the required block (Orders) in Migration Wizard during migration configuration and your Zen Cart orders will be imported to OpenCart shortly.

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

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

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

Please, follow these steps to migrate your Zen Cart store database from to OpenCart:
  • Select Zen Cart and OpenCart carts from the list.
  • Select the data you want to migrate to OpenCart and pick the supplementary migration options.
  • Start free Demo migration to see the service in action.
  • Start the Full database export.

If you want to migrate attributes to the OpenCart platform, we recommend you to to check the table of supported data records above to make sure it is supported for your Zen Cart to OpenCart migration prior to starting the data replatforming.

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.
