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

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

We guarantee 100% uptime and data security during the migration with the help of Cart2Cart database migration tool.

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 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 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

Great service which allowed us to transfer products, customers and orders database of our customer from Virtuemart to Prestashop 2 times: a first time in order to prepare the new website and a second time in order to update new customers and new orders placed in the meantime. Without Cart2Cart this would have been more complicated… A great customer service also, very available and very competent. Thanks to them

I had a great experience with Cart2Cart. Reading some of the negative reviews here says more about how complex ecommerce migration is than anything else. I will say that I highly recommend paying the extra $ for their assisted service, which I did. It is totally work the extra $200 or $300 because you get a project manager who is very available, and you get to tweak your migration settings to make sure everything is just right. With the automated tools they offer, you’re on your own. But their customer support on my project was fast and responsive to my questions, and they were able to make any adjustments I needed. I migrated from Virtuemart to Shopify with over 12,000 orders and 4,000 customers. The migration was smooth. They scheduled the last “new data” import for me at a time I chose (within their working hours). And the migration was a success.

I’m about to migrate VirtueMart to WooCommerce and with this simple step by step instructions through the migration process, it is a great time saver for site migration. Excellent migration process, easy step by step instructions through the process and after demo import very kind gentleman called me for additional instructions and advice.

The free demo is a great feature. Support has been very impressive. The Demo migration itself took about 3 minutes with perfect results. I would highly recommend this service.

Cart2Cart is a very great product, hoping that automated software will save me a lot of time in the process of migrating from VirtueMart to WooCommerce.

All product information, user information and order history are migrated in one go, this is a highly recommended software!

All the time customer service is available and helped me fixed the issue during the setup process in no time. Thank you!

The migration-tool do exactly what is meant for.
