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

No, your migrated Zen Cart eCommerce website database isn't influenced by the replatforming at all. Actually, the data (products, customers, orders, etc.) is simply “copied”(exported) from Zen Cart and “pasted” (imported) into your Shift4Shop store database.

So, the data transfer process is totally secure for the store that is transferred and there is zero risk of losing any of the info. 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 migrated to the new platform.

Does the migration process interfere with my Zen Cart store functionality?

No, the database replatforming doesn’t harm either the speed, or the performance of your existing Zen Cart store. The Cart2Cart migration service just exports the records from your Zen Cart store and “pastes” it into the new Shift4Shop one. It doesn’t influence the store in any way, so it can run as usual.

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.

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.
