Cart2Cart: migrate your data to and from Joomla Virtuemart

Cart2Cart is a shopping cart software migration service. The website lists a fairly big list of cart software they can migrate between. Here are a few of the 24 supported carts:

  • Joomla VirtueMart
  • OsCommerce
  • CRE Loaded
  • ZenCart
  • Yahoo Store
  • PrestaShop
  • Magento

Migrating data from one ecommerce software to another is a quite complex task. This is caused by many differences between cart software implementations:

  • product catalog fields(attributes) and their database mappings
  • product category structure
  • discounts, product packs, time limited offer handling
  • customer data(username, email, etc.)
If you run a multilingual shop there's added complexity because each product or field is saved separately for each language.

database schema and RDBMS(for example, you might need to migrate from MySQL to Oracle)

Note: customer passwords are usually stored as a 'hash' (signature) for security, so depending on the hash system your customers may need to re-generate their passwords once the shopsite is migrated.

Cart2cart's usage of Amazon EC2 Elastic Compute Cloud service is a plus for reliability and speed.

Please note that this is a service, not a Joomla extension as the category suggests.
