    What is the most suitable shopping cart for your business in fifty e-commerce platforms?

    Eighty five percentage of businesses have ever felt unsatisfied and want to change their shopping carts. However, not all of enterprises know how to move your shopping cart to another quickly, easily, safely and with the lowest price. There are several ways to move their stores. There are three main ways of data migration that most businesses choose: hiring developers; migrating database manual and using automated migration tool.

    #1: Some companies think about hiring a specialist developer to transfer shopping cart effectively and seamlessly. There are a lot of freelancers that you can find in forums and communities. However, developers need time to write a new suitable tool. It can help you to fix error and bug, migrate SEO URLs and implement multi store migration. Nothing is sure that the result brings user-friendly interface, secure (SSL) connection. Even worse, developers can’t migrate from your shopping cart to new cart, especially with unpopular e-commerce platform. On the other hand, businesses usually have to pay a high cost for a personal developer.

    #2: Many businesses migrate database themselves. This way allows you to perform migration on your own and save money to hire a professional. You can find guide to change your cart from third party. But it requires e-merchants have many experiences with shopping cart migration. With many new versions of e-commerce platforms, experiences are not enough to migrate database properly. Migration process usually has errors about compatibility with existing hosting, servers. New site can become unresponsive. It is difficult to migrate all the entities saving the relations, implement SEO migration and multi-store migration.

    #3: Using automated migration tool is one of the most popular ways. E-merchants can migrate shopping cart quickly. Most of migration tools do not require technical skills. You should follow some steps in the guideline to implement data migration properly instead of hiring a developer. This tool can support you to move product description, category, customer detail, customer password and even URLs. Migration tool is used by many people, so probability of happening errors is lower. Moreover, technical support will help you solve errors during migration process. In this way, businesses need to purchase shopping cart migration tool. Fortunately, the basic price of tool is quite comfortable. It only starts at $99 and no incurred costs.

    I think moving shopping cart manually can help you to reduce cost. Maybe migration tool is expensive with high incurred expense.

    I don't think so. I know some migration service can take a lot of money of business to transfer data to new site. Last month, my customer lost $900 to transfer his website from bigcommerce to woocommerce. However, if you can find better migration tool (such as woocommerce migration tool by litextension in my customer's case), the cost is cheap. I am sure that.

    I think using migration service is safe to guarante database transfer. However, I know some businesses have to pay a lot of money for technology company. There are high incurred expenses during migration process.

    If you want to migrate to a new shopping cart, you must make sure that the all the URLs of the existing categories, subcategories, and product description pages match all the URLs in the new shop. If it is not possible to match the URLs, you can issue 301 redirects. The downside is that you will lose the original SEO rankings your old URls have achieve because these 301 redirects cannot fully pass over the link juice.

    "After proposing to CEO of Skincare Company, he purchased and downloaded woocommerce migration tool from LitExtension website. It seems that migration steps are easier than old tool. He was surprised, because this tool can migrate customer password while many companies say it is impossible. He received more benefits, more free additional features such as re-migration, recent data migration. Total price is less than a half price of old company’s service. The most important thing is no incurred expenses." - Norman, a technical manager of a natural skincare brand in USA said.
    You can read a real case about a company, which is luckly not to loose many money for data transfer. What is cost incurred when migrating from your store to dream shopping cart? – LitExtension Blog

    If you are more concerned of the cost, you can try doing it yourself. Businessmen also do this to save since hiring freelance developer is very costly. However, it takes enough skills and experience to do it although you can get a guide online on how to do the migration process.

    Do you want to convert from a cart to other cart? What is exact things you want to know? Above automatic migration tool supports developers and store owners to migrate data to three popular e-commerce platforms including Magento, Prestashop, WooCommerce by Litextension, a provider of shopping cart migration tools and services.

    Before hiring or migrating try the support forums and check if they were any active developers are present. There are so many people who bid for your project, but these software owners already might made some plugins to import the database properly.
    First look if the urls are correctly converted to previous urls, else don't import and don't lose your valuable buyers.
