My store is using X-cart. I have plan to migarate it to Magento. Could anybody tell me which migration tool is secured?

  • What do you mean by "is secured"? – benmarks Apr 13 '15 at 18:28

  • The question is rather vague and not much details, what version of X-Cart, what migration tools are to be considered, what data is required to be ported, etc. Regardless, I have some old guides that may help if you plan to do it the most secure way, custom: molotovbliss.com/export-x-cart-products-for-magento & molotovbliss.com/… – B00MER Apr 18 '15 at 3:15

It depends on your shop and needs. Both solutions below only offer migration of catalog (and sales) data. Any other data like CMS pages etc you will have to write a script for yourself. I've used both options below with success several times

1. custom

On highly customized shops (specially on the database) it's best to write your own migrations. You'll need to generate CSV's containing the BigCommerce shops products, categories and customers. For Magento I'd suggest using AvS FastSimpleImport which is a wrapper of Magento's Dataflow import (which is a bit wonky)

2. paid service

For simple, default shops I would go with Cart2Cart. I'm not in the habit of promoting paid services but as far as migrations go they provide a very good and reliable platform. You'll have to install a file in either shop which will connect the stores and transfer categories, products, customers and orders

  • The question is probably regarding moral integrity of the migration service people. Is it "secure" to hand them the database that contains personal information of customers and business information (sales data etc) of the business. – Ejaz Dec 17 '19 at 18:03
