The most restrictive point of Cart2Cart is that clients have to perform the process themselves. As well as this, you only get a narrow amount of time for technical support with prohibitively expensive prices. You may get the migration assistance if you are willing to spend at least 149$. This number, ironically, equivalent to the whole All-in-One package of LitExtension.

Each LitExtension All-in-one purchaser will have a Personal Assistant. A Personal Assistant is one of our experts who take care of your migration from top to bottom. PA is also available to answer any questions via Skype/Email/Ticket.

  • Support UNLIMITED unlimited post-migration support for FREE within 3 months after the full migration.

Even if you are too busy to examine and detect the error after 3 month, don’t hesitate to contact us, we are still willing to help you deal with that without charging any further fee.

7. Time estimation

There is no way you can have a literal evaluation when using the services of Cart2Cart. Instead of that, you may only receive announcement once the protocol finished. This abstract feature may exert a huge number of hurdles preventing shop managers from operating either their old or the new shop.

Whilst, you can always ask for the time assessment of migration with All-In-One migration. Go to LitExtension All-In-One Migration Pricing Tool, select Source and Target Cart type then enter number of products, customers, orders then click “Get Price” button to get the time estimation immediately.

Time Estimation
Time Estimation

Truth be told, we are unable to provide you the exact time the migration may take. This factor depends on each particular migration case following by several criteria, such as:

  • Your server peculiarities
  • Type of eCommerce platforms
  • The number of entities for migration
  • Type of store data

Therefore, our migration estimator can only show the average time needed to migrate the entities that you have specified. Apart from that, there are also other criteria that affect the migration time, as mentioned above. All-In-One Migration service will take more time to complete than the Basic Migration.

However, this service allows you to rest assured that we will ingeniously carry out all the required tasks. Then we will fully announce you through email as soon as the migration process finished.
