To respond to a lot of customers’ demands for migrating current shopping cart to OpenCart or upgrading OpenCart 2 to 3, LitExtension gives you two ways to try.

These 2 ways are compared in 3 criteria:

  • How simple
  • How much
  • How efficient

Let’s see which is the most suitable choice for your business:

Import CSV Files to OpenCart Manually

  • Step 1: Export the database of your source cart to CSV files.
  • Step 2: Select data in CSV files of source store and import to your target store.

Ease: There are different video guides or documents in the Internet, but following them is too difficult. You need a lot of technical skills to do this.

Efficient: It can bring satisfactory results if you are lucky. That’s true. Because of 2 different structures, some errors may happen in the importation procedure. You can fix it if you are an expert. Or you need to hire developers for support.

Cost: Free at first. But look carefully please, you may have to pay for post-migration activities when you need someone to fix the bugs. And this amount can’t be estimated.
