Do you want to know how to launch migration from OpenCart to WooCommerce?

OpenCart is an extraordinary choice for those looking for eCommerce solutions. WooCommerce, just like OpenCart, an open-source platform, has grown in popularity over the years. While both of them are excellent instances of eCommerce store management systems, the OpenCart to WooCommerce migration quantity has been significantly noticeable. OpenCart compared to WooCommerce exclusively serves a certain customer segment. OpenCart caters to smaller and medium-sized enterprises. Moreover, OpenCart has a lack of customizability which makes its users sacrifice some extent of flexibility. WooCommerce provides effective solutions to all these issues. As it's an extremely user-friendly platform and provides infinite customization options.

How to Migrate from OpenCart to WooCommerce?

You can transfer to WooCommerce by following one of these three methods:

Manual Shift

This method is about carrying out all operations associated with a whole migration on your own. Depending on the data size of a shop, the process might take a few weeks or even months to get completed. For manual transfer, you must also have learned some technical know-how. However, total control over all the steps will be in your hands. So, you will be able to design your site yourself. Here are all the steps of the manual shits:
  • Data Backup
Whatever method you choose for your store import, the first step will always be to backup the data from your old store. Do it by heading to the System button of the OpenCart Dashboard. After selecting System, locate and choose the Maintenance option, which reveals the Backup/Restore button.
  • Export Your Store
In this step, you have to download all the existing data of your current store for WooCommerce integration. These data will be imported later to your new store for product migrating and also for other entities. For example, to transfer customers from OpenCart to WooCommerce, you have to download the CSV file containing all the consumer data.
  • Import Data
There are different third-party WooCommerce plugins and addons that will let you import all the entities from the previous store. The dashboard of the new store or plugin you are using will have an import option through which you can upload all CSV files you have downloaded prior. To import orders from OpenCart, upload the CSV file containing orders’ data.

Assisted Transfer

This procedure is about hiring a third-party eCommerce professional. A developer will assist you in exporting and importing your store to the new site. He will also correct problems, establish security and personalize the site to your specifications and needs. Such specialists are expensive, and they require time to change platforms. An average developer may charge around $50-$250 for an hour.

Automated Importers

An automatic importer tool will be an ideal method to transfer to WooCommerce. Importer tools automatically access and gather various entities before importing them into the target shop. It streamlines all procedures, such as product migration or migration of SEO URLs, and produces the greatest results. There is a significant difference OpenCart and WooCommerce share. As a result, an OpenCart to WooCommerce migration will provide users with increased protection. If you wish to move, try a free demonstration of the Cart2Cart importer tool.
