How to calculate the price for my migration?
Firstly, you need to identify the amount of data for the migration. Particularly, you should be aware of what kind of data you want to migrate and how many of them. Therefore, we coined the term "Entity Limit" calculated based on the highest entity number among the count of products, orders, customers and blog posts.
All migration tools share the same price regarding the Entity Limit option. E.g. you want to migrate 900 products, 900 customers, 1000 orders and other related data, your highest entity number would be 1000, giving you an option of 1000 Entity Limit to select from and the price would be 69 USD.
For more detail, please read this instruction: https://next-cart.com/faq/how-to-calculate-the-entity-limit-of-my-store/
Will I be charged on all products, customers, orders and blog posts I have?
At Next-Cart, we only coin the number of products, customers, orders and posts you want to migrate. For example, if you just migrate active products and orders since 2017, you count the Entity Limit based on the number of those products and orders. We will customize the migration tool to move those items at no extra cost.
Will other data be migrated?
The Entity Limit only applies to products, customers, orders and blog posts. Other supported data such as categories, taxes, product reviews, etc will be moved entirely during the migration. For more details, please refer to the Supported Entities section on the migration tool page.
If you want to migrate data from third-party modules and extensions, our Migration Customization Service will help you do that.
How can I upgrade the Entity Limit after I bought the migration tool?
You have purchased the migration tool, but you want to migrate more data. You can upgrade the migration tool's Entity Limit to a higher plan.
In order to do that, you just need to pay an amount equal to the price difference between your current plan and the next plan. For example: your current Entity Limit is 500 at $49, you are going to upgrade to 1,000 Entity Limit at $69. So the amount you need to pay is: 69 – 49 = 20 USD.
Please follow the steps below to perform the upgrade:
- Go to your Account Dashboard > Migrations.
- Locate the migration tool you want to upgrade. Click Upgrade.
- Select the new Entity Limit, then proceed to checkout.
How many times can I perform the migration?
Within one year from the purchase, you can perform the migration as many times as you want. More than that, our technical team will support if any problems occur during the process.
During each migration process, if any problems are found, our technician will help you solve them all before performing another migration.
