Next-Cart is not only an automated migration tool but also a service that allows you to transfer products, customers, orders, blog posts and other corresponding data from your current store to another eCommerce platform without effort. Our team members will be there to support you 24/7 during the migration and fix any possible errors until you are pleased with the final result. Also we provides a lot of free additional options for e-merchants with different needs.

For more detail, please read this instruction: https://next-cart.com/faq/how-to-start-working-with-next-cart-service/

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/

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.

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.

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:

  1. Go to your Account Dashboard > Migrations.
  2. Locate the migration tool you want to upgrade. Click Upgrade.
  3. Select the new Entity Limit, then proceed to checkout.

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.

VIP Support Service is a service that our experts will take care of the entire migration and necessary configuration to give you the most efficient result. It's very useful if you are not tech-savvy or you don't get enough time to operate and check on the migration process.

Here are some outstanding features of the VIP Support Service:

  • Experts take care of the whole migration process
  • Migration Customization
  • Target Store Installation
  • Change URL of Target Store
  • Technical Consultant

Kitconnect package is a PHP script used to establish connections between our migration tool and your open-source shopping carts. Following this instruction to upload it into your store:

  1. Download the Kitconnect package from the migration tool.
  2. Unzip the package and copy the entire Kitconnect folder into your store’s root folder.
  3. Access your_store_url/kitconnect_xxx/kitconnect.php, you will get Hi! I am Kitconnect message if it was uploaded successfully.

For more detail, check out this Video Guide

If you use our migration tool and get an error message related to Kitconnect, you may experience one of the common errors below:

  • You may have entered the wrong URL of your online store.
  • You have selected the wrong Source Cart Type or Target Cart Type.
  • You forgot to upload the Kitconnect package to your website.
  • You uploaded the file kitconnect.php without its parent folder kitconnect_xxx.
  • You uploaded the Kitconnect package into a wrong folder. The store’s root folder is the folder that contains index.php file.
  • The kitconnect package has wrong permissions. Please correct the permissions of the kitconnect file and folder according to this instruction: Kitconnect does not work after it has been uploaded.

Other technical issues: Common errors with Kitconnect.

If you cannot fix this problem yourself, please submit a ticket or contact us via Live Chat for the fastest support.

If you get any errors or need any help with the migration, please follow the steps below to get your problems solved:

  1. Pause/stop the migration
  2. Log in and submit a ticket from your Account Dashboard
  3. One of our technicians will be assigned to your ticket. He will support you throughout the migration project until you are satisfied with the results.

Don't worry if the images are missing after the migration. This issue can be fixed easily by enabling allow_url_fopen in your PHP configuration following these steps:

  1. Create/Open php.ini file under the public folder of your domain.
  2. Add the following lines to enable above php functions.
    allow_url_fopen = On

If you don't know how to do the steps above or the issue still persists, please submit a ticket or use Live Chat to get help.

If you are needing to migrate your store/shopping cart - LOOK NO FURTHER !
If you are needing to migrate your store/shopping cart - LOOK NO FURTHER. 
THIS is a HIDDEN GEM ! … I call them “The Dream Team” … had been struggling for weeks - working with other so called MIGRATION APPS … brought to tears with frustration - … pay them so YOU can do the CSV work ?! - what on earth do manufacturer’s/suppliers know about CSV’s, and especially that are so finicky that NOTHING works right but yet you NEED to migrate your business. For me, there was two 15 year old stores/shopping carts that I needed into 1 Shopify store - 50/50 USD and CAD - with same customers ordering for over 15 years - wholesale and retail … well NEXT-CART did it - and did it PERFECTLY - ALL CUSTOMERS ACCOUNTS AND ORDERS HISTORY WAS PRESERVED !! … and they didn’t bother me with the details - THEY DID IT ALL - and they began working the moment I downloaded the APP - started with the free TEST - I was so impressed I paid for the Full Service VIP - which was the same price or less then the other APPS who were having ME, do all the CSV work. No comparison here - day and night for quality of work and service. 
They work with technology that is far more advanced than the other APPS that say they are providing this service ... and they know what they are doing … and they do what they say. 
Professional and Reliable --- INTEGRITY ! 
Forever grateful I found these guys.

Next-Cart where there all the way and was very patient with me.Their solution is excellent, I was very happy with the end result and I will gladly recommend Next-Cart to any person needing to migrate their site to a new platform.

Harry was extremely helpful during the process.
There are a couple of gaps in the migration from OC2 to OC3, but Harry took care of most of these. The most glaring gap is that downloadable products do not transfer, but that was easy enough to do. Also, rewards points didn't transfer from OC2 to OC3.
