Can I transfer my metadata to WooCommerce?

Can I migrate my orders without customers?

Cart2Cart doesn’t allow to migrate Orders without Customers, because these data are connected.

Will my Zen Cart store function during the migration?

The actual migration process will not influence the speed of your current store performance.
As an exception, you might experience website performance slowdown for one of the following reasons that Cart2Cart is not capable either to control or prevent:
– the amount of products exceeds memory limit of your hosting plan;
– wide range of third-party modules;
– etc.
To get more details – go here.

What is order statuses mapping?

Cart2Cart enables you to map order statuses on Zen Cart with the corresponding ones on WooCommerce. Order status mapping helps to migrate the order data properly.
Order statuses have to be created by store owner on target WooCommerce shopping cart, so that they were shown on Migration Wizard when the migration is set. Create order statuses on WooCommerce store from Admin panel and map them on the order statuses mapping field of Migration Wizard to have orders migrated properly.

ZenCart is an almost dead CMS. There are no more updates. There are expensive maintenance costs, nasty support staff and rental server companies like Mafia. You should also migrate and come to the wonderful free CMS WooCommerce world. Free plugins, paid plugins, everything is amazingly high performance. It was a great experience for me. This software is not recommended for beginners. However, it is very useful for those who are familiar with the database and have a DIY spirit. The staff of this company are very kind. You can get in touch 24 hours by chat. If there is a problem, they will cooperate to solve the problem as much as possible. In fact, there were some bugs. The software is so complicated that the situation is different from shop to shop, so there is no way. However, I found a way to avoid the bug and eventually succeeded in the transition. I recommend buying migration insurance. Migration insurance is intended to remigrate if migration fails. I appreciate the excellent and helpful support staff and I will give 5 stars. Thank you to the great Ukrainians!

Tried to run a test import from Zen Cart to Woocommerce. Never happened. Went into chat and was told to have my host whitelist abuot 10 or so IP addresses. My host doesn't blacklist IP's unless they are deemed malicious. So that's not going to happen. Moving on to another solution.
