Secondly, come to market share of ZenCart and Prestashop

From those reasons, it encourage people to import Zen Cart to Prestashop. However, the question is How to migrate Zen Cart to Prestashop?
There are three ways to do that:
1. Manual transfer: While manual transfer is an option, it is by far not the best one. Not only you will have to spend a lot of time and effort performing the routine work of copy-pasting, but you can also never be sure about the results. There is a big chance of making a mistake along the way, which may lead to data loss.
2. Hiring a professional can be one of the alternatives to manual transfer. It guarantees a higher quality of work, however will still require a lot of time and most likely cost you a tidy sum of money.
3. Automated migration. The option you should definitely consider is an automated shopping cart migration with LitExtension. It requires no programming skills and no software to download. Moreover your store will be migrated in a matter of minutes and with no data loss or duplication.
