Eighty five percentage of businesses have ever felt unsatisfied and want to change their shopping carts. However, not all of enterprises know how to move your shopping cart to another safely. There are three main ways of data migration that most businesses choose: hiring developers; migrating database manual and using automated migration tool.




First, you can find a freelancer in communities. He can help you to fix error and bug, migrate SEO URLs. However, nothing is sure that the result brings user-friendly interface, secure (SSL) connection. Even worse, developers can’t migrate from your shopping cart to new cart, especially with unpopular e-commerce platform.
Secondly, many businesses migrate database themselves. It requires e-merchants have many experiences with shopping cart migration. With many new versions of e-commerce platforms, experiences are not enough to migrate database properly. Migration process usually has errors about compatibility with existing hosting, servers. New site can become unresponsive. 
Thirdly, using automated migration tool is one of the most popular ways. E-merchants can migrate shopping cart quickly. You should follow some steps in the guideline to implement data migration properly. Migration tool is used by many people, so probability of happening errors is lower. Moreover, technical support will help you solve errors during migration process. You can consider woocommerce migration tool at http://litextension....tion-tools.html.

Mr.Gregory, a store owner in Florida, shares his experience on risk of leaking data when migrating shopping cart. He moved his old website to WooCommerce using data transfer service of technology company that he found on internet. Unfortunately, his business went down continuously and the revenue dropped significantly in spite of paying high cost for migration process.

His marketing team investigated and finally found out that they lost a lot of customers information to our competitors. He looked for reasons with hope to save his business.  The reason was that during migration process, his website data was transferred from Source Store to center server of the company providing migration service and processed there before being pushed to WooCommerce target store. It seemed that someone took advantage of this gap to steal customer information. It is a serious error.
How did Mr.Gregory solve this problem? The answer is at http://blog.litexten...-data-security/

Well, you could hire some professional developer team to get your data migrated to WooCommerce safely. But you can also go with an automated migration solution, which is not only equally secure, but cheaper as well.

I’d suggest you using Cart2Cart automated shopping cart migration service known for being qualitative and 100% secure. It’s fairly affordable too. In any way, you could give it a try by starting with a free demo, if you want.
