Many people have given up using ZenCart to use Prestashop. Recently, there have been more and more people expect to export ZenCart to Prestashop. However, what factors promote ZenCart users to switch to use Prestashop? 

Firstly, let compare these two e-commerce platforms.


100% FREE No Monthly Fee – No Commission! 

  • No limitations on inventory amount, payment processing solutions, price rules, admin roles, number of stores, marketing features…
  • 100% scalable and customizable
  • Best SEO in the industry
  • Depend on 1,000,000 Open-source Community members
  • Make your e-shop available in 65 languages
  • 200 different countries use PrestaShop
  • Every day 100 new online stores are created


Free but what do you really get? 

  • Smaller Community on the forum
  • Less available extensions and themes
  • No demo available
  • Lack of communication with the community
  • No sophisticated reporting features
  • Only community support
  • Mediocre default templates

Secondly, come to market share of ZenCart and Prestashop


Based on the picture, we can see that Prestashop’s market share is much larger than ZenCart. From that, it can be seen that ZenCart is less popular than 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.

Now, if you are concern to migrate from Zen Cart to Prestashop, let LitExtension give you a hand.
