XC4 to XC5 Migration wizard
page last edited on 06 February 2017
The module XC4 to XC5 Migration wizard provides an easy method for migrating your X-Cart 4 based store to X-Cart 5. It allows for the automated transfer of both the data and the settings, which gets your old store up and running on the new platform in as little as a few minutes. The wizard supports the migration of products, categories, users, memberships and orders - all you need to do is specify what exactly needs to be moved. It also moves your address zones, payment methods and shipping methods helping you to avoid the time-consuming store setup after you switch to X-Cart 5. Another important thing the wizard can do for you is to perform an overall check of the feature set provided by your new X-Cart 5 store matching it against the feature set of your X-Cart 4 store; if it finds any missing tools or integrations, it will provide you with a list of X-Cart 5 modules that can be enabled or purchased to replace them on the new platform. This way, after completing the transfer of your data and settings in a few easy wizard steps, the only things left for you to complete on the new store will be to adjust your store’s look and feel, enable or install the missing modules and configure the settings that are not present in X-Cart 4.
