    Importing from OS Commerce

    Hello,

    I'm looking to leave my lumbering 1,500 product OS Commerce installation in the dust and would like to move on to SS. It's been a couple years since I've used SS. How easy is it to import/migrate my OSCommerce store over to SunShop? We're talking 1,500 products, users, categories, prices, etc.

    Well you can either import from text files, or we can create a conversion script for you to move all of the data over. We are actually supposed to develop conversion scripts for the public soon so we can probably give you a good deal on a custom script.

    be aware that importing will require creating numerious different tables and is very cumberson and time consuming, despite what SS says, it is not an easy or simple process...speaking from experience

    Like I stated though, we can create a one click importer that will seamlessly transfer all of your data over from OS Commerce.

    Guys, you can open a quote request if you are interested. If a few are interested the cost can be split.

    Assuming you are running OS commerce as well there is a new import service that will move all of your data to SunShop called Cart2Cart. We can also perform it at a discounted rate as well.

    Thank you for advice! I've checked the service Cart2Cart which I found very useful. I also came across File2Cart developed by the same company and it its specialized in product import (supports csv). I am planning to try this one. If you can share some info about File2Cart as well I will be grateful.
