Wix Stores: Migrating from Other eCommerce Platforms to Wix Stores

5 min read
The Cart2Cart app helps you migrate to Wix from over 80 eCommerce platforms so you can create your dream store. To check if your platform is supported, click here.
You can add the Cart2Cart app to your Wix site for free, but Cart2Cart charges a fee to perform the migration. The exact price is determined by the platform you are transferring from, which elements you choose to migrate, what optional extra services you select and more. You can run a free demo, including migrating a limited number of elements to your Wix store, to see how the Cart2Cart app works.
During the migration process, Cart2Cart gives you a preview, where you see an exact price breakdown before you commit to any changes or pay any fees. In addition, you can click here to get a cost estimate from Cart2Cart.
Before you begin:
  • Make sure you added Wix Stores to your site. Learn how
  • To migrate store orders, you must first upgrade to a Premium plan or Studio plan that allows you to accept payments.

Step 1 | Add the Cart2Cart App and Select an Account

To start the migration process, go to the Wix App Market and add the Cart2Cart app. Then, make sure the email associated with the relevant Wix account is selected. 
If you close the migration tab at any stage, you can access the Cart2Cart dashboard from the Manage Apps tab in your site's dashboard.

Step 2 | Source and Target Cart Setup

Throughout the migration process, the store you are migrating from is referred to as the source cart. The target cart is your Wix store. In this step you select both carts and provide the necessary permissions to access the source cart. For example, to migrate from Shopify, you need to provide an API Password.
This step is different for each source cart. Refer to the instructions on the right in the Cart2Cart migration screen.
