Zen Cart to PrestaShop Migration V1.4.1

Zen Cart to PrestaShop Migration


* Not compatible with PrestaShop Cloud.

The module only imports default Zencart information, it does not include any modifications made (new fields, changed image path), or information from 3rd party modules

Due to differences in structure and capabilities of Zen Cart Vs. Prestashop, certain parts may not be imported exactly the same and will require manual changes.

I.E.  Attributes with discounts, text boxes and file uploads.

The module requires file_get_content() or CURL to be enabled on the Prestashop server.

Importing large stores can take several hours, make sure your hosting company allows to increase the default PHP timeout settings.

We are happy to provide a one time free installation assistance and full support with the purchase of any module (does not include customization of the module, or integration with 3rd party modules.).

Additional installation assistance requests, such as module / prestashop upgrade or accidental file deletion, will require a fee:.
    - $25 for modules priced $0 - $99
    - $50for modules priced $100+
