Migrating from another Cart

I'm a few weeks away from migrating an existing store to CS Cart. The url structure is different in this way:

http://www.mysite.com/products/productname.html will be http://www.mysite.com/productname.html

http://www.mysite.com/categories/categoryname will be http://www.mysite.com/categoryname.html

I'm concerned about changing the urls because I have good ranking with my top key phrases. I think I should keep the same url structure so I am wondering if there is a way to customize the urls using the SEO addon.


We have a large Joomla/VM to CS-Cart conversion happening as well and this was a concern to my client as well. The way I'm handling it is by creating a SQL script that will search the CS-Cart DB for the matching SKU's and then take the SEO META data from their ARTIO JoomSef and add/replace what's in CS-Cart.

You should be able to do the same with whatever cart your converting from.

Hello novista,

I can suggest that you should use the Cart2Cart online shopping cart migration service. For more information please refer to this post in our blog: Easy migration to CS-Cart | eCommerce Blog on Running an Online Marketplace
