What Data Can Be Migrated from Zen Cart to Shopify
Clear Data On Target Store Before Migration
If your target store has no data, this option is definitely not for you. In case your target store contains something like products, customers, orders, etc, this option allows you to delete this current data automatically based on the selected entities instead of doing it manually. Test data after Demo migration will be deleted as well.
For example: You need to migrate your store to desire shopping cart. Your desire shopping cart has already been installed, but it still maintained a small amount of customer and product data. You want to delete those data, but it is very hard to do manually. Save time and effort by choosing this option. It helps you delete data from your Target Store based on the selected entities for migration.
This option supports preserving Order IDs on a Target Store after the migration.
For example: You have OrderID #666 on Source Store. It will be migrated the same ID #666 to the Target Store. However, if this option is not chosen, the Order IDs on the Target store will be different from the ones on your Source store.
Note: You must clear current data on Target Store by selecting: Clear Current Data On Target Store Before Migration, option before perform migration. Support Target Stores: Magento, Prestashop, OpenCart and Shopify.
With this option you will be able to migrate additional images of products, not just the thumbnail image.
