How long will it take?

ZenCart Read

Very Fast 10+ entities per second.

The ZenCart read uses direct database connection, the only thing that will slow it down is the size of your product images and your existing hosting!

Shopify Write

Very Slow ~1 product per second with images, ~2 orders or customers per second.

Shopify throttles API create calls to a maximum of 2 per second which combined with them not allowing multiple entities to be created at once will mean this process will take a long time if you have a lot of data.

$39Unlimited data 3 reads and writes.
(valid for 28 days from date of purchase)
Any combination of full reads or updates allowed including changing destination systems.
Error Logging and Data Cleansing
EcomExodus fixes then reports on many validation errors when reading and writing your data, allowing you to make a choice to repair the data or accept the automated fixes (where possible).
Having 3 reads and writes allows you to repair those duplicate SKU's and incorrect email addresses and re-do your transfer.

Get updated data?

ZenCart does not have database storage for anything like "Last Updated Date", so there is no way to get changed data.

However EcomExodus will track what has been transferred and can GET ALL NEW products, customers and orders added since the last full read if required.

NOTE: EcomExodus has a simple product arrangement, you pay for reads and writes either full or partial. $39 3 reads, 3 writes.

What is transferred?

WARNING: Shopify throttles create calls to a maximum of 2 per second which combined with them not allowing multiple entities to be created at once will mean this process will take a long time if you have a lot of data. No such issue exists when leaving Shopify, they allow 250 entities to be read per call.

Zen Cart Data Entity Maps to Shopify Notes
Languages Since Shopify doesn't support multiple languages out of the box only the default language is read from ZenCart.
Product Variants  
Product Options  
Product Images Product images are encoded and uploaded to Shopify as part of the create product process, depending on file sizes this does make product creation in Shopify slower, ~1 per second.
Product Inventory  
Product Categories Shopify uses collections rather than a hierarchical category system. The transfer will create each of the categories as a collection in sequence, eg. DVD->Family will become 2 collections with each product in the Family category assigned 2 collection entries, DVD and Family.
Product Category Images Shopify does not support images for it's collections.
Product Reviews Unfortunately Shopify doesn't support reviews out of the box and their app or others which do aren't supported by the API. A customer csv has to be imported at a later date to transfer your reviews.
Product Manufacturers  
Manufacturer Images Shopify does not support vendor images.
Customer Addresses  
Customer Address Formats Zen Cart customer address formats are not supported in Shopify.
Customer Passwords Zen Cart passwords are encoded with a 1 way MD5 algorithm, while there are methods which can reverse a password they are unreliable.
Order Items  
Order Payment Types  
Order Credit Card Details Shopify does not allow the storing of credit card information.
