For many years WP e-Commerce has been a true friend for the e-merchants who just started their business.

How to Move from WP e-Commerce to WooCommerce?

When online retailers decide on WooCommerce, afterwards they have a rather responsible task to choose an appropriate method for migration with no troubles. Three main ways are possible to make the plans come true:

1. Copy/Paste. A method which saves your money, but takes much time and efforts.

2. Developer hire. This way is profitable for those who don’t want to perform switch by themselves. But take into consideration the fact that the service is not free and e-merchants have to be ready to pay quite expensive sum.
