Migrating from WooCommerce to osCommerce can be a complex process, but here is a general guide on how to do it:

  1. Backup your current WooCommerce store: Before making any changes, it is essential to backup your WooCommerce store to ensure you have a copy of all your data in case anything goes wrong during the migration process.
  2. Export your WooCommerce products: You can export your products, customers, and orders from WooCommerce using the built-in export tool. Go to the WooCommerce settings, navigate to the 'Tools' tab, and then click on the 'Export' sub-tab. Select the data you want to export and download the file.
  3. Set up an osCommerce store: Install osCommerce on your hosting server and set up your store with all the necessary configurations.
  4. Import your WooCommerce data to osCommerce: Use the import tool in osCommerce to import the product, customer, and order data that you exported from your WooCommerce store. Make sure to map the fields correctly to avoid any data loss or discrepancies.
  5. Customize your osCommerce store: Customize your osCommerce store to match the design and functionality of your previous WooCommerce store. Install any necessary plugins or extensions to add features that were available in WooCommerce but not in osCommerce.
  6. Test your new osCommerce store: Once you have completed the migration process, thoroughly test your new osCommerce store to ensure that all data has been successfully transferred, and everything is working as expected. Check for any errors or issues and fix them before going live.
  7. Redirect your old WooCommerce store to the new osCommerce store: After testing and confirming that everything is working correctly, set up proper redirects from your old WooCommerce store to your new osCommerce store to ensure that your customers can find the new site easily.
  8. Go live: Once everything is set up and tested, make your new osCommerce store live and start promoting it to your customers.


It is important to note that migrating from WooCommerce to osCommerce may result in some data loss or discrepancies due to differences in the platforms. It is recommended to test the migration process thoroughly and seek assistance from professionals if needed.
