(If using X-Cart Enterprise) Use your own migration solution.

Note that switching your store platform to X-Cart with the automated migration services by Magnetic One or LitExtension is likely to require more extensive involvement on your part: these services ensure the transfer from one store to the other of all the common data types, but you will have to check and re-adjust all the settings to implement your business specifics in your new X-Cart store.
Use your own migration solution
If you are an X-Cart developer or have a team of professional developers willing to help you with the transfer of your store data to X-Cart (X-Cart Enterprise), you can develop (or have developed for you) an extension/add-on that will allow you to move your store data from your current platform to X-Cart via an API.
