If you are an X-Cart v4 (aka XC4) store-based owner and want to upgrade it to X-Cart v5 (aka XC5), you can do it using the X-Cart v4 to v5 Data Migration Wizard. This wizard is aimed at helping a store owner to migrate data from an XC4-based store to XC5. Besides that, it will be necessary to install a new X-Cart 5 store beforehand and re-implement any possible custom features manually afterward.

A store owner has three possible routes to do the upgrade:

  1. Do the upgrade on their own (DIY option);
