    Default When you need an osCommerce to Magento migration plugin?

    osCommerce is a simple and a straightforward e-commerce and online store-management software that can be installed on any website that has PHP and MySQL installed. It is available as a free platform under the GNU General Public License. osCommerce is truly an open source program that is worked on continuously by thousands of developers. More than 260,000 different stores are currently operating through the osCommerce platform.

    Meanwhile, Magento is an eCommerce platform built as an open source solution owned by eBay. Powerful and robust with eCommerce features and tools, Magento provides businesses with a tremendous amount of flexibility when it comes to configuring and taking total control of their stores. With its very impressive track record plus its deep integration with eBay, there is no wonder why many businesses build their stores with Magento.
    Why should you migrate osCommerce to Magento?
    osCommerce's client satisfaction is just 84% while Magento's accounts for 90%.
    What makes Magento Better Than osCommerce?

    • Update

    Compared with osCommerce, Magento is a pretty new software for eCommerce, and its developers go further to enhance their creation with new and important features. Therefore, the program's updates keep coming every 10 to 15 days. However, the updates of the other one is much longer.
    • Cost

    Both Magento and osCommerce are open source software free to install and use. However, in Magento, you are able to use the community version for free, but if you want some supporting features, they have to purchase executive versions which may cost you a certain amount of money. Therefore, this one is a good option for people who are running a big scale business and can afford it, but not fit in small business with low budget.
    • Multiple Stores

    In this aspect, Magento surpasses the other a little, because with it you are allowed to establish and manage multiple stores in multiple languages with different approaches to different kinds of customers. Nevertheless, with osCommerce, people can build and manage only one store to sell their products.
    • Payment Gateway & Discounts

    Magento allows users to receive payments for their online sale via almost all payment methods, so when it comes to payment gateway, it has huge advantages over osCommerce that gives users only a few options to receive payments. Besides, it is easier to find discounts and special offers with Magento offering coupons, SEO URLs, product summary and additional features that are not provided by another solution.
    So, what to do now?

    From above comparison, it can be concluded that Magento is a better choice for people who are holding big scale business. If you want to try Magento instead of osCommerce, let get an osCommerce to Magento database migration tool by LitExtension.

OsCommerce has strong development period. After ten years, osCommerce lost leading position in users' heart. OsCommerce v2.2 released at the end of 2010. However, it is difficult to change this situation. On the other hand, continous development of Magento pass up other platforms. Magento will become the leading shopping cart in the future.
