    Moving from Miva to Oscommerce, how?

    I currently run my site using Miva Merchant. I just purchased a second domain name and am going to be starting a seperate site with similiar products, but different pricing structures, design etc to try and tap the market better.

    I basically want to be able to import my Miva Merchant data into Oscommerce, is this possible?

    I am using 4.16

    When I purchased the site it was running Miva. Since then I have done lots of mods etc, but it is $20 every time I turn around and Oscommerce looks nice.

    I did this...moved from Miva and am now running an osCommerce store. Unfortunately, i never found a script to do this, and my programming is not very good.

    I reentered each product.

    I know this doesn't help you, but at least you won't be alone!

    If you look under modules you'll see that you can export products to a flat file. You should then be able to import them into a mysql database for use with OSC.
