From ZenCart you will have to use DataFlow functionality.  You can read more about DataFlow import/export functionality in this blog post.

ZenCart is basically a fork of OScommerce.

So I would read this post http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/14025/

My experience is that it is possible with some basic php and mysql knowledge.

Hope that helps!

Are there any plans in the pipeline to release a Zencart import tool? I don’t want to waste my time creating one if someone else is already developing it. smile

Thanks
Matt

I couldn’t even begin to dream up a program for doing this upgrade.  I need to get 3700 items from my zen-cart db to Magento.  I don’t care about moving attributes or quantity discounts (qty discounts would be nice) .

Help! Help!

You may wish to use Cart2Cart - shopping cart migration service
www.shopping-cart-migration.com

It supports migrating from Zen Cart to Magento.

Your thousands of items will be moved like a charm with attributes:)
Qty discounts aren’t supported yet.
