I have a customer database from Volusion that I would like to copy over to Magento.  Is there an import feature?

The import/export functionality in Magento is called DataFlow.

You can read more about this feature in this blog post.

Wow, why would you want to go from Volusion to Magento? I thought about trying Volusion after I saw all the problems Magento has.
Is it just the cost?

We’re moving over because we need more bandwidth (Volusion has to be hosted on Volusion’s servers), and because Volusion isn’t open source (I’m a capable programmer, and I found that restrictive).  Magento has its problems, but at least I can fight them - Volusion had a few nitpicky things that I couldn’t do anything about.

In case if someone needs to migrate database from Volusion to Magento - Cart2Cart is the service which enables you to do it automatically.

Cart2cart is an unique shopping migration service which allows you to migrate products, categories, attributes, manufacturers, customers, orders and other data from one shopping cart to different one.
