The quickest and the easiest way to transfer all your data from old Magento installation to the new 1.7.02 is to use Cart2Cart migration service. It will import products, categories, customers, orders and other related information automatically.  This method is highly secure, and will protect you from data looses and duplicates.
If you had already installed version 1.7.02 , it is recommended to proceed with a free demo migration to see how the service work.

Yep, Cart2Cart is probably the best way to import a fresh site.  There are some limitations in the service though that I’ve noticed - for example it apparently doesn’t migrate URL paths and such for SEO purposes.

I’m a fan of upgrades myself as opposed to imports, of course smile

What’s your use case, out of curiosity?

It will take about 15 minutes (Depending on number of orders) to simply upgrade your database. I am not sure why everyone is telling you to use Cart2Cart for Magento -> Magento.

Hello,

You should update your Magento version 1.6 to the version 1.7.0.2
You can find how to do it here:

Hello,

just a short information update from Cart2Cart Team. We now support SEO URLs migration within Magento. So you can switch from 1.6 to 1.7 version and save all your links. Currently we support this option for Magento versions starting from 1.1.x up to 1.7.x

Please feel free to check this page for more details.

Best regards,
MagneticOne Team
