Can I migrate a Cartweaver 3.5 PHP database/store, using PayPal as the gateway, into PowerStore without much pain?

They have about 800 products, including subscriptions, books and products. Their current site is: It's client managed, so it's sparse on images. They HATE the Cartweaver admin/editing interface. And we hate the time consuming, code-driven Cartweaver update procedure. PowerStore looks like a good solution, but moving a sizeable database might prove to be a challenge?

I dont know the structure of the cart weaver database, so cant really say.

Export the cart weaver database as a CSV file.

Experiment with adding some products to Power Store, then export the power store tables as CSV files.

you can do a comparison of the table structure this way to reformat the Cart weaver data to meat the power store structure.

NOTE: don't edit the CSV files using Excel, use a text editor instead
