The shopping cart itself and the web design on it (including any stock photography used or
styling of your business name using text) are owned by us so cannot be transferred to another
provider or hosting environment. However, you can export your orders, customers and products using
the built in tools in your store admin. You can then import that into your new shopping cart system.
There are no contracts on Ozcart hosted ecommerce solutions, but you do
need to make sure that any bills that have been generated by the system are fully paid before you can cancel. You
cannot cancel an account with an outstanding invoice in the system. So make sure you tell us early enough or you
will end up paying an unnecessary extra payment.
