I currently have a store that is running plain OSCommerce. Is there an easy way to upgrade to OSCMax?

Easy? Short answer - NO

The LONG and HARD way YES. Use a tool from MYSQLDIFF.ORG to "compare" the two databases (oscmax.sql file included with osCMax zip file and a backup of your current site) and it will generate a SQL that can be run on the OLD DB to update it to the NEW one.

...in phpmysql import your OLD database (into a NEW empty database) and run the SQL script created from MYSQLDIFF on it. Then create a NEW site with MAX (test site is okay-localhost works) and do the install - but don't import! Use the NEW database created above.

ALWAYS BACKUP! Then TEST, TEST, TEST!

Good Luck!
