I think that the software has allowed for our products to be displayed really beautifully. Our customers can see the products clearly and the shopping experience is seamless. It is easy to work with X-Cart and it allows my business the flexibility to grow in any direction we would like.
X-Cart provides a user friendly environment with data that are complete and up-to-date at any time, thus being a valuable asset for our customer care and supply chain teams but also providing the marketing department with useful information. On top of that, X-Cart makes it easy to showcase our products beautifully in our webshop.
X-Cart and FinestShops redefined how our company sells online when they created a website that allows our customers to custom-build their own dolls. Shoppers can now choose doll features such as hair color, eye color, and outfit styles right on our website, and orders are submitted directly to our warehouse for direct shipment to a customer.
The support offered is excellent and it is really easy to add extra features to our X-Cart store. We are constantly changing the design and with X-Cart support our day-to-day job gets easier by streamlining distribution and reports.
I have researched e-commerce solutions for over three months. We chose X-Cart. X-Cart has more features than most, a strong user base, many 3rd part mods, and good customer support. It is open source and inexpensive. We heavily customized it to integrate with our design tool, and we found it a pleasure to work with.
Our company has been working with X-Cart since 2004 and our team is intimately familiar with the robust feature set you get with the affordable license fee. X-Cart, although licensed, has a fully open code and we're able to do all kinds of customizations we'd like.

What about X-Cart Meetup in the UK?  Would you join?
We're considering to arrange X-Cart meetup in Europe. PayPal, our good friends and partners (who also sponsored the "Beer Meeting" in Chicago this June), kindly offer one of their offices to host the event: it's in Richmond upon Thames, Greater London. It will be a sin to miss such an opportunity. So let's try to arrange it in November! If you want this event to happen, if you're interested in it as much as we are, please spend a minute to fill in this short survey - you can see it all, no hidden questions appearing on the fly. Just 3 quick questions, with only the first one being mandatory.
Mobile point-of-sale is becoming one of the most rapidly adopted technologies amongst bricks-and-mortar retailers in 2014. Mobile POS enables retail companies to create a modern and streamlined checkout solution that ensures the best possible customer service. Join the upcoming webinar with UniteU to explore the ways of reducing retail sales friction, and study the showcase how mobile point of sale devices can increase the average order values and conversion rates within your brick-and-mortar stores.
Today I'm happy to introduce Carrie Saunders, a co-founder of the BCS Engineering company, very well-known to the users of X-Cart 4, to the community and merchants of X-Cart 5. Carrie comes to our marketplace with three new modules, and for sure, the most interesting one is "Customer Rewards", the module which you can find at least in every second store using X-Cart 4. What makes it so popular? A set of excellent features, convenient settings and affordable price. The last but not least, all the modules on X-Cart 5 marketplace are NOT encrypted, thus pretty customizable.
