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.

Is storing credit card numbers in a database allowed? Basically you can store it but it has to be protected in accordance with PCI DSS standards. Having this information in your database makes you an extremely attractive target for hackers. Do you think you can protect it? Think of it better. Your server and network also must be secure. Paranoidly secure. And your business processes too. And If any piece of this puzzle is not PCI compliant, you risk being hit with up to $200 000 fine. But does it mean you should forever forget about the convenience of storing credit cards ? No it does not. The point is that "storing credit card numbers" and "storing credit cards" is not the same.
