X-Cart 4.7.12 Released: PHP7.4 Support, TaxJar, Authy, and more.
Remember when we announced that there were some updates coming to X-Cart 4? Well, we’re rolling them out, and so excited to share with you!
We’re proud to offer our newest version – X-Cart v4.7.12 – for you, our classic admirers!
Lucky for you, it is faster, stronger, and equipped with even more new integrations. Our goal with these changes is to make your X-Cart Classic experience smoother, helping to improve your shoppers’ journey overall.
Now, what makes X-Cart 4.7.12 stronger than its competitors?
PHP 7.4 Support
When you upgrade your server – your site’s capacity inevitably grows. PHP 7.4 is the newest version and it’s actively supported by our team, unlike PHP 5.6, 7.0, and 7.1. If you’ve waited till your X-Cart plan could support it, the wait is over!
You’ll see significant changes in performance, speed, and your behind the scenes developer – some new features our development team is geeking out over, invisible yet extremely beneficial for your store.
New Integrations and Add-ons
We’re pleased to add four new integrations and add-ons that can make a huge impact for your store and site.
Social Feeds Add-on
Social media marketing has proved to be an effective and affordable means of promotion, as well as building brand awareness and loyal customers. If you don’t believe us, be sure to check out our comprehensive Social Media Marketing Guide.
We’ve been partners with TaxJar for quite a while now and we’ve had integrations for some versions of X-Cart 4 and all versions of X-Cart 5.
We have taken the time and effort to improve the existing integration to work optimally on all latest versions of X-Cart 4.
With this add-on, you can connect your X-Cart store to TaxJar in seconds and save yourself hours every time you need to prepare and file tax returns. Taxes are automatically calculated and applied by state, and all the data is located in one place. As TaxJar says, “Put your taxes on autopilot.”
Two-factor Authentication with Authy
Whenever a password is not enough protection, the most efficient way of increasing security is 2FA, or two-factor authentication.
This add-on integrates your X-Cart Classic store with Authy.com, which works on any iPhone, Android or Blackberry device. The integration will send a secure code to your mobile device to add another level of security for your store.
In this release we’ve exterminated a few bugs as well as improved the workflow for several add-ons: Product Notifications, Upselling Products, AvaTax, Recommended Products, Amazon Feeds, XMultiCurrency, Facebook E-Commerce.
