5 Things X-Cart Offers That WooCommerce Doesn’t
Scalable and Reliable System
Your X-Cart store scales properly. Whether you are planning to expand your catalog or expecting an increase in traffic, we got you covered. Don’t worry about hitting your limits or potential downtime! With X-Cart, you get a stable yet configurable online shop bundled with a team of hosting experts monitoring your server daily and guaranteed 99,99% uptime.
WooCommerce-based stores do not scale well to changing business demands. That causes their owners to experience risky outcomes. For example, updating your catalog or sudden boost in traffic can quickly exhaust your storage space and slow page-load speed, which may lead to crashes and lost sales.
Ease of Customization and Upgrades
With X-Cart, you don’t need any coding skills. X-Cart provides custom development services in-house, which means you get professional assistance from the original platform developers. Easy and smooth upgrades require just one click, no matter how custom your website is.
While WooCommerce allows for extensive customization, you need either advanced coding skills or to hire third-party freelancers to make modifications to your core. In addition, extension upgrades cause incompatibility failures due to the difference in expertise level of those who developed them.
You can easily access X-Cart customer support via 24/7 phone, chat, ticket system, and email. Our in-house customer success team and support engineers work round the clock to ensure you get help whenever you need it.
Fixing issues on WooCommerce requires relentless googling and browsing of help forums. The support is available mainly through the ticket system and response times are long, so many of the issues have to be self-solved.
X-Cart comes with rich core functionality and fully compatible plugins. Our clients report they save up to 50% of their eCommerce budget when setting up and maintaining their stores on X-Cart. Stop spending money on costly fixes. Invest into growth instead!
WooCommerce core is free, but the build is very basic. Any essential feature you want to add is a paid plugin, which leads to a high setup cost. As you grow, hiring developers for customization projects and fixing constant plugin incompatibilities add to that cost. Solving security issues caused by third-party code and upgrading hosting plans every time you hit the storage limit adds more.

Which is better for eCommerce: X-Cart or WooCommerce?
X-Cart specializes in eCommerce and is built with business entrepreneurs in mind. WooCommerce, on the contrary, was built as an eCommerce element to be later integrated into the WordPress blogging platform. Merchants choose X-Cart for its flexibility, scalability, compatible plugins, and 24/7 live customer support.
Is X-Cart a free shopping cart?
X-Cart is a paid service yet cost-effective. While WooCommerce allows you to get started for free, it often lacks features that are essential for an online store. Extending its basic functionality is quite costly. X-Cart, on the other hand, comes with extensive default functionality and allows you to keep the cost of ownership down.
Can I migrate from WooCommerce to X-Cart without putting my business on hold?
Absolutely! Our engineers have developed a secure 2-step replatforming process. The initial step is performed on our testing servers, so your store stays up and running throughout the entire process and keeps getting orders. After your review and confirmation, we move the store copy to our live server and perform the final data synchronization. Your store will be closed only for the period of updating DNS records, which usually takes a few hours. But this is necessary and inevitable regardless of the platform you are migrating to.
We have a detailed guide on replatforming that explains the entire migration process in simple terms. If you have questions, feel free to contact our team.
Everything You Need to Know About Switching Ecommerce Platforms
We have put together the Complete 6-Step Guide to Ecommerce Replatforming to help you decide if you need to move away from your current platform and what the process of migration involves. Dive in for best practices and top tips backed with real-life customer experiences.
Can I perform the migration myself using an automated WooCommerce to X-Cart migration tool?
Yes. You can perform the WooCommerce data transfer with a store migration app by Cart2Cart or LitExtension.
However, using our replatforming service can give you an extra advantage. We have an established workflow for migration projects that allows us to perform migrations at a lower price than you would pay for an automated shopping cart migration service. Additionally, our replatforming experts can also migrate your custom-developed design and features along with the basic data. Post-launch testing and professional support included.
Feedback from X-Cart Partners
“I have been very happy with X-Cart. It is a huge improvement over my previous cart, and it is much more modern and secure. It has been a great experience working with your team to get things migrated and working. Everyone has been very responsive and helpful.
So far, the best thing has been all the different features/options. There are so many new things I can do.
“Before moving to X-Cart 5, we investigated a few other options with other companies. However, we found that X-Cart was the most flexible and customizable shopping cart compared to the others.”
“X-Cart is an all-in-one solution. The same guys who develop the software also do your custom development. I think that’s the best way to go so you don’t have people coding on top of other people’s code. Honestly, I don’t see us functioning outside of X-Cart.”
“X-Cart ended up having everything we needed. It was easy to find my way around without needing a lot of help, without needing prompting — it felt intuitive. As someone who doesn’t write code, I was able to customize the things that we needed and ‘build the plane while we’re flying,’ so to speak.”
“Working with X-Cart for years and I haven’t regretted it once. I can write a long review about what, why, and how but in two words: excellent choice! You get professional support without any fuss.”
“As I anticipated, it has everything we wanted and even more. As a result, we can focus and work on our content and provide our clients with a better shopping experience.”
“X-Cart 5 is PCI-DSS compliant using Authorize.Net with the Accept.js module. The new version will save us money on credit card processing.”
“We tested out several marketplace apps and found X-Cart, by far, the easiest way to migrate from a Woocommerce set up. The process was simple and the staff were extremely helpful. Not only that, once the migration was complete, we’ve found that X-Cart is also a joy to use.”
