5 Things X-Cart Offers That Adobe Commerce Doesn’t
Consistent and Stable Architecture
X-Cart is an easily upgradeable shopping cart solution, no matter how custom your website is. What’s more, X-Cart provides all professional services in-house, which means you’ll get support from the original developers, unlike Magento where working with third-party web development agencies is standard practice.
Adobe Commerce (Magento) allows for extensive customization. However, you’ll need a third-party expert or agency to do multiple updates and upgrades to your core.
Personal Human Service
X-Cart offers easily accessible customer support 24/7 for all users + a dedicated project manager for authorized customers.
Adobe provides plenty of toolkits under one brand umbrella and doesn’t offer a transparent support system. If you think they have a single point of contact for customer care, it is not the case. In many ways, Adobe Commerce is still run as a separate platform and has not been fully integrated into the company. Besides, Adobe Commerce doesn’t offer support for its free edition — Magento Open Source.
The X-Cart interface is easier to manage on a daily basis. You can add products and create new content and promotions with no hassle, while your internal team can respond quicker and support initiatives without outside help.
Given that Adobe Commerce has a steep learning curve, you may have difficulty updating and syncing information even if you are not a newbie. Some merchants also claim that its interface is difficult to navigate.
Although X-Cart and Adobe Commerce (Magento) both allow for extensive customization, the difference is how much money and effort you are ready to invest. X-Cart platform is less expensive to develop, maintain, host, and customize. Plus the professional X-Cart crew is ready to jump on your project anytime.
Adobe Commerce can be a costly solution, especially for small businesses, depending on the size of your online business, your store’s AOV (average order value), and annual online revenue. Not to mention long-term maintenance costs.

Does it take long to migrate from Magento to X-Cart?
It doesn’t. Migration to X-Cart won’t take more than a month — compared to three months with Magento. Your store will be up throughout the whole Magento data migration process. Switching DNS records, however, takes at least a couple of hours for the changes to propagate. It’s a necessary evil.

Feedback from X-Cart Partners
“When researching options, we considered many factors ultimately resulting in X-Cart over Magento. We found that while Magento is more popular, it’s not better.
“Compared to Magento, the underlying framework is extremely stable. Let’s think about this for a second. The Symphony framework went through years of improvements to get to the stable state that they are and so has X-Cart. Magento has recreated their framework so technically, in my opinion, it would take a few years for the new Magento framework to be as stable and efficient as the Symphony framework & X-Cart. With a number of malicious attacks on eCommerce websites, stability is the most important.”
“The X-Cart Team is excellent. Our Migration to their Platform was seamless with the Tech Staff at X-Cart handling all the work.”
