    5 Things X-Cart Offers That Adobe Commerce Doesn’t

    Native Automotive Solution

    X-Cart offers a range of native automotive features that can significantly enhance the performance of your online business and are much easier and cost-effective to maintain. The X-Cart store has built-in Year/Make/Model Search and VIN lookup. These tools can be easily integrated with the design theme to ensure faster website speed, faceted navigation, and accurate real-time product search for auto parts customers. Additionally, X-Cart provides direct integrations with key automotive partners like SEMA Data, ASAP Data Network, AutoSync, Turn 14 Distribution, and others to streamline and automate your internal business processes.

    Adobe Commerce

    Although Adobe Commerce is also used as an eCommerce solution for automotive businesses, this platform may not be customizable enough to fit the needs of your growing business. According to sellers’ reviews, the main challenges with Adobe Commerce are slow website performance, inefficient catalog management, and few to no customization options.

    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

    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 Commerce

    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.

    Simple Navigation

    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.

    Adobe Commerce

    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.

    Affordable Maintenance

    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

    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.
