    What Are the Benefits of Migrating to X-Cart?

    X-Cart approaches each project individually and builds the eCommerce experience around your business, not vice versa. It comes with an in-house dedicated development team and a full out of the box stack of services and integrations.

    Affordable Customization

    Both X-Cart and Shopify Plus allow for custom website build. The difference is how much money and effort you are ready to invest. X-Cart specializes in custom solutions since day 1, which allows us to deliver them quicker and charge less.

    Automotive-Centric eCommerce Solution

    Prebuilt automotive tools ensure better online store performance and are easier (and more affordable!) to maintain. X-Cart has built-in Year/Make/Model Search and VIN lookup that seamlessly integrate with the design theme for better website speed, faceted navigation, and accurate real-time product search for auto parts buyers. With X-Cart, you also get direct integrations with key automotive partners, such as SEMA Data, ASAP data network, AutoSync, Turn 14 Distribution, and more! 

    Personalized Customer Support

    While Shopify is a large company with millions of users worldwide, they can’t provide personalized human service and a dedicated manager to each of their clients at an affordable price. X-Cart can.

    Lower Maintenance Costs

    X-Cart saves you 50% of the eCommerce budget that you would normally spend on a Shopify Plus subscription. Invest into your business growth instead!
