If you need a tool to manage a website, this is a good place to start. If you aren't ready for something of this caliber it might not be meant for your business. It's a stepping stone and you need to be ready to learn and it may require a bit more attention.

X-Cart

X-cart uses Smarty Templates in a PHP environment which means there are many developers who could probably pick it up relatively quickly to provide new features. The smarty template engine is very robust and well documented, and the cost of x-cart is very low which makes it easy for anyone to get started with their e-commerce business.It is a really great e-commerce software and suitable for every business. I actually cannot find any serious objection to what it does. They regularly update it, add new features, fix flaws, offer support. The software itself offers many integrations for shipping and payments, everything you need for sales. Although it covers many things, there will always be something missing, because many things happen in between customer visit and final delivery. Therefore, if you plan to expand your business, also plan to expand your X-Cart - but do not worry, it won't be hard.

Pros

  • Tons of reporting tools
  • Easy to navigate
  • Multiple user profiles

  • For everyone. From small to huge business you get everything out of box. Just setup company details, payment and shipping methods and you are ready to go.
  • Upgradable. There are many plugins one can integrate with X-Cart. Over time, many of them became part of the software, and you are one click away to enable them.
  • Well organized code. It uses Smarty template engine, which I find great, specially for debugging (famous Webmaster mode).

Cons

  • Not everyone can navigate easily without training
  • Some reports can be fairly large and take lots of time to download
Donovan Farmer profile photo
  • Creating new plugins the way X-Cart wants is maybe not complicated, but hard to implement because there are no hooks. One has to manually change each file. This is similar to patching the core and therefore one has to know basics of web development.
  • Even if you get everything styled correctly with base skin, there is a bunch of unused styles you have to cope with. Start skin should be much cleaner. You may find thousands excess lines of code.

Alternatives Considered

More customization and ability to work with web designers make it an easy tool to manage projects and promote growth of your store front. It may not be as user friendly as others but it has more flexibility by far.

Return on Investment

  • Easy to use customer service tools
  • Invaluable reporting abilities
  • Tier users makes it easy to manage employees
Donovan Farmer profile photo
  • Flexibility in presentation as well as functionality
  • Full open source software allows for unlimited possibilities with the store function, though some developers who create modules do encode their modules which have errors in their code which therefore can't be fixed
  • A fully functional professional level application at a fraction of the cost of similar applications such as magento.
