The X-cart website offers many products but for some reason gives little information about the company itself. It is possible that the product was developed in Russia. The company claims X-Cart is used by over 14,000 online stores.
There are multiple grades of X-Cart products (Gold and Pro). Once you purchase the software, it must be installed on a server (you must procure hosting). There is an admin back-end from which you manage products, customers, the store’s layout and so on. The company encourages users to contact their technical support team to respond to questions.
X-Cart is a PHP and MySQL database software product. As with many shopping carts, in order to use X-Cart, you must create a template site design and stick with that framework.
Pages can be PHP-based meaning that many sites using it can have PHP URLs. However, you do have the ability to create static HTML pages. Note that these pages are based on the product names so your page might be called something such as “www.yourstore.com/p-934-black-shoes.html” which is still good for search engine spiders and optimization. It seems that depending on how you use the software, some URLs might be underscores and others are hyphens.
You can alter the important tags and make many modifications as needed.
The page naming ability of the cart is a bit limited which may turn away some potential web store owners.
After visiting and analyzing their client websites, it is clear that Google sees most of their PHP URL pages as repetitive and barely indexed them. For this reason, focusing on the HTML version is important.
As with some other companies, X-Cart does not offer or recommend outright a merchant account company so you must find one on your own.
The X-Cart is used by a large variety of online stores. It has many features that are search engine friendly.
