X-Cart is a commercial open source shopping cart platform distributed through the SaaS solution, or via download package. It was originally released in 2000 by Creative Technologies LLC, a Russian web development company that later worked on Ecwid. Upon release, it was the world's first PHP shopping cart software.[1] X-Cart is used by over 30 000 e-stores.[2]


Ruslan Fazlyev founded X-Cart in 2000. X-Cart targeted a lower price segment than the existing e-commerce solutions such as IBM WebSphere Commerce. Later, in 2009, Creative Technologies released a freemium e-commerce solution Ecwid in addition to the X-Cart line.[3][4]

X-Cart cloud-based solution named X-Cart NEXT was released on 6 March 2013.[5] Later it was renamed to Cloud.[2] By September 2014 X-Cart Cloud was listed by SitePoint as one of the best hosted e-commerce platforms.[6] Among other features, X-Cart Cloud allows certified developers to add custom functionality to customers' hosted shops.[2][7]

X-Cart offers three plans for its downloadable version and four tariffs for X-Cart Cloud.[8][9]


X-Cart offers integration with shipping carriers, such as Australia Post, Canada Post, FedEx, UPS, and USPS. An additional X-Payments module makes it PA-DSS certified and adds support for 39 more payment providers in addition to the 14 in the basic package. It also ensures fraud screening for payments.[9][10][11]
