Re: X-Cart become subscription based, so what should I do?
Compare with other players in the field and you may find that is not actually that much. It is a different question what you are getting for it.
However other subscription based carts will charge you the same or even more per month and on top of that you still have to get tons of additional modules to run the business - of course again on monthly subscription.
There are some one-time fee carts still available some for like $2000 purchase price.
