Default is Xcart Free Edition REALLY FREE or is it a FREE TRIAL

is xc5 free edition-completely functional and completely free FULL cart edition and able to accept payments through authorize.net? OR IS IT JUST A FREE TRIAL your message says free trial I though this is a FREE EDITION ? what are its limitations compared to xcart gold 4.3 for example number of products allowed, number of categories allowed etc..

If we start with the free edition to see if we like it-then what is the cost to upgrade to the business edition and what are the differences between the two? Also a little concerned as I have been trying to contact sales dept by phone an no one ever answers and no live chat either, as I have many questions. maybe I am calling the wrong number or at the wrong time zones-

Is there a number I can call to speak with a salesperson? and what time and time zone?

Thank u

The free edition is free not trial. But it is all you get at the time of installing it. You will not be able to upgrade it or its components unless you purchase standard license, business or whichever there is, and if you purchase additional modules they may not work on the version you have if designed for higher version so you will be forced to purchase license. Other than that I don't think there are any limitations compare to the business version. They are the same.

As far as comparing it to XC4 - even XC4.3.x has more features and functionality out of the box.

XC team is in Russia - Moscow time zone. Probably best way to contact them is to open pre-sale ticket.

Steve-To make sure I did not misunderstand your statement


"As far as comparing it to XC4 - even XC4.3.x has more features and functionality out of the box."

Which one has more functionality and features out of the box the xcart 5 free edition or xcart gold 4.3?

OK Steve,

sorry to bother u again-I just wanted to check with you before I go through A LOT of working entering products into the xcart 5 free edition;

Is it possible to import an xcart gold 4.3 database into the xcart 5 free edition?

Also-on my xcart 4.3 gold store -How do you do the MUST BE 18 TO ENTER OPTION I keep seeing on other sites?

There is no clear path to upgrade db from XC4 to XC5 yet, not sure if it is coming soon. QT offers this as a service as far as I know. But still not everything can be transferred from XC4 to XC5 since XC5 doesn't have all the features of XC4...

Ah I imported my products into my xc 4.3 using csv files and the import function

I saved those csv files-can I use the same csv files to import into the xc 5?

Also is there a limit on how many products and categories in xc 5 free edition?

Sorry-still going on on-Im guessing I will be up all night converting both stores and both carts lol
