AJAX-Powered ProductCart v3 Shopping Cart Software Released

New Version of E-Commerce System Includes Many New Features

Early Impact, an ecommerce software development company, released a new version of its popular shopping cart software. ProductCart v3 brings a number of innovative new features to online stores around the world, including an AJAX-enhanced interface.

ProductCart v3 is the culmination of extensive work aimed at bringing a new level of sophistication and professionalism to small business e-commerce Web sites, and incorporates many features resulting from feedback received over the years by the thousands of stores that use Early Impact’s shopping cart.

Among the many new features:

- Full support for Cascading Style Sheets. The entire storefront was updated to support CSS, providing tremendous design flexibility when creating or updating a ProductCart-powered store.

- Supplier management, drop shipping & back-ordering. ProductCart can now handle complex scenarios such as orders containing products that are not immediately available (back-ordered) or products that are drop-shipped by a third party.

- Unlimited pricing levels. ProductCart v3 allows businesses to create unlimited pricing categories and assign customers to a specific one (e.g. Preferred Customers, Gold Members, International Resellers, etc.). When the customer logs in, the correct price is shown.

- AJAX-enhanced interface. Learning how many results a search will return before even clicking on the “Search” button. Getting product information by simply mousing over a product name, without visiting the product details page. Finding out the products contained in a category without visiting the category page. It’s the power of interacting with the store database without the “click & wait” that is typically part of the Internet experience.

- Advanced Cross Selling. Cross-sold products can be added to the cart along with the main product. Store managers can also promote product bundles (e.g. main product + an accessory) and provide customers with a built-in discount when they purchase the bundle.

- UPS and FedEx label printing. Store managers can now print UPS and FedEx shipping labels right from within ProductCart’s Control Panel, eliminating one of the most common order processing bottlenecks.

- And many other features including: Multiple product images, unlimited product options, special customer fields (e.g. reseller number, date of birth, etc.), a completely redesigned Control Panel, which now includes AJAX-enhanced search features allow you to quickly find products or customers.

“Initial response from our customers has been terrific. ProductCart v3 is allowing them to take their e-commerce stores to a new level of quality and profitability.” said Massimo Arrigoni, CEO of Early Impact. “It will be a lot of fun to see all the great Internet stores that companies will build with our new shopping cart software.”

ProductCart v3 is available starting at $695 per storefront.
