What is CubeCart?
CubeCart is a popular storefront and shopping cart application included as a part of many hosting providers' eCommerce packages. With a plethora of plug-ins, detailed reports and flexible configuration, CubeCart is a good choice for veteran online retailers and eCommerce neophytes alike.
For many many small business owners, the decision to make the leap into online commerce coincides with their decision to build a website. Consequently, hosting providers of all stripes offer specialized "eCommerce" packages that often include improved site encryption, greater resource allocation, and shopping cart or storefront software designed to help the busy entrepreneur get their online shop up and running as quickly -- and professionally -- as possible.
Intuitive Control Panel
CubeCart offers an easy to use admin area with a detailed overview of the entire ecommerce site. The dashboard features sales stats in real time, and notification alerts for anything that needs your administrative attention: low stock warnings, customer comment and review approvals, and tasks related to new orders and fulfillment.
CubeCart offers a rich set of reporting features, allowing you to view sales data from a number of different perspectives:
- Custom time range (Week, month, year, etc.)
- Custom time division (sales by day, month, year, etc.)
- Sort by customer, by product, by department
- Different visual representations
- Comparison views
- Highlight gross, net, cost, shipping expenses, or any other detail.
Visual reports can be exported as images and the data behind reports can be exported to CSV for viewing in Excel or other spreadsheet software, or for importing into another data system if needed.
Full integration for Sage Bookkeeping is already supported, and (as of this writing) Quickbooks support is coming soon.
Development Flexibility with "Code Hooks"
If there is some feature you need that isn't yet supported, or some custom integration you wish to do, CubeCart supports the development of private and third-party plugins through their detailed hook system.
This allows developers to "hook into" key functions and triggers in major CubeCart use cases (adding a product, displaying a form, updating a shopping cat, etc).
Future versions of CubeCart are guaranteed to have backward compatibility with the hook system, ensuring a clean upgrade process with your custom code.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
When you add new products to your ecommerce system, CubeCart automatically generates all the pages, views, and product descriptions needed for user-friendly shopping.
But on top of that, all the pages, URLs, meta-data, and titles are optimized for the best possible Search Engine score, based on the information you provide. This data is all customizable as well. You can even edit precisely what Search Engines display when your site appears in their results.
Plugins & Modules
CubeCart has partnered with a number of third-party providers to integrate features and functionalities critical to a complete ecommerce experience. Plugin categories include:
- Payment gateways that provide a number of credit card processing and alternative payment options.
- Affiliate Marketing plugins that let you incentivize affiliate marketers to promote your products and services.
- Social media integrations that help you and your customers spread the word about your ecommerce store.
- Shipping plugins that provide order fulfillment features and real-time S/H pricing from major carriers (UPS, USPS, FedEX).
- Live help add-ons that give you the ability to interact directly with your customer.
Many hosting providers include a simple, one-click install of CubeCart Lite form the control panel. If you need the full-featured version later, you can upgrade in place, without having to start over.
If you're planning to purchase CubeCart directly and install it yourself, your Web server will need to have: - PHP 5.2.3+ - MySQL 4.1+ - Zend Guard Loader, Zend Optimizer, or Ioncube.
Remember to check with your host about adding or modifying critical system software before you hang out your virtual shingle.
