  • More Store Customization Freedom
    ProductCart's HTML5 & CSS3 upgrade allows you maximum design freedom so you can easily create custom themes for your ProductCart store.
  • Customize Your Home Page
    In your store's Control Panel, you can choose what content is displayed and customize a slideshow for your home page with eye-catching photos.
  • Customize Your Product Detail Pages
    Drag and drop product display page features in your Control Panel and add an unlimited number of tabs on product display pages for a custom look that can be applied per product or as default at multiple levels without editing any code. If you previously used the third-party add-on by Greybeard to create product tabs, learn how to convert your old tabs into the new ProductCart tabs option.
  • Drag & Drop organization
    Reordering categories, brands and products for display within your store is made easy with our simple drag & drop feature.
  • Mobile Commerce
    Create your own custom mobile website with our theming guide, use one of ProductCart's 4 mobile responsive "Bootstrap" themes, or simply turn on the mobile commerce feature on the basic theme to activate a responsive mobile site. You can also adjust the mobile site's home page slideshow through your Control Panel. Read more about choosing the right ProductCart mobile commerce feature for your store on our blog.
  • Social Media Integration
    Display icon links to your social media platforms in your website's header or footer and turn on a "Pin It" button that allows customers to pin your products to Pinterest. ProductCart 5.0 also allows you to create a Facebook Store so customers can purchase your products straight from Facebook.

    The completely revamped One Page Checkout supports over 30 payment getaways, including Amazon and PayPal. Payment options for mobile commerce have also been expanded.
