The functionality of your X-Cart 5 based store can be extended by installing addons (modules). 

After installing X-Cart 5 you will find that your store has some addons installed already. You can view their list in the Installed Addons section (available via the My addons menu item in the Admin menu). You can enable/disable and even delete addons according to your needs.

It is possible to obtain and install more addons. A great selection of addons for X-Cart 5 is available via the X-Cart App Store; however, addons can also be obtained from other sources.

Starting from X-Cart 5.4.x all manipulations with the software addons are perfromed in a special environment (X-Cart Service Screen) separate from the rest of the store. This was done to ensure that any changes applied to a store via new addons’ installation or present addons’ upgrade or deletion can be safely rolled back in case of any malfunction.

The Upgrade System environment is opened from the My Addons menu section in the store Admin area.
