Installing Addons from the X-Cart App Store
page last edited on 14 December 2017
To install an addon from the X-Cart App Store:
Log in to your store’s Admin area and click My addons in the Admin menu.
You will see a page with a list of addons installed in your X-Cart store.
Use the Search box at the top of the page to search the X-Cart App Store for the addon you require.
Alternatively, click on the All Addons link to be able to browse the App Store categories.
Locate the addon you require. The filter and sort controls at the top of the addon list can help you do it faster. For example, you can select just the addons that are available for free, or just the paid addons that require purchasing a license, or both.
Any addons that are already installed in your store will have their status noted as either “Enabled” or “Disabled”.
Addons available for free will be marked as “Free”.
Paid addons will have a price displayed.
Depending on whether your chosen addon is free or paid, use one of the following methods:
Select the addon for installation by clicking Install addon below the addon name. (It is possible to select more than one addon.)
Click the Apply changes button at the bottom of the screen.
This starts the installation process.
Click the Purchase button next to the addon name to purchase the addon license.
After the license has been paid for, you will get an email message with your license key. The subject of this message is ‘Your “Addon name” addon key’. (The part “Addon name” should be replaced with the actual name of the addon). Use this key to activate your addon license. Note that if you are using an X-Cart trial you will need to activate an X-Cart software license before you can activate your addon license. As soon as the addon license has been activated, the addon will be automatically installed at your store.
Once the addon has been installed, you will be redirected to the Recently istalled addons page where a success message will be displayed at the top of the screen. You will find the newly installed addon listed on the page.
Now if you choose to view the list of your store’s installed addons, the addon you have installed will be on the list.
After the addon has been installed, it is already in the Enabled (active) state. You can temporarily disable the addon or remove it completely using the addon deactivation instructions from the article Activating and Deactivating Addons.
