#169516 CS-Cart SaaS Is on the Horizon

Amazon S3 Cloud and CDN I think.
Also, would have expected the pricing to be same as the upgrade licensing (closer to $10/month for one store).


First you have to get the tornado to stop blowing. Then you can worry about the dust.

This will be great for merchants who want zero customization of functionality or who do not need any back-end integration work. While the API exists, it is somewhat basic and most integrations that I've worked on require details not available via the API.

I'm understanding that addons from 3rd parties will be available after being certified by cs-cart (and probably following their model of releasing with each new version). However, I can't see how they can do this effectively. They can't even support their merchants and have never been able to offer true technical support to developers.

The biggest issue will be merchant support. If relying on helpdesk to solve issues, then the bankers hours and "we're too busy" responses simply won't fly for anyone trying to run a real business. 7X24X365 support with a minimum of 1hr response time is essential.


I bought an add on from you and it was days before you responded to my emails and your responses were very confusing. I finally ended up cancelling my order. I don't see how you can criticize someone else.
