New API Version Of Site Store Pro Posted
The biggest release in the 9+ year history of Site Store Pro is now available for immediate download!
The next generation of the Site Store Pro shopping cart is built around an open developer API and GpL2 based license.
We took everything you liked about the cart (extensive features, design freedom and security) and made it better!
The new version is now offered as a free base framework that is extended by an OPEN developer API. There are no encrypted files on the new release and activation is no longer required for use.
Existing license holders of the previous platform will be migrated into our new support based plans that include additional paid features for the cart such as PCI compliant payment provider plugins, direct support assistance and more.
New users can choose to either support their own installs with our online support options and/or purchase payment and premium plugins as needed ( or develop their own plugins with our open plugin API )
As always, we will continue to provide frequent patches and feature updates to the core cart framework. We will also be launching a new community based support forum as well as online webinars for users who wish to provide their own support and development resources into the new platform.
Rest assured, we will also still be supporting the previous PHP platform with new feature releases, security patches and more. There will be no change in operation or support for existing license holders. If you have a current Site Store Pro PHP license, you will be able to download both your paid version plus the new framework and any premium features and plugins that are associated with your current license model (PayPal, Enterprise or Developer) However, starting January 13 2015, we will no longer be offering paid licenses for the cart software and instead we will be selling support packages and premium payment provider and features plugins for the free base cart framework.
