reCommerce utilizes a third-party shopping cart called X-CART. X-CART releases updates to their shopping cart system on regular basis. Our goal is to make sure that your reCommerce shopping cart system is running as stable as possible and has all the latest features which make shopping easy and pleasurable for your customers. When a patch for X-Cart is released that fixes an issue that could impact reCommerce users (such as a patch to accommodate an update made to a 3rd party shipping service's API), we will analyze the patch and attempt to apply it to all sites in a timely fashion.
When X-Cart releases a major update, we evaluate the significance and level of impact of the changes made in the update. We then make a decision whether to apply the entire update, whether to apply a portion of the update, or whether to ignore the update. If we choose to apply any portion of the update, we will go through a testing phase to ensure that the update can be successfully applied to existing sites. Once the tests check out, we will apply and announce the changes. This process can take anywhere from 4 - 6 weeks once the update has been released. We may not evaluate every release.
We only apply X-Cart updates to reCommerce releases that use the branch of X-Cart being updated. ReCommerce 3 is based on the 4.6 branch of X-Cart. ReCommerce 2 is based on the 4.4 branch of X-Cart. ReCommerce 1 is based on the 4.1 branch of X-Cart.
ReCommerce sites that have been heavily customized may not be able to be upgraded as easily as sites with little or no customizations. Additional work may be required for these heavily modified sites. In such cases, updates will not be automatically applied. Upon request, we will make an assessment of the work necessary to apply the update, and we will prepare a quote. In most cases, applying an X-Cart upgrade to a customized site can take anywhere between 1 - 4 hours, however, it may take longer depending on the amount of changes in the upgrade and the amount of custom work that has been applied to your site. You can decide which course of action you would like to take in updating your store. Please remember that upgrading is not required.
