About X-Shops

We are a specialist in e-commerce site rental We offer fully supported e-commerce solutions. Our philosophy is simple: Let the customer run his/her business and we will manage the technology. We do not believe that trading online should be difficult, expensive or time consuming. 


How We Started

We are experienced programmers, coding on a number of desktop and web technologies. We initially started e-commerce as a project to attract additional revenue streams. In order to make our lives as easy as possible, we wrote a windows based front end to manage our orders. Today, the software has evolved into a fully functional e-commerce front end. The user has access to orders, can update status, search for orders, print invoices and even push orders onto couriers systems at the touch of a button.


Where Are We Now?

we operate fast, reliable dedicated servers... We operate multiple shops for ourselves and our clients. Our dedicated servers each serve a limited number of shops (typically six) ensuring a fast, reliable response for the customer. As we setup, maintain and configure these servers ourselves, all e-commerce shops benefit from multiple backups which are copied to our dedicated backup server and then to local archive storage.

We have many additional facilities such as automatic currency updates for those users who wish to display prices in alternative currency, automatic slideshows, product filters, easy mail list management and much, much more..


Our own in-house e-commerce sites include Dickie Bows and Country Canes. These sites give a good example of how X-cart classic performs on a mobile or tablet. We code most of our own extensions (modules) where the functionality is not easily available elsewhere. This allows a great deal of flexibility and allows for a bespoke environment where required.


We also sell on other shopping platforms including Amazon and eBay which means we have first hand knowledge in adding these platforms to your portfolio.


What else do we offer?

As we also offer PC support, some customers also opt for contracted PC support as well. This makes life easy for the user - if they need help with their PC, simply call us whatever the problem. Generally support is via remote unless the client is local enough for an on site call.
