Organize Your Store With Custom Post Types
Many ecommerce systems force you to display your products in a grid or list them by category. But, if you only sell a small number of products, that format doesn’t make any sense.

You simply place an “Add To Cart” button anywhere on any page or post you want. You can put as many products on a page as you want. Take advantage of WordPress custom post types introduce in WordPress 3.0 and set up a special page layout for your products.
Organize With Custom Taxonomies
Taxonomies may be a confusing word but it is just a way to group things. Up until WordPress 3.0 the taxonomies WordPress used were Tags and Categories. Now, WordPress allows you to create your own taxonomies to further categorize your content. WordPress provides a very robust editor and powerful content organization features giving you unbelievably flexible design options with Cart66 Pro.

Once an order is placed you can assign internal labels to your orders such as “new”, “shipped” or “canceled” to keep track of the status of your orders.
Recurring Payments For Subscriptions and Payment Plans
No other WordPress shopping cart makes it this easy to set up recurring payments. Using either Authorize.net or the Quantum Gateway services.

You can specify if you want to offer a trial period and Cart66 Pro will start billing your client’s credit card after the free trial has ended.
Easy PCI Compliance
Cart66 Pro never stores any credit card information in your WordPress database. Instead, Cart66 Pro will use either the Authorize.net Customer Information Manager or the Quantum Gateway Secure Vault to store all of the sensitive billing information. This makes PCI Compliance easy since you are not storing any sensitive information on your own server. In addition to that, Cart66 Pro passes the McAfee Security Test for PCI compliance.
