Do I need an e-commerce theme?
No, Cart66 is designed to work with all themes. We try not to reinvent the wheel and, instead, use all the great features already built into WordPress such as categories, tags, image galleries, recent post widgets, etc. for laying out your store. Here is a quick tutorial on how to use post categories and widgets to organize your products.
Do I need an SSL certificate?
No, Cart66 has all the security you need built in. You get your own custom subdomain that hosts your secure checkout page. We skin your secure checkout page with your WordPress theme so it looks exactly like the rest of your site. To see what this looks like see How (and why) Cart66 Cloud Secure Checkout Works.
What is PCI Compliance?
The Payment Card Industry (Visa, Mastercard, etc.) have defined a comprehensive set of requirements that you have to follow if you are going to collect, store, process, or transmit credit card information. Your Cart66 account does all the collecting, storing and transmitting of your credit card information so you don’t have to worry about any of the details. If you're still curious about the details, checkout what you need to know about PCI compliance.
Do you still sell Cart66 Pro?
In many ways Cart66 Cloud, is Cart66 Pro 2.0. Cart66 Cloud was rebuilt from the ground up to meet important needs that were previously not possible to achieve with a WordPress plugin alone. Therefore Cart66 Cloud is not backwards compatible with Cart66 Pro and was released as a separate product. To learn more, check out the history of Cart66.
Cart66 Pro is powering thousands of e-commerce sites and we continue to support, maintain, and release updates on a regular basis. You can always renew your Cart66 Pro license, get support, or buy Cart66 Pro.
