CS-Cart is constantly developed and elaborated. And we regularly release software updates that offer a range of improvements addressing everything from security and performance through to search engine optimization enhancements. Updates are thoroughly tested and quality controlled providing you with stable, tested performance enhancements that continually decrease your long-term total cost of ownership. Moreover, with updates you get new features delivered to your store.
Owning a CS-Cart / Multi-Vendor lifetime license grants you the right to run the software on a server for an unlimited amount of time. And being a holder of this license type, you are entitled to a free access to all updates, whether minor or major, for a period of one year from the date of purchase. You can prolong this access by purchasing a one-year upgrade subscription plan on the Licenses page in your personal CS-Cart Help Desk account.
With an annual CS-Cart / Multi-Vendor subscription license, you are allowed to run the software on a server for a period of one year, but you save a lot on access to new versions and upgrades that is included in the subscription license price (owning a CS-Cart subscription license additionally allows you to save up to $1,000 (!) on the included add-ons and services).
