Appears X-Cart is finally picking up where everyone else has been with 3rd party contributors for years. Wordpress what?, MagentoConnect what? Ever since I had developed some aftermarket products for X-Cart, Qualiteam pretty much frowned on the whole concept of anyone else besides themselves benefitting from custom solutions to their existing software. However, I still see they require you be a special member in order to list your products in their market, unlike many others who will allow you to list them for free without much governing.
X-Cart can be a great ecommerce cart, don’t get me wrong but, there really isn’t much framework in it to allow for addons or modifications that can easily hookup into existing code without causing major headaches down the road once it is time to upgrade the base code. This was the biggest reason I switched from X-Cart to MagentoCommerce.
