The redesign includes a number of new site features:
- Purchase extensions from a variety of developers, all in one place, all with excellent coding and support.
- Filter search results and compare extensions by category, price, rating, OpenCart version compatibility, and whether core file edits or vQmod are required.
- Keep updated on the status of extensions you have not yet purchased by adding them to your wishlist. You can then choose to receive e-mails when the extension is updated or commented on.
- Quickly and easily rate any extension you have purchased in the past, by viewing them in your Downloads list.
- All extensions automatically have SEO URLs based on their names. For example, Total-Based Shipping can be found at http://www.opencartx.com/total-based-shipping.
- Enter a regular price and a special price for your extension, with date limits.
- Utilize BB Code tags in your extension descriptions.
- Add demo URLs directly within the product data, so customers don't have to search through the description for them.
- Order your uploaded images using drag-and-drop.
- Send update e-mails to customers when an extension is updated, along with a custom message of your choosing.
Just to be clear, I do not intend for OpenCartX to take away from the OpenCart extension store, as I think there is a place for both stores to coexist. My vision is more of a "best-of-the-best" extension marketplace, rather than a "come-one-come-all" kind of marketplace, which I believe is Daniel's vision for the OpenCart extension store.
