A Better Checkout Experience
Change is not always easy. Fortunately, migrating from CCnow to FoxyCart is pretty straightforward.
And in addition to a working ecommerce system, FoxyCart is better looking, faster, and can be fully seamless with your existing website design!
How FoxyCart compares to CCnow
What FoxyCart looks like.
How FoxyCart is similar to CCnow
Like CCnow, FoxyCart doesn't control your website, so migrating from CCnow to FoxyCart can be as simple as setting up a FoxyCart account and changing your CCnow "add to cart" links to point to your FoxyCart cart instead. That's good news, because it means you can migrate without any major website redesign or restructing.
FoxyCart is, however, signficantly more powerful in certain areas (like design customization), so we hope you'll take advantage of that and fully integrate your FoxyCart-powered checkout into your existing website design. Click the examples on the right for a quick example :)
How FoxyCart is different from CCnow
The biggest differences between FoxyCart and CCnow are…
- FoxyCart doesn't have a product catalog. Instead of requiring you to create the product in CCnow and also on your website, products in FoxyCart are entirely defined by your "add to cart" links or forms. If that sounds confusing, don't worry, we're here to help.
- FoxyCart is not a payment processor. We support over 50 payment gateways (and PayPal), and are happy to recommend a good option for you if you'd like. For a payment gateway/merchant with no monthly fee, low transaction rates, and quick setup, we recommend Stripe
There are many other ways in which FoxyCart is different, but we think those are the two biggest conceptual pieces to understand.

Custom Forms & Donations
Because FoxyCart doesn't control your products or inventory, you can do radically custom order forms as well as highly flexible (or simple, if you'd like) donation forms. Here's an example of a donation form:

How long can I develop for free?
We know that it can often take months to get a site launched, and paying us while you develop would be decidedly lame. While most other services offer a "free trial", you'll still end up paying before you go live. Our "free during development" allows you the ability to do everything except use a live payment gateway, indefinitely. Once you're ready for the store to start collecting real payments just pay for your FoxyCart store and you'll be able to enter your production gateway credentials.
That's a big fee for low-priced items?
Though it's listed as a flat fee above, it's actually a 0.5% fee up to the fee listed above, but the minimum is 1¢ on the low end. So if you're selling $0, $0.99, or $2 transactions, the fee is just 1¢.
This fee also takes into account non-US Dollar currencies, so you aren't unfairly penalized based on different currency values.
Non-Profit discounts, please?
Sure thing! FoxyCart is proud to serve many, many non-profits across the globe. We offer a 10% discount across the board for not-for-profit organizations. Simply contact us to provide your proof of non-profit status and we'll adjust your account. (This discount is valid only for stores on FoxyCart v1.0+.)
Customer support is our top priority (next to building the most flexible, powerful e-commerce platform). Below are available methods of support:
