What is CubeCart?
Whether you are a retailer looking for an online store or a webmaster seeking an ecommerce solution for a client… CubeCart is a powerful free ecommerce solution enabling thousands of merchants globally to sell digital or physical products online.
We are pleased to announce the release of CubeCart 6.5.0 beta 1. This is a beta release and may not be suitable for production stores. If you are not interested in adding Elasticsearch to your store or if it is not available via your hosting provider we do not recommend installing or upgrading to this release of 6.5.0.
This release has just one new feature. Elasticsearch will improve and speed-up the search facility on the front end.
How do I get Elasticsearch working?
CubeCart will require Elasticsearch to be installed on your server. Please find instructions at the URL below:
- Once installed it can be enabled via the Advanced section of your Store Settings.
- Finally, you'll need to index your current inventory. To do this visit the Elasticsearch tab in the Maintenance section of your store control panel. Once indexed it should maintain itself.
Regrettably this powerful new feature is unlikely to be available for merchants using typical shared generic web hosting. Please check with your hosting provider or server administrator.

UK, US and FR merchants using PayPal Commerce are now able to offer their customers PayPal - Pay in 3.
What is Pay in 3?
PayPal Pay in 3 is an installment product that allows merchants to give shoppers increased buying power and flexibility to spread the cost of their purchase over time. Pay in 3 lets shoppers split their purchases into three interest free payments. The first instalment payment is charged at the time of the purchase. The subsequent payments are charged monthly on the same day from the customer's PayPal account via their debit card until the instalment purchase is paid off.
How do I enable Pay in 3?
Pay in 3 is already enabled but messaging has been added since 1.4 of the PayPal Commerce integration. We recommend all merchants upgrade to this version.
How can Pay in 3 help my business goals?
