We here at AbanteCart wish to express our sincere appreciation to all users, developers and supporters, as we celebrate our 5th anniversary. Yes, it has been 5 years and we are proud of what AbanteCart has become. We have achieved this milestone thanks to the hard work every team member who has contributed to its success.

AbanteCart eCommerce solution was made public on November 11, 2011 (11/11/11). Since then, we have developed many features and went through many phases of changes and improvements to get to where we are now. Below are some significant milestone achievements that are worth mentioning:

  • Prior to v 1.2 AbanteCart was already feature rich and since v1.1.4, AbanteCart has been able to handle customers' data encryption and provided storefront API.
  • Since v1.1.8, AbanteCart has provided extensive features to support digital products and handle order downloads.
  • Since version 1.2, AbanteCart has become a 100% mobile open source ecommerce platform with mobile storefront, admin and storefront API. Tasks management was also introduced in 1.2.
  • Later, with version 1.2.3, embed codes were introduced to allow easy integration of products into virtually any existing web sites.
  • Starting with version 1.2.5, AbanteCart was significantly improved to deliver outstanding performance with proven results.
  • With version 1.2.6, core support for SMS and other other notification drivers were introduced.
  • In version 1.2.7, better improved caching was introduced with support for multiple cache drivers.

These are just few highlights of features and improvements introduced in the past 5 years.

AbanteCart marketplace was launched in March 2014. In 2016 alone, independent authors/developers have added 150 new extensions to the marketplace. This number is growing fast, as we get more and more users and developers who like to work or develop with AbanteCart. Latest featured extensions include Fast Checkout, Online Donations, Monnika Theme and many more.

Moving forward, we have a long standing promise to continue innovate and expand AbanteCart eCommerce platform, features, community and the marketplace
