Frequently Asked Questions
Open Source vs. Non Open Source - Open Source software rely on code donations from the public domain. Everyone has access to the code and is free to develop and change parts of it. With so many different programmers working on different components of a cart, compatibility issues are bound to arise. When new features are developed, they will need to be tested with every existing functionality to ensure conflicts do not occur when the code is ran. Website owners using open source software would need to take care of this testing or pay a developer to do this everytime a new feature is added to their site. This is time consuming and really unpractical but very necessary to ensure the smooth running of the software. Our QE Cart is NOT Open Source. We have developed the code 100% by ourselves and all our features are compatible with each other and run well concurrently. Additionally, if a new functionality is added, our team of programmers do the testing for you to ensure that it works with the other parts of your cart. Also, QE Cart has no backdoor entries so you can rest assured that your website would be completely secure from hackers. If the functionality has not been done before, we can do it. if it has been done, we can do it better.

QE Cart has no known compatibility issues. All of our code was created by our programmers so all the parts work seamlessly together to provide you with the best worry-free shopping cart solution on the internet today.
Glad you asked!
There are two main parts to a web site.
1. The graphic design or the "look and feel" this is what people see on their monitor. This is created using a "CSS Style Sheet" - this is where you add the graphics and links.
2. The second part is the "source code" which actually makes the site work. If you have a function on a web site and then put the same function on another site, it may look different because of the CSS style sheet, but the source code will be the same.
Now here is the question: Would you rather save time and money and have the programmer copy the code and paste it in your web site or would you rather they recreate it from scratch - which would take more time and cost more money?
It is much more cost efficient to use code that is known to be good then to recreate the code again and then debug it.
A different example would be if you needed new brakes on your car. Would you like the mechanic to buy a new set that has been proven to work correctly for $50 or would you rather he makes them himself for about $2000?
We have been in the web development business for over 17 years now and we would like to put our experience to work for you.
