CS-Cart Plugin

CS-Cart is a powerful and flexible ecommerce shopping cart application. CS-Cart includes all the functionality you need to build a full-featured online store, including multi-store support that can be set up and maintained in a single administration panel. CS-Cart is also available with a Multi-Vendor option. Multi-Vendor is an enhanced ecommerce platform that supports multiple independent sellers in an online marketplace.

Integrating your CS-Cart store with Razorpay allows you to accept payments on your CS-Cart site via the Razorpay Payment Gateway. You can accept payments via debit card, credit card, netbanking (supports 3D Secure), UPI or through any of our supported wallets.
