CRE Loaded team releases new 6.5 version renamed “Loaded Commerce”

“Loaded Commerce 6.5″ was released today by the former CRE Loaded team. The Loaded Commerce program is loosely based on the popular but flawed osCommerce ecommerce program, but is highly modified for security reasons and optimization. The program previously had 75 add-on features already incorporated, giving it the name “Loaded” and the new program is chock-full of too much good stuff to even count anymore.

The best part for small business owners is that the new cart makes it even easier for merchants to offer secure and PCI compliant transactions which ultimately lower total operating cost for the merchants. Utilizing CRE Secure can allow merchants to reduce or eliminate the cost of PCI scans or audits, because their payment processing is all done off-site. The company calls this patent-pending technology the HTML Clone(r), and this technology is included with the new version of the program.

Additional features included in all new versions of the cart including the free version are advanced page management that allows a non-technical administrator to add or edit pages without programming. Package tracking, display price per group, multi-vendor shipping AND multi-warehouse shipping are also included in the for-pay versions. Paid versions of the cart also feature Mailbeez integration, which is an automated, after-sale contact management system for lead generation. Points & rewards are likewise built into the cart, along with “Buy 1, Get 1 Free”, home page slideshow, additional reports and product handling capabilities including a bulk attribute manager, expanded newsletter filtering, recover abandoned carts,dimensional UPS shipping support.

Loaded Commerce 6.5 is available now in a free Community Edition, or in a fee-based professional solution for business to business (B2B) sales that has a CRE Secure starter account included.

Loaded Commerce 6.5 is available NOW, with prices ranging from $0 for the Community Edition, to a monthly plan with B2B software with secure off-site transaction processing for $24.95 a month, to $449 per year which includes a year of free technical support.
