This add-on is great. The company even did custom development for me to work with common products. They were responsive and clear about the work they were going to perform.
We did have a little mixup in emails but the company handled it well and went out of there way to make up for the mixup. Quick and extremely accommodating. Definitely, recommend using Cart Power.

Purchased the Live Search add on for our CScart. Ran into issues with installing, because our theme is so custom. Contacted support immediately and got support instantly!!
Ruslan (the support tech) was able to get the add on working very quickly. Great customer service! Great tech support! and a Great product!
We are very pleased with the performance of Live Search, far better than Searchanise which we used prior to this installation.
Thank you to Ruslan and the entire Cart Power team!
