Developers Hotcakes

Developers are innovative and intelligent professionals with great ideas to offer, but they are often too swamped with code to share their special skills. We’ve worked to reduce ramp-up time by supplying videos, documentation, and sample Visual Studio solutions. That way, valuable members of your team aren’t wasting their time and talents.

Free and Open Source

Hotcakes Commerce is free for you and your company to use, under the liberally permissive MIT license. You can build as many stores as you'd like, wherever and however you want.

You Can Host It Anywhere

Hotcakes Commerce was built from the ground up to be ultra-flexible, able to meet the needs of nearly any project. As long as your hosting environment is Windows-based, you can install and run Hotcakes there.

If you're looking for a way or place to get support for your Hotcakes Commerce site, Upendo Ventures is the official provider of managed Cloud and SLA services for Hotcakes.

Lightweight and Easy-to-Use-API

Developers love this type of API because it is simple and effective. Nearly anything you can do as a merchant in the administration can be done using the REST API and it can be used from anywhere.

Simply Standards-Based

Hotcakes is standards-based, which means that pretty much anyone can use it. Information and troubleshooting advice can easily be accessed from any reputable online source. Your business will enjoy better efficiency as less time is wasted. Use existing skill sets on your team, or easily find what you need elsewhere. Gone are the days of maintaining proprietary and outdated technologies.

Your Whole Presence in One Place

One login, one vendor, one place for everything. Your entire online presence, and everything that you need to run all of your websites. This simplifies your business, lessens your workload reducing costs company-wide.

Standards-based Security

Your developers have enough to worry about without having to stress over the security of the site. Again, we have designed Hotcakes to be standards-based so that, when it comes to get PCI certified, the software part is already checked off of the list.
