The address specified in this section is used for real-time shipping calculation:
- In X-Cart GOLD, this address is used as the origin address for all orders.
- In X-Cart PRO, this address is used a) as the origin address for the orders shipped from providers that do not have a seller address specified in their user profile; b) as the default origin address when testing the store's ability to receive real-time shipping rates.
Company address: The street address of your company.
Company city: The city where your company is located.

X-Cart can track different types of events that occur in your online store and send notifications about these events to the members of your store staff. The 'Company emails' section allows you to specify the email addresses to which the notifications will be sent.
By default, all the fields in this section contain the email address that was specified during the X-Cart installation. And all the notifications are sent to this address. If the store staff responsible for processing the notifications consists of more than one person who have separate email addresses, or you simply want to use different email addresses for different types of notifications, you need to readjust the settings in this section.
X-Cart allows you to specify 4 company email addresses:
Site administrator email address: for notifications about incorrect and potentially unsafe GET and POST requests to the site, SQL and login errors, notifications sent by the built-in Maintenance Agent.
Users department email address: for notifications about newly created, modified and deleted user profiles.
Orders department email address: for notifications about placed orders and changed order statuses, product quantity warnings etc.
Help/Support department email address: for messages submitted through the Contact Us form.
The exact set of notifications that you will receive at the company email addresses can be readjusted in the 'General settings/Email notifications options' section of the Admin area. For details, study section 'Email Notifications Options' of this manual.
