Download installation

Click on the link to download demo store installation Windows, Mac and Linux Installer


Demo store installer is a quick and convenient way of acquaintance with Yes-Cart. It allows to become familiar with Yes-Cart management and storefront features and realise the full potential of the platform.

It should be notes that we do not recommend demo installation to be used in production. It is strongly advisable to make manual installation to production and staging environments in accordance to security and best practices guidelines of the underlying operating system.

Mac tips
  • On Mac if you get a warning that the installer.jar is from unidentified developer. Open your Settings > Security & Privacy and click "Open Anyway"
  • Due to how izpack works on Mac there are no shortcuts generated. You should navigate to $YC_HOME/yesbin using Terminal and use to start the server and to shutdown the server
