The PureClarity X-Cart addon does the following:

  • Allows you to sign up for a 14 day free trial.

  • Gives you guidance on the initial setup of PureClarity in your store.

  • Sets up the Zones for the Home Page, Product Page, Basket Page and Order Confirmation Page.

  • Ensures data integrity between your store and PureClarity through scheduled feeds and deltas.

  • Tracks events on your stores frontend to ensure up to date information is used in recommendations.

To get started you’ll need to install the addon.


You can install the addon by visiting the “My addons” menu item in your store’s Admin.

On the addons page, use the search bar at the top of the page to search for “PureClarity” and you’ll see the “PureClarity Personalisation” Addon listed.

Click the “Install addon” tickbox and then click the Apply changes button on the right-hand side of the page. This will install the PureClarity addon in your store.

Once the installation process is finished, return to your Admin area and you will see a new menu item under the “Content” menu. This is where you can set up an Account for your free trial.


When you click the PureClarity menu item under the “Content” menu, you’ll be taken to the PureClarity Dashboard page.


If you do not yet have an account with us you can sign up, by clicking the “Sign up” button. When you click the signup button on the PureClarity Dashboard, the signup form appears.

It requires you to fill in some basic details that we need to set up your account within PureClarity.

When you submit the form, the request will be submitted to PureClarity and processed as soon as possible, usually within a couple of minutes.

If you stay on the waiting page your X-Cart site will be configured as soon as it is processed, but you can also navigate away and come back later as a background process will check the progress of your application and configure your X-Cart site once it’s complete.


If you already have an account with us, you can fill in the details on the dashboard page after install:

You’ll need the following details from your account:

  1. AccessKey

  2. SecretKey

You can find these under the My Account > Integration menu within the PureClarity admin site.

 NOTE: For security reasons it’s important to not share the SecretKey with anyone.

You’ll also need to choose the region (USA / Europe / UK) that your application is on.

If you have multiple language stores you will need an application per store, and thus multiple Application Access Keys. Please contact our Support Team to create additional PureClarity accounts for you at support@pureclarity.com.


Once PureClarity has set up your account, or you provided your account details, then your X-Cart store will have the following automatically happen:

  • PureClarity addon settings are configured:Module Enabled.Access Key.Secret Key.Daily Feeds Enabled.Deltas Enabled.

  • Data Feeds requested:Product.Category.User.Historic order information.


Once the PureClarity signup has completed and your store is configured, the dashboard page will change to show the next steps to take, information about data feeds and links to help & documentation
