Pros

They partner with great providers - i.e. FusionBot search has been wonderful in creating a custom solution for our site.

JL

Jim L.

Love the ease of 3dcart and the amazing customer support. Even if it's a little thing of not being able to locate something they are quick to help and go out of their way to do so.

AS

Amy S.

I really love that I can customize my store according to my requirements and it's fully secure.

Muddassar B.

Pros

When I have spoken to a tech they have been excellent in understanding my question and providing a solution. At times working outside the box to create the best result with the conditions present.

TD

Todd D.

Overall we are happy with performance and support from LightSpeed. It's reliable and with the small amount of problems we have we are pleased.

CR

Chrysie R.

We love how easy this was to set up. It does not require buying $20,000 worth of equipment like our first POS system did back in 2008.

MH

Marie H.

Cons

I was searching for a platform that had the bells and whistles which Yahoo merchant solutions missed so badly.

JL

Jim L.

The only problem I have encountered is the inability to provide a coupon based on type of checkout option.

JH

Jason H.

There is no way to make price adjustments without changing each one individually. It is repetitive and time consuming.

LS

LORRAINE S.

Cons

This POS system is terrible for retail shops doing anything more than a standard sale. It's unintuitive, confusing, easy to make errors and very frustrating.

JN

Jenny N.

Limited options for payment processing, having to go with a non integrated payment was frustrating, and we were also limited with payment processing options for our eCommerce site.

AL

Annie L.

It’s extremely frustrating and not user friendly at all. In fact, I think the whole system is deeply flawed and unworkable.
