Great Solution for Growing Online Sales

2019-12-04

3dCart allowed our direct sale business to become an online business, with bells and whistles we thought would only be possible at a much higher monthly cost. We were able to develop a multi-state following, and offer incentives and loyalty programs, all for a very affordable monthly price. The headaches were minor in comparison to what 3dCart has done for us!

Pros

For a small, growing business with an ever-expanding product base, 3dCart meets the need for scalability, ease of adding product details, behind the scenes product management and point of sale tracking, giving a really good all-in-one place to track and grow without the heavy investment of some other popular solutions.

Cons

The printed reports are good, comprehensive, and useful; the ability to integrate them easily with other software is somewhat lacking; it can be done, but with some of the accounting software we tried, it was a difficult porting process.

A great product with wonderful customer support

2019-06-04

Pros

Our association needed a shopping cart to collect registration data for a conference we are holding. 3dcart was the perfect solution for our company since the software has the capability to capture additional information during the ecommerce transaction.

Cons

Sales reports in formats other than CSV would be helpful.

Solid Sofware with API Capabilities

2016-12-08

Pros

Customer returns are off -- you can return an order easy enough, but if you're returning single line items, it doesn't work -- you have to band-aid that part.

Cons

the actual back end phone order/customer service/returns etc needs tweaked.

Good start but ultimately had to switch

2018-04-30

It was a great start for my eCommerce business

Pros

It's an all in one solution for eCommerce, has more features you'll need to start your business or run your online store at it's simplest form.

Cons

Customization involves costly up sells from the 3dcart team. Exporting to another platform if and when you're ready is NOT clean and easy of a process.

3dCart does E_commerse BETTER

2019-02-16

3dcart is one of its kind, i can always recommend this app to everyone that cares to build an online presence for their business. You will never regret using 3dcart. everything you need to sell online is on 3dcart!

Pros

using 3dCart you have great opportunity and access to everything you need for creating a complete eCommerce website, online store and blog on a free of charge basis As an aspiring seller, you don't have to own a factory before you can begin selling products online. the dropshipping platform by 3dcart is awesome There is a top notch SEO on 3dcart that helps you optimize your website to be seen by more visitors and consequently convert more of them into paying customers within few minutes you can sign up and set up your account. then begin to customize it with the numerous tools already available on the platform to suite what you have in mind for your business

Cons

The liability to be bear by small/upcoming seller using the drop shipping avenue could be more strictly dealt with such that the seller don't have to go through a lot of rigor to settle dispute that has to do wit orders.

#1 eCommerce Software

2016-11-24

It is full of rich features like detail product listings (more than other platforms), SEO, optimization, integration with Google, ebay and others.

Pros

Integration with Google Sponsored product listing and upload.

Cons

3dCart is open to new ideas and provides a web site to enter ideas too. But they are a bit slow in bringing in at least critical features.

Coding required!

2019-06-04

But, too much moving around with the interface and lots of coding to get things in the right layout.

Pros

It has retail multi-channel and marketing capabilities as well, an advanced customizable platform.

Cons

For the most part, would require someone who knows some html. In other words, not for basic users. And it offers limited themes. Most useful for doing things from scratch.

3d Cart Software

2019-06-04

Https has given us better search results.

Pros

The back end is very organized to include opening up new pages and most importantly SEO areas. With updates Google aims at e-commerce websites, the 3dcart software is a day at the beach.

Cons

I personally can't think of a single area. If images were available awesome however we found it's best to obtain that with a camera.

Took two years to get ecomm site up and running

2017-09-20

For our needs this was the best. None of the big three do absolutely everything. Requires lots of time and repetition to learn all the tricks, this is a deep program, but we have it do a lot and have it very customized.

Pros

Most everything is customizable if you can figure out how.

Cons

You will constantly run into something it doesn't do such as percentage pricing on options, but none of them do it all.

The project will be bigger than you think by a factor of four. Much of what yuo do will get redone as you learn how to do it properly. Don't expect to dump your entire store contents in and have it properly running, start with only a few categories and a few products.

Overall customer service has been great. The software is not very intuitive.

Pros

If you know html and css, the software is super customizable.

Cons

There are basic features that are lacking. Hiding out of stock items with multiple variables, changing main image based on customer option selected, option to hide In advanced options are some basic features this software is lacking.
