Yahoo! is a huge brand, so it might seem logical that their online store package would be the best of the best. But that simply isn't true. Yahoo! may be a household name, but the company does so many things that their focus on eCommerce is weak at best. True, Yahoo! Stores has the required features to run an online store, but it pales in comparison to a platform released by a dedicated eCommerce provider. Sellers on Yahoo! Stores have to deal with limited features, lack of choices, and other stumbling blocks — not to mention extra transaction fees!
3dcart, on the other hand, is a full-featured online store solution developed purely for eCommerce. You get far more features to help drive your success, better overall functionality, more real-time shipping options and payment providers, and much more. Plus, 3dcart has no transaction fees, ever.
Yahoo! Stores has no built-in coupon functionality, so you need to pay for a third-party app just to offer the coupons and promo codes central to enticing customers and increasing sales. But 3dcart comes with a versatile promotions module that lets you create all kinds of coupons and codes in minutes.
Yahoo! Stores offers very limited payment options, so you'll only be able to accept credit cards and PayPal. You may not even be able to use your existing merchant account, if you have one. 3dcart, however, is fully integrated with over 200 payment providers.
“I started my online store with Yahoo! because I knew the brand, but ended up disappointed. It was okay at first, but the more I learned about running an online business, the more I realized what was missing. It started feeling so limited. Switching to 3dcart felt like upgrading from a bicycle to a sports car.”

Retailers and customers alike rely on real-time shipping rates, label printing, and tracking number generation, but Yahoo! Stores only offers these features if you use UPS. With 3dcart, you'll have a choice of fully-integrated shipping carriers like UPS, FedEx, USPS, and more.
3dcart knows what it takes to sell online. That's why our platform is packed with every feature you need to build and grow your business, from inventory management to marketing.
Yahoo! simply isn't focused on eCommerce, and Yahoo! Stores are missing vital features you need for marketing, managing customers, and preventing cart abandonment.
3dcart was developed with eCommerce in mind from the beginning, and our laser focus has gone into creating a shopping cart platform backed up by vast industry knowledge.
Try to do everything and you'll excel at nothing. Yahoo! Stores is just another small product of a massive company, created to meet demand — but it won't meet your needs.
