Increased Awareness on Holiday Traffic from 2010’s Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Christmas Shopping brings Ecommerce Retailers to 3dcart Shopping Cart Software

At 3dcart, with multiple data centers and points of access across the country, our PCI certified ecommerce hosting guarantees the performance and security of your online store.

As consumers everywhere anxiously await the 2010 holiday season during the upcoming month of November, online retailers are gearing up their businesses to take maximum advantage of the year’s highest sales season.    

In anticipation of the busiest shopping season since the economic recession; a period which eMarketer predicts will enjoy a 12.7% increase from previous years and over $152 billion in estimated sales, the leading ecommerce software provider 3dcart has launched a Limited Edition Gold Plan with the goal of getting merchants ready before Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Merchants are aware of how holiday traffic translates into the website resources and, thanks to 3dcart, understand the importance of using an ecommerce provider that can guarantee uptime during this time of the year and can accommodate the peaks in traffic.

The Limited Edition Gold Plan from 3dcart offers merchants account limits that are higher than traditional ecommerce plans for bandwidth, products and storage; all for a flat $49.99 per month subscription fee. By not having any transaction fees during peak times, merchants can maximize their profits on holiday orders. The limited edition plan comes standard with 3dcart’s mCommerce Mobile storefront, Facebook store, Social Commerce tools, newsletter marketing, blog, shopping feeds and the ability to print shipping labels; no additional third party services are needed for merchants to sell online during this holiday season.

Over 10,000 existing 3dcart online stores are actively preparing for the holiday season and expect to have record sales this year. “For us a major part of our high season preparation was migrating to 3dcart. In addition to marketing promotions, special sales, free shipping and free gift wrap service. We also have a full container of product on the ocean right now making its way to us for holiday selling, which includes a few newly designed items that we are introducing just in time for the holiday season” says Laura McKone from

Merchants already have access to over 50 free templates and an additional 20 new premium ecommerce templates are being released, allowing existing clients the opportunity to refresh their website for the holidays. “Each year I like to give my website a face-lift and I was able to do so by taking advantage of 3dcart's new template designs." states Shanna Clayton from Darren Alexander, another 3dcart merchant, offers this insight: "We are the manufacturer of the products in our site so we've been building up inventory for the past few weeks trying to get ahead for our season. We also just launched another 3dcart store with one of the new templates and will be using the automatic distributor notifications feature."

“Every year we noticed trends with our merchants in regards to holiday preparations and performance. We do our best to help them succeed during these shopping seasons. For 2010, efforts have been targeted towards website design and improving the look of the sites, forecasting sales to make better buying decisions in the restocking and fulfillment process, upgrading server resources to accommodate spikes in traffic, implementing mobile versions of the online store to reach customers on-the-go, defining social strategies to launch Facebook stores, reaching twitter followers, and positioning products within multiple shopping channels.” said Jimmy Rodriguez, CTO of 3dcart.

3dcart CEO, Gonzalo Gil adds “If an online store has experienced any downtime or load time issues during slower months, merchants shouldn’t risk losing potential sales during the holiday and should migrate to an ecommerce platform that can accommodate their needs. At 3dcart, with multiple data centers and points of access across the country, our PCI certified ecommerce hosting guarantees the performance and security of your online store.”
