Our South Florida team is truly dedicated to your online success.  I recently received this testimonial, and I just wanted to share it with you.  Thank you Chris!  Thank you for taking the time to let us know your thoughts.

Hi 3dcart, I just wanted to say I love 3dcart and that you guys have absolutely changed my entire perspective on designing and selling on your own website. I was referred to you by my uncle who found you guys many years before I did. I still remember when I asked him where his website is hosted and he said “3dcart” and I asked why, and he said “I’ve tried a lot of different methods to sell online, and I’ve tried hosting my website with many other companies and I finally found the right company this time”.

I had no idea what he meant until I was 2 years deep into web site building and ecommerce. Now I can only imagine what he went through before find a platform like 3dcart.  I’ve always thought of 3dcart as the “Apple of ecommerce”.  I can’t think of many companies that ALWAYS seem to solve my problem.

We will hopefully be getting our 3rd website up and running with 3dcart by the end of the year but and it’s not a even a question of where we would go to build it.  I always found it amusing that every time I meet someone that has used 3dcart, they always say that 3dcart is a million times better than ANY other shopping cart. Anyways, sorry for the long email.  I’m just the type of person that has to let you know when I’m really happy about something. Thanks again for the great customer service!

Thanks!

No Chris, thank you!  It is customers like you that inspire us to do what we do.  Happy selling, and whenever you need us, we’re here.
