  • PROSTORES Closing its Doors

    Prostores will be closing their doors in 2/2015.

    I hope that 3dcart takes this opportunity to woo some of those businesses and use the added revenues to enhance 3dcart to unforeseen heights.

    ~Good Luck 3D with this immense opportunity.

    Do they want the people who consciously chose to hang on to PS for this long?

      I'm much more surprised that they are shutting down Magento Go. Magento is a complicated product.. having a hosted version of it is the only way I would use it I think.

          ProStores

          I received that news last night from another former ProStores person that recently moved another of his stores off of Go. I wasn't surprised. Those of us that already left felt the ProStores demise about 3 years ago when they came out with a major template change. That was the last straw for me! 3D has so much more going for it. I hope they navigate over here. I will be recruiting a few.

          I suspect that this news goes further since ProStores sold template rights to others, like Homestead. This present a great marketing opportunity for 3DCart now and for probably another year or two!

            Just for kicks I went and counted. We have 9 ex-Prostores employees on staff. We know the platform REALLY well. We're willing to do anything we can to help people transition to 3dcart.

                  My guess is that they'd been planning this for a looooong time. For them to already have an integrated system into ProStores admin took some planning and development time.

                  Sneaky sneaky.

                  I can promise you that we are being as aggressive as possible to make good out of this whole situation.

                    Good to hear, it is in all of our interests to have 3D be the best possible platform and with more cash flow, brings more improvements for existing customers - We hope :)

                      We are here on 3dcart and are happy. To woo new Magento Go and Prostore customer maybe someone that is familiar with the other shopping cart can explain:
                      Why is 3dcart better than the other cart that is wooing them? (this forum is auto replacing the name of the other cart with "other cart" :) )

                        Is it really replacing Tiny Commerce with "Other Cart"? LOL

                        That's hilarious. I'm guessing that's Henry's dirty work. To answer the question, 3dcart's main strength that none of the other guys can come close to is functionality. 3dcart has integration and partners to accomplish many things that the other carts (in our price range) can not. We also try to keep new functions and features rolling in steadily.

                        We also don't have crazy corporate investors making decisions just to try to increase profits by X% at the expense of our customers. Sure we've had some growing pains over the years. But things are very good and we've got very big plans moving forward. :)

                          Yes, those are some of the things you need to say to "woo" those stores here.

                          :)

                            I have a Prostores site, only thing that was beneficial was the auto syncing with my ebay account. I would post an item to ebay and it would clone to Prostores. I had a few orders a week on the site. I would put a note in with my ebay orders for the buyer to save 10% off their next purchase at the site.

                            The thing that really gets me is that Prostores is making more money by helping clients 'migrate' than they ever would before.

                            Glad that 3dcart has the ebay Module now. Any new products I make available I am using the 3dcart Module. For the older items I am currently copying and pasting products from my Prostores into 3dcart. Wish there was an easier way.
