Posting Rules
This forum was created to help 3dcart users share tips on getting the best out of the service, offer knowledge and experiences about e-commerce in general, and to promote a positive environment in which our merchants can request/dispense advice regarding best practices.

The forum was not created for 3dcart users to submit requests for customer support. Any support related thread will be removed and a support ticket will be placed on your behalf. If you have technical difficulties please visit

The 3dcart forum is also not intended to be a medium in which to express dissatisfaction about 3dcart's service, policies or its management and staff. Threads of this nature will also be removed from the forum. If a support issue with your 3dcart store was not resolved in a satisfactory manner; or if you feel that a particular 3dcart offering/policy is not to your liking, please let us know by emailing [email protected] so we can address your concerns directly.

Again, our purpose is to cultivate a positive learning environment for our merchants rather than platform in which to express grievances.

Very Important Rules:
* Never give away your store administration login/password in this forum.

Should you need technical help, please let 3dcart staff help.
Also, please be aware that 3dcart staff will NEVER need to ask for your 3dcart related passwords.

General Rules:
* While debate and discussion are acceptable, we will never tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks or inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters.
* Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) nonsensical posts, or similar postings.
* Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed.
* Advertising, spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum email and Private message system to spam other members.
* We also do not allow posts that are sexual in nature.
* Please wait at least 24 hours before bumping posts.
* Discussion of illegal activities such as software and music piracy and other intellectual property violations are not allowed.
* Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed.
* We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.
* We also reserve the right to remove postings which are in violation of our specified posting rules
* Also, while these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently, we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.
* You cannot post any affiliate or referral links, or post anything asking for a referral. Such posts will be subject to removal.
* You cannot post advertisements or notices for contests.
* We also reserve the right to ban anyone who willfully violates the forum rules, as access to our support forums are a privilege and not a right. A banned customer is still entitled to support from the support system, but will not be able to participate in the forum.

  • trying to get in touch with support when website servers are down?

    OK - our website starting having a few hiccups yesterday as I noticed it was slow to load at times. Get up this morning to find website taking about 5 mins. to load and 3dcart admin panel also extrememly slow to load - 5 mins or so and just spinning trying to load.

    Now it's 5:30 am EDT - call 3dcart - no one answers (left message) - send message via admin panel chat. Also just sent support ticket in - have used 3dcart for years and have never had an issue getting in touch with them. Now I'm concerned - are they not answering until a specific time now?

    Also checked and no issues shown?

    I'm thinking they are working on servers and simply don't post any info.

    I feel your pain. Our experience tells us that it takes 2-3 days to get a response to support tickets even high priority support tickets and this is extremely frustrating.

      ebeegirl We apologize that you didn't get to anyone when you called, we usually have staff at that time so I will see what happened. I was able to find your ticket and see that our support team was able to investigate and respond.

      kbscoatings Usually tickets should only take 24hrs to get a response because it depends on what needs to get investigated. But never should a ticket have no response 2 day or more. If you encounter that again please let me know and I can look into it.

        Has something changed with the email servers? We are not able to send any emails as of this morning. They are stuck in the "Outbox". This is happening to each email and employee here on multiple computers. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you - Damien

          We have seen a significant decrease in customer support response times even for HIGH Priority tickets and phone calls. Recently had a situation where customers could not check out. Put in a emergency ticket, and followed up with a phone call. The response was that they were working on it and would update me in 3-5 days. REALLY......when my customers cannot checkout! Fortunately it was fixed that day or honestly we would have been looking at a cart change. Our previous cart we had been with for 10 years and they slowly started sunsetting, decreasing staff, longer and longer response times and an indifference to their customers. That was when we made the shift to 3d back in 2013. I hope we don't have to do a repeat as we really like 3d but certainly notice a decrease in customer service/tech support.

            damiencaz I've reported what you're experiencing to our admins to investigate what's going on. Can you also submit a ticket with any other details regarding this and we will respond soon as we have something from the admins.

              Elimax I looked into that ticket and the agent full response explain that it was escalated to our developers and that it "could" take 3-5 business day but if it's resolved sooner you will be notified. This is said because after support troubleshoots all the basic settings and couldn't resolve it the developers will need to look deeper which could consist of viewing the source code or contacting the gateway company to make sure nothing has changed. We're not saying that it will take 3-5 days but depending on the response times we get from the other companies we provide a time window for all escalated issues.

                Thank you - I did submit a ticket about an hour ago on this. Until this is resolved, we are using the web-based SmartEmail servers to reply and send emails. Thank you.
