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.

  • Who is using what gateways, and with what results

    Since there are so many options, and so many problems, can each person just say what they use? Right now I'm using:

    Paypal regular, for about 8 years. Works great and instant payment to bank.

    Stripe: Using for about a year, and now about 75 percent of customers choose it, probably because it is the first option, and has CC input right there.

    Braintree: Briefly worked for Paypal Payment only, then stopped working. I wanted the other options that came with it but can't get anything to work (Apple, Venmo, Google Pay).

    Amazon Pay: Been trying for years but can't figure out the process.

    Square: Have not tried but looks like it might be the only option left to get mobile payments.

    Recently changed templates from HTML to HTML5 which is needed for Braintree, and bandwith doubled but "visitors" stayed the same.

    Paypal: Works great

    First Data / Gateway e4: Great for credit cards. One batch /day, so you can delete a transaction before it is 'processed. Great options for Fraud filters

    Braintree: Works great but no option for Fraud Filter with the version supported by3dcart. For this reason alone, I no longer use it.

    BitPay (Bitcoin): Highly recommended: Fee is 0% for low volume and only 1% for higher volumes . Can't beat that!

      I have really liked using PayPal/Payflow Pro for everything - all charges are in one place and easier to deal with.

        Is anyone using Etsy? I can't seem to find how it works? How does it connect to your Etsy account blah blah blah - there is little or no information!

          Using PayPal and Amazon Pay - A lot of customers choose Amazon Pay.
