3dcart Stores are NOT Affected by the Heartbleed Security Bug

HeartbleedBy now, you’ve probably read in the news, or heard across the wire that the newest security bug code named “Heartbleed” has been spreading across the web for some time now, and has just been recently identified.  Since 3dcart is Level 1 PCI compliant, we have one of the most secure shopping cart platforms in existence today.  To learn more about how 3dcart protects your data, you can read more about our PCI Compliance.

Heartbleed is a flaw in the OpenSSL protocol (which is not used by 3dcart).  OpenSSL is an open-source encryption technology which is the backbone for many secure websites that collect personal and financial data.  Fortunately, OpenSSL is not used on any 3dcart web properties.  You can learn more about the Heartbleed Bug here.

Heartbleed has been present since March 2012, but has only recently been identified.  While your 3dcart stores have not been impacted in any way by this vulnerability, it is recommended that watch for communication from different websites and companies that you may have frequently visited in the event that these companies were using the OpenSSL technology.  Many major websites such as Amazon, Google, Facebook and others may have been impacted.

To learn more about how to protect yourself from the Heartbleed Bug, we suggest reading this article from CNET.

As always, we appreciate your business here at 3dcart, and we are always here to help.

3 Ways to Give Your Customers the Ultimate Shopping Experience

With all the online shops mushrooming all over, how in the world will you make sure that your customers will come back and won’t go trooping to another store the next time around? Well, aside from having high quality products that offer something unique, you also need to ensure that each and every customer has a good time shopping at your Internet store.

Freebies, Discounts, and Promos

People just can’t resist getting freebies! Why not give out a free item to every 100th visitor who buys something from your shop? Or perhaps you can prepare welcome gifts for first-time visitors.

What’s more, coming up with different promos will keep shoppers excited and always eager to swing by and browse what you’re offering. You can introduce a rewards program, weekly huge discounts on selected items, or Buy One Take One promos that pop up at random. Get creative with your gimmicks!

Social Gatherings and Events

Even online shoppers would love the chance to socialize and participate in a fun get-together at your store. Invite them for a virtual party to launch a new product. Schedule a forum discussion to talk about the latest trends. Hold a monthly fashion show wherein you feature photos of actual customers wearing or using your products and people can vote online for the best outfits, most creative shots, and more!

With such fun events, you’ll be surprised at the turnout of attendees, participants, returning customers, and new followers.

Customized Products

Giving shoppers the opportunity to customize their favorite products will certainly take their shopping experience to a whole new level. For example, if you were selling slippers, wouldn’t it be great if you could let your customers design them and then order their very own creations? They can pick the color, print, and embellishments. They can even personalize labels.
