In order for your online store to be successful, you need an awesome homepage. There’s no getting around it. You can’t have one without the other. The two are forever intertwined like Romeo and Juliet.
This Friday March 22nd from 4 PM – 6 PM, 3dcart will be hosting a “Basic Web Design Tips to Improve Website Usability” Meetup here in our Fort Lauderdale, FL office.
With over 16,000 successful eCommerce stores built on 3dcart, choosing a handful of stores to highlight was no small task. There are too many beautiful 3cart stores to list them all, but we chose to showcase the below sampling of well-designed merchants because overall they are doing eCommerce design right - great navigation, beautiful product photos, compelling calls-to-action and impressive design.
Crisp air, warm sweaters, Starbucks' holiday flavored coffees - what's not to love about the fall! If you needed one more reason to embrace that nip in the air, 3dcart just released new Upsell banners in the spirit of season!
We know our customers aren't Dummies, but giving them a book never hurts. That's why we've partnered up with DUMMIES to offer a free copy of their latest book 'Online Stores for DUMMIES' to anyone that signs up for a new 3dcart store! The book is packed with all the steps you'll need to get you off the ground & running.
When designing your store, you obviously should be focused on your customers' experience, but what some merchants and designers forget is that not every customer is the same. Beyond just design preferences, a portion of your potential customer-base has different abilities and needs when it comes to being able navigate and interact with the Internet. That is why designing with web accessibility in mind is so important.

When it comes to eCommerce design, every decision matters because aspect of your design impacts conversion...even the colors. Offline merchants have been using color tactics for centuries to lure customers in with advertisements or window displays so it makes sense that online merchants use color to influence the consumer too.
KISSmetrics published this interesting guide to the affect color have on eCommerce:
When nature sweeps away the snow, we break out the squeegee and broom to get our own matters in order too. But spring cleaning can mean much more than shiny floors and smudge-free window.
To any consumer, the very first introduction of a brand is its logo. A logo to a brand is as important as a signature to a person, without which the identity of both is incomplete. To understand just about how strongly a logo influences the mind; think of any big brand name like Nike. Your mind immediately projects a little swoosh.That is the power of a logo. You didn’t think about shoes or sportswear because to a consumer the logo is the brand.
