    Big Cartel LLC

    It's well suited for simple e-commerce and basic inventory management needs.

    I would tell a colleague to stay clear of Yahoo Web Hosting/Yahoo Small Business. Our business has been with Yahoo due to the fact that there was nothing else around at the time of our signing up with them. Since then there are much better alternatives as the fact that Yahoo has virtually no third party support really hurts it, and the fact that it is so barebones and hard to customize and work in the back end makes it so that you have to find one of the few expensive developers that specialize in Yahoo. This is another huge hurdle if you plan to build a good website.

    Pros

    Big Cartel LLC

    • It's very easy to use and does not require a lot of configuration or setup.
    • It has been extremely reliable. Clients never have issues with purchasing from it and it has always has been up for us.
    • It's very fast. It loads quick both on the consumer/front end and also admin/backend.
    • Pricing model is flat, not percentage of transactions.

    Yahoo (Verizon Media)

    • Yahoo Web Hosting/Small Business is above else, cheap in pricing at the very least in terms of monthly costs.
    • The backend of Yahoo Web Hosting/ Small Business is customizable, assuming you can find one of the few developers that can code for it.
    • We were given a dedicated account manager though I believe it was because of how long we were with yahoo and how many complaints we had.

    Cons

    Big Cartel LLC

    • For our needs I really can't think of anything!

    Yahoo (Verizon Media)

    • Extremely old and outdated back end.
    • Yahoo Web Hosting is at the very least customizable but everything beyond just running a simple store requires custom work that you will have to pay an expensive developer to fix for you.
    • Yahoo Web Hosting is a complete mess in terms of branding and policies. In the span of our last year with them, they went from Yahoo to Yahoo small business to Aabaco and then back to Yahoo and each time were assigned a different account manager.
    • Abysmal customer service, every time we had to open a ticket we had a customer service agent in India that could not fix our issue and we were eventually assigned an account manager after numerous complaints.
    • Barely any apps or app eco system on Yahoo.
    • Frequent down times caused by Yahoo Web Hosting cost our business lots of lost revenue.
    • So antiquated and backwards, they were one of the last companies that I know of to switch over to https, we reached out to them several times to switch our website to https and it took an agonizing amount of time for Yahoo to implement it for all their customers.

      Yahoo (Verizon Media)

      The customer support for Yahoo Web hosting is a complete disaster. Every call is transferred to a technical support department that is in India which usually isn't an issue as that is the norm for a lot of businesses, however, this technical support team in Yahoo does not know how to diagnose issues or offer support. Every issue we had some, some critical like why is our website down were met with clueless customer support agents that would get back to us in 48 hours minimum. Eventually, we were given an account manager that actually did his best and was able to get to the right people at times for critical issues but it still was a complete hassle and waste of time every time we had any issue with Yahoo Web hosting.

      Yahoo (Verizon Media)

      After we departed Yahoo Web hosting we found out that there are numerous much better web hosting platforms, the main we focused on were Shopify, GoDaddy, BigCommerce, and WordPress. Between either is a much better alternative than Yahoo Web hosting as they all have much better third party support, more familiarity in the platforms which means more developers that are familiar with the platforms. Above all else, all three of these companies have stood the test of time and haven't rebranded themselves into different company names like Yahoo did with Aabaco and back and are much better for any small business.

      Return on Investment

      Big Cartel LLC

      • The basic plan at $10/month easily saves us that in time from having to manage our own e-commerce system on our own site.

      Yahoo (Verizon Media)

      • Yahoo Web Hosting impacted our business in a very negative way with all the time we wasted and revenue we lost.
      • Our biggest loss of revenue was deciding to stay longer than we had to with Yahoo Web Hosting as the cost of moving to another platform was high but we had no choice.
      • Yahoo Web Hosting constantly interfered with our workflow with its lack of third party support and poor customer service and constant downtimes.
      • For instance when we wanted to find an inventory system for our business virtually NO ONE supported Yahoo.
