Oracle CX Commerce (formerly Oracle Commerce Cloud) is very well suited for B2B commerce transactions. The wonderful thing about this software is its ability to regularly update on an automatic basis, and keep up with upgrades. Oracle CX Commerce provides my organization with greater flexibility and quick integration processes. I would recommend this to any organization trying to set up their own storefront.

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.
Read full review Pros It uses an effective algorithm to provide users with product recommendations based on other products they’ve previously viewed. It comes with a decent support platform, where Oracle is attentive and provides help diagnosing issues that may arise within the environment. Oracle CX Commerce comes with a developer tool known as the DCU Tool, which is very helpful when it comes to pushing changes from environment to environment. The DCU Tool is also a good resource to use for source control. Read full review 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. Read full review Cons Customer experience - Oracle CX is already a leader and I bet they'll make it even better surpassing all expectations. They've [been] the best eCommerce model solution for any kind of business at least for book publishing and logistics management - thus can't complain here either. Read full review Extremely old and outdated back end.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.

Oracle Commerce Cloud is definitely not my favorite platform to use, however our company has gotten very comfortable with the way our website operates using it so I do not see us switching to a different product any time soon. Over time, I’ve grown to have a love/hate relationship with this product, but as I learn more about what it offers I come to appreciate its functionality more

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.

The upgrade cycle of OCC and the subscription model ensure we are always on the latest and greatest version of the platform. The responsive design makes it easier for small departments to provide an optimum mobile experience. The stability of the platform is far superior to our on-prem solution.

After we departed Yahoo Web hosting we found out that there are numerous much better web hosting platforms, the main we focused on were
. 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.

Sharing data and communication improved greatly between legal/finance and marketing. Read full review 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. Read full review ScreenShots
