How does SearchFit stack up against the competition? We think we do pretty well.
3D Cart offers a suite of services that focus on Customer Friendly Shopping. It has a solid feature set and a moderate library of plugins that can fill some store owners’ needs. Hosting and set up are included in the monthly fee and the company offers a strong customer support system. Although its shopping features are supported mostly by plugins, 3D Cart maintains a solid offering that includes product brand pages, wish lists, dynamic product filters, compare products, repeat past orders and much more. 3D Cart also offers integrations with Google Shopping, PriceGrabber, Shopzilla that include automated feeds. And, 3D Cart includes a WordPress plugin that allows store owners to sell on WordPress. It includes a drop shipping system and integrates via plugin with a few of the most popular ERP’s such as StoneEdge and QuickBooks.
Although 3D Cart has an emphasis on Customer Friendly Shopping, it lacks many of features that SearchFit has to offer.
SearchFit’s Power Search includes advanced learning, intelligent results, auto-complete in the search field and more. Product filters and options can be used as search filters allowing your customers to further refine search results. Power Search offers reporting features that show store owners what people are searching for and how many results were returned for each search including empty results. Store owners can use this information to tailor their product offering based on what customers are searching for. The site search is extremely efficient; it can search over 200k products and return results in milliseconds. Search results criteria can be weighted and adjusted by store owners to refine search results for their customers.
SEO is another area where SearchFit excels when compared to 3D Cart. SearchFit offers SEO Naming Rules that allow store owners to set naming conventions for every type of page’s meta content, name, image and even product names. SEO practitioners can import keywords into various database fields at all category levels and products and set rules to apply them for every page.
When it comes to product management, SearchFit has the advantage again. SearchFit allows store owners to apply combined sku’s for different product option selections. UPC numbers and inventory can also be applied to the combined sku. In addition, SearchFit allows for scheduled product imports and inventory updates which not only apply to products but to combined sku’s as well letting store owners easily manage their option inventory.
Another advantage for SearchFit is that it offers multi-store publishing for store owners who need to publish multiple websites and want to manage all of them from a single shopping cart admin panel. Store owners can publish to multiple domain names, sell different products, and use different website templates on each site. Each store can also sell in different currencies or show different prices and product descriptions.3dcart name and logo copyright © 3dcart, Inc.
