E-commerce shopping cart software provider 3DCart has announced an upgrade that brings online shopping directly into the realm of social and mobile media. For the first time, retailers using 3DCart 3.2 can post their products to Twitter and Facebook with a single click, integrate YouTube videos into their product descriptions and allow consumers to browse and buy from their smartphones.
Additional new features of 3DCart 3.2 include 30 new storefront templates, a new drag-and-drop edit bar, built-in photo editing using Picnik, 3DZoom product close-ups and more. There are over 50 new features in all, and 3DCart 3.2 is available immediately to current and new users.
Another new cart from "relationship-commerce" innovator OpenSky introduces a secure checkout technology that can be distributed to any site, allowing OpenSky sellers to integrate shopping seamlessly throughout their content. The OpenSky platform enables bloggers and experts to sell unique products without worrying about inventory, customer service, shipping or transaction technology.
The new OpenSky cart will function on all websites in the OpenSky community, so that shoppers can use one cart to check out products from any OpenSky seller. OpenSky’s growing catalog hosts more than a thousand manufacturers that rely on the tight integration to drive page-views, engagement and commerce.
