Positive Customer Review
Fortune3 review = 5 out of 5 star rating
Great Ecommerce Software
Extremely easy to use and great customer support, especially for those that really need some help setting up an ecommerce store. Great features and started climbing fast in the search engines once I set up my products to start selling online.

Fragmented Software and Lousy Tech Support
Aside from the fact that they try to hide the fact that they charge a transaction fee, their software is fragmented, disjointed, and buggy.

It is broken up into two parts- a so-called Wizard that runs on your PC (sorry, MAC users), and a web interface. There is overlap between the two which causes confusion. If you make a product change, you can not preview the changes without first uploading your store, which means it goes on-line. You then have to upload it a second time to be able to create a rescue file- otherwise you can not retrieve your store. There is even a situation where you have to do a dummy upload from your PC when you use their web interface, otherwise changes made on the web interface won't take effect. Ridiculous!

Customer support is insulting and rude. They consistently push back if you report a problem in their software to them. For example, if you click on a product, and a DIFFERENT product opens for editing, they say that is fine and there is no problem.

Fortune3 offers an over-priced and very clumsy approach to eCommerce, and their support is worthless. If you need eCommerce, go elsewhere.
