Most other online store systems generate pages "dynamically", as the user views them. Dynamically generated Web pages are ignored by search engines. This is a disaster for an online store, where sales are proportional to traffic. Yahoo Store generates true, static pages. That, combined with their submitter and support for meta tags, means that Yahoo Store's sites get maximum traffic from search engines.
Yahoo! Store has the most complete tracking tools of any online store system. You can see where visitors came from and how much money visitors from each source spent. We can even show what they were searching for in search engines, and how much people searching for each phrase spent. We can provide you with statistics including page views, visits, sales volume, and conversion rate, for any time period, in graphs generated on the fly.
Once completed, all areas of your store can be easily managed from your store manager:
Already have a web site and want to add a store? We can even add online ordering to an existing site, Y! Store is the best way to do it. We will design a store with Y! Store and link the two sites together. We have used this technique, and it works perfectly. For example, we have developed several sites hosted on another server but the "Shop Online" button points to a store made with Y! Store. We can also design your store and have it reside in a frame on your main site.
Using Yahoo! Store you have the scalability to manage very large, high-traffic sites. You will find that these stores will meet even the most demanding needs! High order volumes are no problem. Yahoo! Store can handle over 5000 completed orders per hour, and its database export feature lets you pull orders into your database or spreadsheet with one click.
