Yahoo! Review: Overview (2 stars)


  • Lots of useful e-commerce tools.
  • Helps you do your own promotion with lots of articles and free credits.
  • Knowledgeable 24/7 phone support.


  • Hard to learn - not user-friendly.
  • Charges transactions fees and has higher monthly fees. No free trial.
  • No useful communication tools for businesses.
  • Poor design (unless you know HTML).

Bottom Line:

Yahoo's builder is a big disappointment. With their reputation, we expected a lot. What we got was a costly builder that charges you a percentage off each sale, is difficult to use, and has almost no business tools.

Price Range: $39.95 to $299.95/month (plus transaction fees)

[*Note: Yahoo Small Business Merchant Solutions (a.k.a. Merchant Solutions) isn't a website builder itself but under this umbrella you can sign up for website/ store hosting, which incorporate the use of online website editors.]
