Yahoo has completed their changes to the Yahoo Shopping Cart as of yesterday.

I apologize for not getting this news to you sooner, but have been in bed the last 2 days with an Upper Respiratory Infection.

How do you know if your cart was affected?

The best way is to go to your store and complete the following checklist.

  1. Click on your View Cart links - Verify that they take you to the cart

  2. Add an item to your cart. Do you get the following error?

    Error: order.store.yahoo.com is not a valid URL. Please point all checkout actions to order.store.yahoo.net

    You have encountered a file path that is no longer valid. Please contact the store merchant to continue with your order and to report this error.

  3. Since we are making sure your cart works properly, verify that there are no security warnings popping up in your cart. This could hurt your conversion rates.

If your cart URL is not working properly or adding an item to your cart does not work, we can fix this for you. Visit our Update Add to Cart and Shopping Links page.

If you are seeing security warnings when you click on your cart, give us a call toll free 888-312-7839 and we can help you figure out what is going on.

P.S. You should add an item to your shopping cart at least once a month and verify everything is working properly. You never know when you might have a problem that could be hurting your conversion rates!
