Yahoo! Stores Go Down on Cyber Monday

Cyber Monday: one of the biggest shopping days of the year. And Yahoo stores were down.

Naturally, anyone using Yahoo stores was quite upset by this.

We were having a record weekend and now this...What a disgrace for Yahoo to have issues on one of the most important days of the year. And they have NO ETA as to the fix...

Apparently, shopping carts were timing out. Small business owners are feeling the heat.

What is Yahoo going to give us back in exchange for losing thousands of dollars in sales? A free month?

We had better at least see a VERY large PPC credit with Yahoo to try and make up for this.

The news got heavy coverage throughout cyberspace, with one forum member reporting that a segment was even run on TV. It took about 16 hours to fix, and obviously, that didn't satisfy many.

The reason we pay a premium for Yahoo is to avoid situations like this.

I am extremely disappointed with their reaction (keeping us in the dark) as well.

"Unacceptable and completely unbelievable," they say.
