Volusion is a leading eCommerce platform offering operational solutions, such as inventory management and customer management.
Its model is a mix between being all-inclusive and self-serve. This differs to many other eCommerce site providers.
It provides users with the tools they need to get started, as well as offering the user some control and customization.
Volusion is designed in a way to help businesses spend more time on actually selling their products rather than learning or hiring internal resources to work on their site.
Thus, suiting freelancers, small businesses, and not-for-profit organizations. With this in mind, some of their 180,000 customers include Teatrition, Fitness Finders, and Chicago Offroad.
Using Google Website Translator, Volusion also supports multiple languages, allowing users to sell globally.
However, its supported countries are currently Canada, UK and US and supported languages are limited to English.
Overall, this is best suited to people who are looking for an all-encompassed, hosted platform for a product catalog, shopping cart, and checkout.
Ideally, they will also have some access to web development.
There are a number of advantages to using this shopping cart. The following are some of the most common benefits users have mentioned:
With many other eCommerce platforms, ensuring you have done everything to keep your site secure and fast can be complicated and time-consuming.
However, with today’s typical online shopper having a little patience and using their payment details, it’s essential these areas are covered. Volusion ensures both security and site speed.
Using sites such as Shopify often encourages people to use off-site tools such as inventory management which can be costly.
Volusion has many on-site operational features, including inventory management that synchronizes with other platforms like Amazon.
Arguably the biggest feature appreciated by entrepreneurs using the platform is its customer service.
While there are many people and resources set up to help people create their eCommerce store, few platforms offer tailored support specifically to your business.
This is a huge advantage for people with little to no time to research or learn how to design their site, but still, want to uphold a quality site.
