Likelihood to Recommend

1ShoppingCart

It's really user preference. Some people have been told by other colleagues that it's a great system to use so they want to go with that. There are other systems that do exactly the same thing. I have not found that 1ShoppingCart has any unique features that would lead me to persuade a client to use it over another one. I usually have clients look at two or three options and give feedback. Sometimes it comes down to monthly prices.

Volusion

For a small business in need of a few more tools than basic platforms, Volusion is a good option. However, if you want infinitely customizable [tools] or to have multiple integrations extracting your orders and products data, then Volusion is quite limited. Additionally, if you lack in-house development teams, Volusion is a good product that is friendly for users who are not necessarily tech-savvy.

Pros

  • Email broadcasts are super easy with 1ShoppingCart
  • Affiliate set up and management is easy
  • Friendly and informative user interface
  • Easy access to aggregate data and exports
  • Great for small businesses who need a few more tools than most basic e-commerce platforms offer

Cons

  • The UI needs improvement. There are other systems out there that are more intuitive.
  • Customizing/branding a shopping cart page can be a little tricky - when it should be very simple.
  • Volusion could offer more free modern responsive themes.

If I were in charge of the renewal decision I would really take a look at 1SC vs. Infusionsoft. There are many ways each are great and many ways they are different. I would look at what was best for my company and make the choice accordingly. I find that Infusionsoft has many more ways to intuitively market, segment and cultivate new leads and grow the business as a whole than 1SC currently has.

The people are based in the US. There is no language barrier. They are extremely well trained and bright people. They are not under the gun to get me off the phone. They care about solving my problem then and there.

There is no other customer service organization that I have dealt with either in the US or abroad (gasp) that comes close to providing the excellent customer service that I receive from Volusion.

Do it during your low season, if you have one. Test all functionality before going live. Be sure Volusion has your URL.

Alternatives Considered

Again, it's the client that usually selects the system they want to use. I think 1ShoppingCart has lower monthly payment options so that makes it more appealing. Infusionsoft has a $2k payment that must be made in order to use their product
Volusion offered a better price point for nearly identical features.

Return on Investment

  • Faster lead conversion, definitely
  • Increased order-fulfillment time
  • Increased customer service response time
  • Increased customer interaction
  • Streamlined inventory management
