I've also used Shopify as a base platform, as well as Magento. Both are better. My company has looked into moving there twice since I've been here, and the only thing stopping them is the complications of making such a move. I think Shopify offers similar value for the money with a cleaner albeit more minimalist look. Both are better options in my opinion. I would only recommend Volusion if someone had used it before and doesn't plan on making it a crucial part of their business plan.

Again, we work with all of these platforms, not just Volusion. However, we do make recommendations for Volusion based on the size of client and the need for additional customization and tuning. For clients who lack major development resources in house to maintain a platform like Magento or Salesforce Commerce Cloud, but still want some of the additional customizations that aren't available in smaller platforms like Shopify and 3dcart, Volusion is a good, affordable option.

Volusion provided the best overall list of features, performance history, and bang for the buck. By not being the new kid on the block, they have worked out a lot the bugs and kinks that plague many ecommerce platforms. They've also refined a system that is very user-friendly for both customers and store administrators.

I would say overall Volusion offers very similar solutions to these other platforms. One of the main reasons I went with it over others was my experience working on Volusion stores for years before we opened our own stores and took on new clients. I'm comfortable with the interface and it has been around for a long time.

We use Shopify and while the monthly fee is slightly higher than Volusion, working within Shopify and the visual results you get...it's not even close. Volusion seems very outdated and overcomplicated, but looking for positives with Volusion, again, I'm paying an additional $40 on average for some warehouse and inventory functionality that is free, and pretty robust on Volusion.

We use Yahoo for our wholesale division and I found it to be very difficult to use and their customer support was terrible.

In comparison, we selected Volusion for our retail web store because it was much more intuitive, gave us more design options and the customer support was great.

Volusion makes the creation of a store a simple process even for a beginner. More importantly, for advanced users it allows to work fast, efficiently, and with efficacy due to its bulk import/export functionality. Shopify is aesthetically pleasing and Magento is an open source solution (more freedom), but Volusion's core E-commerce, product management, and order/customer management functionalities simply Never fail, not matter what. All the while you are 10,000 SKUs while changing 3,000 of them.

While k-eCommerce was very glamorous to us because it integrates with our main workflow, it just didn't have some of the marketing features that are so integral to the way we do business online. The set-up costs were also way too high. Volusion is so affordable and feature heavy, it makes it very difficult for any shopping cart provider to compete. You can find others who are competitively priced and have similar features, but they simply aren't as robust (at least for the way we use it).
