Overall Satisfaction with Volusion

The Volusion platform provides the entire online shopping functionality for the companies I work with. It provides a single solution to handle all the ins and outs of selling online and does so with an intuitive and robust interface. From a features and functionality standpoint, you can't beat the 'bang for the buck'.

Pros

  • Volusion has just the right amount of customization. Any less and your hands would be tied. More and your development costs would be out of reach for most small businesses.
  • Volusion's free 24/7 support is a huge asset to any business.

Cons

  • The html markup is extremely out-dated.
  • Some level of layout customization on the product page would be nice.
  • Due to their outdated html markup, responsive websites are a hack-job.
  • The overall customer experience is vastly improved since moving to Volusion.
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.
If you want/need a platform that is feature-rich without breaking the bank - it's fantastic and something you can grow into. If you need heavy visual customization, Volusion may not be the best fit for you. While Volusion has hundreds of features, you'll need to make sure your short list of features that are important or critical to your business are part of that list because if Volusion doesn't have a feature you want or need, it's not likely something that can be added. The customization options are mostly limited to visual appearance. We cannot change how the system works or add functionality that isn't already there.
