Volusion Review

By Adam  |  4 Oct 2015 12:00:00

If you want to start an eCommerce website, there are lots of tools available on the internet which can help you to do that. Volusion is one of the better regarded of these services and so I decided to investigate them. Most people in the eCommerce world know Volusion and so they must be doing something right! So here is my review of Volusion; you might just be surprised about some of the things which I have to say!

 

Volusion provides you with the tools you need to create your own eCommerce system. It's all pretty straightforward and anybody could use it. Depending on which package you go for, there are also several additional features like social media marketing tools, email marketing tools and a CRM database. That's all good and quite useful for people who want to take their businesses online. However, Volusion has some pretty significant down sides which are going to spoil the experiences of many who use it. Firstly, and I won't get too technical here, but because of the way that's it's made, you'll be having to pay large bills for bandwidth over usage if you create an eCommerce website with Volusion which becomes successful. Plus, every single page on your website will have a big ugly Volusion logo on it which links back to their main website; this can be removed for a fee but as you're already paying to use them, you should hardly have to pay more to remove their links! Big Volusion logos will not make your website look very professional. That's to say nothing of the very limited powers they give you to edit your site and the fact that they are known for their unhelpful customer support line. You'll be paying a lot for a service that has all of these flaws when you could actually pay less for a service which does the same things, but lacks the flaws and has a lower price tag.

 

Sellr gives you all the tools you need to create your very own eCommerce website and the different sized packages cover social media marketing, email marketing, a CRM database and the other useful features that Volusion also provides. But you'll only have a Sellr logo on your website if you use our free package because, yes, you can even use Sellr for free (compared to Volusion's minimum of £9 a month) and all of our other packages are better value for money too. We don't have any of the flaws Volusion has, but we do have its strengths, so if you were thinking about starting an eCommerce website, think about Sellr. Also if you already made an eCommerce website with Volusion, you've nothing to lose by switching to Sellr!
