  • Up to 100 products for the Mini plan

The Bad

  • SSL Certificates
  • Additional Costs

SSL Certificates

Although Volusion offers high quality SSL certificates, these certificates aren't always the cheapest option. The SSL certificates can range from $89 all the way to nearly $1,000.

Additional Costs

Volusion offers many eCommerce features for hosting an online shop. Although there are a variety of features included with each plan, you will most likely pay additional costs for further customizable features. Pricing can vary so be sure to know what features are included with your monthly service. Although Volusion claims to have no transaction fees or credit card rates associated with purchases, all eCommerce platforms require a merchant service which will most likely have a transaction fee. As well, many competitors offer a longer trial period to try out the product, but Volusion only offers a 14-day trial period.

The Bottom Line

Volusion is a great eCommerce company with high quality tools available for you in one easy-to-navigate place. From shop designs and themes, to the back-end hosting and security, Volusion has optimal options that have been successful for thousands of businesses online. Ultimately you may decide to pay extra for added features, but you can enjoy some of the benefits today by signing up for Volusion's 14-day free trial.

Administrative interface is clean and simple. I added all the products I wanted in a matter of minutes. It's super easy to filter through orders and products too.

I don't give a 10 rating because I have had a couple of issues. First the USPS live rates came back high for a period of time and trying to add coupon codes was a nightmare. I've tried other platforms though and these were minor set backs in comparison.

I have used Volusion now for a few years. When I have had a problem, I have received help from the reps. Sometimes the reps aren't the most helpful, but my issues were always resolved eventually. It does what I need it to, so I have been happy.
