Volusion is an award-winning eCommerce platform that offers an all-in-one shopping cart software. It provides hosting service and features a user-friendly interface that you can master quickly. Besides the platform’s ease of use, we love Volusion’s proactive and consistent updates to ensure the platform is staying on top of the eCommerce needs.
Let’s explore some of the Volusion updates in 2017.
Drag-And-Drop Content Builder
Volusion is all about creating a painless web development process for merchants. The Volusion Content Builder allows you to directly edit article pages and text on your storefront with pre-made layouts. You can also enhance the layouts with your own HTML content. With the Content Builder, you can now format and edit your content within seconds.
eCommerce activities continue to shift toward mobile. Volusion spotted the trend and made several updates to the Volusion Mobile App, compatible with smartphones, tablets, and even Apple Watch! You can now manage your product listings and orders at your fingertips. The app allows you to track your store’s performance and sends you an alert if there’s a low inventory.
If you use a smartwatch, whether it’s Android or Apple, Volusion has it covered. The new app integration allows you to track and view customer information, order status, and more. You can also check your sales report and inventory within the same app.
Online merchants need to take advantage of the Amazon marketplace to drive sales and establish their online presence. Volusion offers an Amazon integration that allows you to create and manage product listings on Amazon from the same dashboard. You can monitor your inventory and sales across the platforms easily.
20+ New Theme Designs
Volusion released over 20 new themes this year. The platform offers free and premium themes that are modern and responsive. If you choose to use a premium theme, the platform has dropped the pricing to $180 (some of them used to cost $900!). The Volusion team has promised to deliver new designs every month moving forward so you can expect to always have updated themes available for your store.
Volusion now offers a quick process on getting an SSL certificate for your website. You can purchase directly from Volusion and it’s free of installation fee. With your store’s URL appearing as “https” instead of “http,” search engines like Google and Bing will automatically know your website is secure.
Moving to Google Cloud
Volusion prides itself in providing 99.9% uptime availability. However, as Volusion’s client base expands, the platform needs to handle the increasing volume and demand. The platform announced that it’s in the process of moving to Google Cloud Platform, which means Volusion merchants can enjoy faster load times and better network reliability.
