Why Brand Labs Recommends Volusion
Volusion was the answer to our search for an off-the-shelf shopping cart that looks great and has all the features needed to run a successful e-commerce store. Brand Labs first began using a custom shopping cart back in 2004. While the flexibility was great (our programmers could do anything!), it was extremely costly in terms of time and effort needed to make new feature updates and to keep the system running. It was clear we needed a pre-built shopping cart because we wanted our sites to stay at the forefront of e-commerce trends. It simply took too long to run our business and update our cart at the same time.
What Volusion provides is a hosted solution that is very customizable. So, we can make the cart look how we want (within inevitable design constraints) but we don’t have to worry about keeping the cart running or adding new features. Volusion has pretty much every feature an e-commerce store needs to run well. Inventory management, Quickbooks integration, SEO-friendly URLs, returns management, CRM system, live shipping rates, PCI-compliant credit card processing, coupons, discounts, and gift certificates are just some of the features included in Volusion. Since we’re Volusion experts, we’re able to quickly build the best looking Volusion template designs out there.
Since Volusion has so many great, time-saving features, a store owner can focus on marketing their e-commerce site once it’s running. There are so many ways to market your Volusion store that you can take advantage of since you don’t have to worry about keeping your shopping cart software running.
