Strong on sales but difficult to use
Volusion is a good ecommerce platform that allows you to create a fully functioning online store in minutes. However, it unfortunately has a few limitations, which hold it back from being as solid as BigCommerce or Squarespace.
- Good range of sales features
- Highly detailed product management
- Website themes are good-looking and professional
- Navigating around the backend can be confusing
- A lot of useful features are reserved for expensive pricing plans
- Could offer a few more sales channels

|Verdict||The best ecommerce platform with unmatched features, great websites and a scalable platform.||Runs Shopify close with great sales features, but small knowledge base and weaker website design let it down.||Can't match the scalability of the first two, but you'll get a great-looking, easy to use sales website.||A good alternative to BigCommerce with better web design. Can be confusing to use, though.||Like Squarespace, Wix isn't as scalable for big businesses, makes creating a sales site easy||Has some advantages over Wix when it comes to sales features, but Weebly's overall platform isn't as compelling|
