Best Ecommerce Software for Ease of Use: Volusion
For small businesses that want easy-to-use ecommerce software, Volusion is a good choice. In our testing, it was one of the easiest programs to use to create a website. Adding and editing products, text and images is straightforward, and you can also edit many items directly from the preview. After you sign up, the company offers you a direct point of contact to guide you through the process of setting up your online store, which is a helpful service for businesses creating their first website.
Several free templates are available from Volusion, or you can purchase a premium theme. The software includes a blog and integrates with WordPress. It also integrates with online stores, such as Amazon and eBay, so you can manage your sales and inventory sold through those channels in addition to sales made through your website. You can use Volusion as your credit card processor or choose from more than 35 external payment gateways, including Authorize.Net, Beanstream and PayPal.
Volusion has four plans. Mini costs $15 per month, supports 100 products and includes 1GB of bandwidth. Plus costs $35 per month, supports 1,000 products and includes 3GB of bandwidth. Pro costs $75 per month, supports 10,000 products and includes 10GB of bandwidth. Premium costs $135 per month, supports an unlimited number of products and includes 35GB of bandwidth. If you choose to pay annually rather than monthly, you receive a 10 percent discount. There aren't any additional transaction fees, but if you exceed your bandwidth, you're charged an additional $7 per gigabyte above your plan limit.
