One of the biggest reasons that Volusion has become such a popular ecommerce platform is that the system itself is designed to be very easy to use. This allows people with all levels of experience in web design and development to create a storefront without suffering through a steep learning curve or endless hours trying to figure out what to do.

Everything is built into the basic Volusion site, from the shopping cart to inventory control and management. However, there are a lot of limitations on how much you can customize these features without knowing about programming. This is where our Volusion developer becomes a major asset for your website.

Developer or Designer?

In general terms, the developer deals with the programming and underlying functionality of the site and the designer handles the look and customer experience portion. Most developers and designers, especially with our company, work closely together on the website to create a good all-around experience for both the site owner as well as the end-users.

If you are hiring a Volusion developer, we recommend looking for a Volusion specialist team. This will allow you to address all your site’s issues from SEO to integration of apps to customization at one time, giving you a terrific website at launch.

Hiring on Price

We understand that starting an ecommerce website isn’t a low-cost proposition and that most small businesses, entrepreneurs, and startup ecommerce sites don’t have an unlimited budget.

Hiring a website developer based on price alone literally guarantees you are getting what you paid for. It takes training, ongoing professional development, experience, and technical skills to be a top developer, all of which cost time and money. However, hiring the most expensive person isn’t necessarily the best option either.

Instead, look for an experienced, expert developer and team that offer a package of services that will fit into your budget. Hiring an inexperienced, low-cost developer often ends up costing you in the long run, as there will be ongoing issues and problems you will have to pay to have resolved over time.

The Proof

When hiring a Volusion developer we also strongly recommend you ask for references and take a look at the work the developer and their team have completed for other businesses.

If you like what you see and you get positive recommendations from past customers running ecommerce businesses similar to yours, we think that is a great indicator that you have selected a top developer and company for your website project.
