    Hi Matt,
    I hired an amazing web designer that has now taken a new career in real estate.. My site needs to be updated (I have pictures of new products etc). Is there someone at Volusion that can help me?

      Hi Michael, thanks for watching! Communication is key, especially to help ensure the project moves along at the right pace and you end up with the final product that you’re looking for.

    Do you have any customers in the Electronic Test & Measurement industry? I’m looking to redesign my website (www.tesales.com) and would like to know what you could suggest. I do have a .csv file with my data. Does that mean I could upload all my products w/ info & pics to my new Volusion site if I decide to go with you?

      Hi Marc, thanks for the question! I think that one of our Ecommerce Consultants would be able to best help you with your inquiries and can provide some advice on a site redesign. If you’ve got a .csv file, you’ll be able to use our import/export tool to facilitate the upload of your products to your new Volusion store. I’ll pass along your email address and have them reach out. Hope this helps, and thanks for watching!
