What is Volusion?

Volusion is an all-in-one ecommere platform that enables you to set up a store in minutes, with features that will keep you selling for years to come. Here are some of the most notable features Volusion merchants have at their fingertips:

Why Volusion?

No Transaction or Listing Fees, Ever

When we say “no transaction or listing fees,” we mean it. Unlike Etsy, Volusion doesn’t penalize you for your success, which allows you to be more profitable.


There are listing fees and final sale fees on Etsy, as well as the PayPal processing fee, which can really add up if you list a lot of items.

Make Your Website Your Own

Unlike Etsy, Volusion offers a complete ecommerce solution so you can quickly start selling on a website that's truly yours.

Volusion offers hundreds of free, fully customizable design themes to build a brand that's as unique as your handmade products. Not only that, you also have the freedom to sell and market your products everywhere, including Facebook, Google and Amazon.


There is a limit to how much personalization a customer can do through an Etsy listing. Whereas on my own website, I can make the experience much better for my customers.

Shine the Spotlight on Your Product

With more than 30 million items listed on Etsy, it can be next to impossible for shoppers to find your products among thousands of listings. By building an online store with Volusion, you can place your merchandise front and center — and customers won't be distracted by your competitors.


As sellers, we were lucky in the old days that Etsy helped us get our businesses off the ground and reach a wider audience, but now it just seems like you list something and it gets lost in the noise.
