Internet retail platform Volusion has unveiled its thirteenth version. Ecommerce merchants looking to make a switch should pay close attention to what’s inside – namely Ebay integration and Improved ratings and review features. .

Ebay Integration

Merchants on Gold, Platinum and custom plans will now be able to submit fixed price listings on Ebay from the backend of their Volusion store. All products, shipping and payments information can be viewed, and as items are sold on Ebay they appear will as orders within Volusion.

Ratings & Reviews

One of the best new features of the platform is related to ratings and reviews. Merchant products “review stars” will now automatically display in Google search results (see below) as well as across their site; the star ratings and reviews will be featured on categories, search results and featured product pages.

Admin Enhancements

Version 13 from Volusion also brings several improvements to the store administration area. The navigation and styling of the admin area have been enhanced, but Volusion managed to keep the same workflows which will prove important to those transitioning to the upgraded system. Merchants will likely also be excited by the ability to manage their store from tablet devices – from managing inventory, processing orders and accepting payments.

Wrong. This is certainly not Volusion's 13th version. The "13" simply coincides with the upcoming year of 2013. This is evidenced by the fact that previous versions were Winter '09 (2009), and V11 (2011). If Volusion actually had 13 versions, it would probably be a better product, but Volusion is sloooooow to release meaningful Versions or Updates. This "Version" is somewhat meaningless and consists of a couple of new "features" that their competition is already doing and an unnecessary face lift of the admin panel. The admin panel we just revised a few years ago, while many of the front end features either work poorly or not at all. Sure, Volusion claims to be accommodating *their* customers (merchants), but ultimately they are too short sighted to understand how the *merchant's customers* interact with the Volusion platform, which can be archaic. Constant requests for improvement of the front end fall on deaf ears.
