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.
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.
