We’re well into 2019 now—meaning there’s an application for EVERYTHING.

And that ALSO means your customers can buy anything online. So why not add your business to the mix?

But if you need applications for building your online business, then you’ve got a LOT of options.

There’s a lot of software around that will let you build a website that can sell products to customers.

The two most popular of these are probably Shopify and WooCommerce, but there are many others, with a range of abilities and prices.

Volusion Review 2019

Reading Time: 6 min read

Volusion Review

Volusion is a complete e-commerce website builder that offers web design, marketing and a whole range of other business tools.

I found Volusion to be on par with other leading e-commerce builders such as Shopify, Bigcommerce or Magento.

Before I get into more details about Volusion, let me provide a brief introduction about the company.

Volusion was started in 1999 and currently serves more than 1,80,000 online stores.

LemonStand Review: Pros and Cons Based on my overall Experience

Reading Time: 7 min read

Have you heard the news about LemonStand?

Well, I guess you probably haven’t. I haven’t either. I tried looking and I didn’t really find anything, or at least nothing credible from a major news outlet.

That’s a good thing though! Why? Because it means nothing significantly bad has happened. It means that LemonStand at least does its job, that there haven’t been any major security breaches, that LemonStand isn’t scamming its customers.

But in the world of hosting and e-commerce, you better believe LemonStand is pretty well known. Find just about any article about the top e-commerce options, and chances are a good number of them will have a solid mention of LemonStand.

So what’s the deal with this quiet, yet well-performing hosting option? The option that’s routinely ranked among the big names in the hosting world, Shopify, BigCommerce, and Volusion but without all the big press of those famous heavyweights?

Well, you’ll find out soon enough, but let me just say that LemonStand easily deserves its position as a top e-commerce platform, and in my humble opinion, it may even deserve to be ranked even higher than the norm for quite a few users.

3dcart Review: Cons & Pros after Using it! [2019]

Reading Time: 8 min read

Have you heard the news? 3dcart is releasing Version 8 soon, an update that will be the first major upgrade of any top ecommerce platform in 2018.

Well, that’s if you’ve heard of 3dcart in the first place. If you’ve been interested in having a solid platform for your online shop, you’ve probably come across the names Shopify, BigCommerce, Volusion, and so on.

And when you encounter the name 3dcart, it’s not as often—what gives? Is it even worth looking into?

I’ll answer that for you: yes, absolutely. First of all, it’s still generally regarded as one of the top e-commerce platforms, and secondly, it doesn’t slouch on what it offers its clients at all.

Ultimately, I think the deciding factor for most people would just be how it feels, because it doesn’t lack so seriously in any area that it’s an incomparable service to Shopify, BigCommerce, or any other big name.

Shopify Review – My Personal Experience with Pros & Cons

Reading Time: 12 min read

Gearing up for an eCommerce launch is no small task. While there are countless major decisions to be made, few are as important as the ecommerce platform you choose.

In this article I’ll offer my personal insight and review of the Shopify platform.

Choosing Shopify wasn’t an easy decision. While there are more than one hundred eCommerce platforms to choose from, ranging from standalone (like Shopify and BigCommerce) to integrations with existing sites (think Woocommerce or eCommerce add-ons for Wix).

In this Shopify review I’ll take you through the pros and cons as well as the elements that stood out most to me when choosing the platform.

I’ll also dig into other elements I discovered once I got into the backend of the system, like the setup and ease-of-use.
