Volusion Demoted for Complaints on Hidden Charges, Bandwidth Fees & Downtime

Volusion PCI security fee update Today we decided to remove 1.5 stars from Volusion‘s ranking, moving them from 3rd place to 7th place on our Top 10 Ecommerce Platform List. James and I have been recommending Volusion to individuals looking to sell online for well over a year now. After countless emails and comments complaining about Volusion downtime, bandwidth charges and customer support, and now looking at Volusion’s decision to smack a hidden and undisputable charge of up to $25 on each of their merchants, it only made sense to reevaluate their platform and standing. After careful consideration, we removed stars from Volusion’s “pricing” ranking, which affected their overall score enough to take them from our Top 3 and put them to #7. What do you think about Volusion? Were you affected by their “PCI Security Fee”? Let us know in the comments.
