Today, we’re very much pleased to announce that we’ve strengthened our relationship with Volusion! While we’ve had a Volusion integration for ShipStation for some time now, we’ve been working with the booming e-commerce company, and are delighted to tell you that we are now a certified Volusion Partner!
Volusion is a leading e-commerce software platform, powering thousands of e-commerce sites like 3M, Deloitte, and Nalgene. They’ve got a fantastic and very helpful blog where their “2-minute Tuesday” videos and regular postings help companies great and small succeed in the ecommerce world. They also boast free 24/7 support via phone, e-mail, and live chat. If you’re looking for a new shopping cart platform, and already use ShipStation, give them a look.
We really look forward to working tightly with Volusion to help bring all parties involved (meaning, you, too!) the greatest service and software available. We love helping our customers succeed, and making your lives easier, and we’re excited for the opportunity to do that on a more personal level with Volusion and their merchants.
Have you been experiencing slower than expected processing speeds with ShipStation? If so, we have some news that we’d like to share.
If you prefer or need to use Internet Explorer over any other browser, then we have found a way to help. To increase the overall speed and performance of ShipStation through your Internet Explorer browser versions 6, 7, 8 and 9, you can install a Google Chrome plug-in called the Google Chrome Frame. The plug-in can be downloaded from the following link. Just hit “Accept and Install”, and you’re on your way to a much faster ShipStation (note, you will need to restart Internet Explorer after installing the plug-in).
Note that the plug-in is only used for web sites that explicitly support the Google Chrome Frame, which ShipStation does, so it won’t affect any other sites that you regularly visit. For your convenience, we have included a video to help better explain how Google Chrome Frame works:
We hope that you have found this information helpful and that you are now experiencing ShipStation as it was intended – sleek, powerful, and FAST!
