Very happy

2014-04-28

Myself and my husband run a pet products business called Jimbella Pets. 6 years ago we set up our website through Ashop and overall we've been happy with them ever since. We went through some issues when version 4 was released last August just like MrD said in his review. At the time, we had a look around at other options, but they either were too expensive, didn't have enough features or charged a transaction fee on our sales. So we decided to stick with Ashop and a couple of months later they had fixed up most of the problems with version 4. They apologised and even gave us some free design work. I don't know what happened with version 4, but since about October 2013 everything has been running really smoothly for us. There are a couple of new features we love such as conditional emails for getting customers to come back after they abandon the basket. This has helped our sales.

Pros

Admin interface is much easier to use than Bigcommerce. Good value (the $25 plan does everything we need)

Cons

Designing the store was a bit tricky. I've learned it's just easier to pay someone to do the design work rather than try and do it myself. Ashop provides design services too, and I've been pretty happy with the results.

Really good for wholesalers

2014-04-28

I switched my store from bigcommerce to ashop last year and so far i'm pretty happy with the decision.

Pros

Really, really good B2B module. It's like having a separate website for wholesale clients where i can display different products and set up different discounts. For example, I only offer quantity discounts to wholesale clients.

Cons

The support is 24-hours Mon-Fri only, not weekends. This isn't a big deal for us as we're closed on weekends, but this might be an issue if you have a day job and your running an online store on weekends.
