Free Features - No Bolt-On Fees

Our platform is enriched with hundreds of features, however unlike Shopify we don’t charge you additional fees to add them to your store, which makes our solution a more cost effective option for many retailers. We also don’t charge you for every store transaction, and by working closely with industry partners across the globe, we’re able to secure you competitive rates for third party services such as payment gateways and review systems.

Dedicated Growth Support

We’re incentivised to ensure your store achieves amazing results, and we assign a dedicated eCommerce Strategist to every retailer we work with. Your strategist will act as your primary point of contact at Visualsoft, pulling together internal teams for each individual opportunity and challenge to help grow your business online.

Behind the scenes, our development teams also make continuous enhancements and additions to our platform which your store benefits from each time we release new features and performance improvements, exclusively available to retailers on our Optimum solution.

UK Expertise

Canadian firm Shopify doesn’t have a strong physical presence in the UK, however all of Visualsoft’s teams are based here. We have an unrivalled understanding of the UK’s retail landscape in terms of logistics, competition, opportunities and legislation (hello, Brexit), and we’re best placed to advise you on how to achieve both national and global growth. Being UK-based also enables us to build long-lasting partnerships with the retailers we work with through regular reviews and catch-ups, retail site visits, and exclusive events.
