Shopping Cart Software

Shopping cart testimonials

We just love hearing your feedback!

The following are all long term, real customers giving Ashop Commerce their seal of approval.


I use Ashop Commerce shopping cart software because it doubled my sales. It is customisable, easy to use, returns excellent sales, ranks me high on the search engines and the staff are very helpful. I like their accessibility features as most businesses these days are not able to talk to you when you call or email. All my calls and emails have been answered within 10 minutes, by happy staff focused on my concerns. 

From the moment I first made enquiry with Ashop Commerce, I have felt their total support. 

The day that I decided to use Ashop Commerce shopping cart software I also started building my shop online. I found a Support Staff Member come online and ask if I was okay or needed assistance. He was aware that I was new that day and made a point of being there for me for the next few nights. I found that assistance extraordinary, for business hours were well past. I was quite taken, in fact, that Ashop Commerce bothered to remember me outside business hours, but it made me feel wanted and that I had 100% support where I needed it most ... on the web.


My clients were previously used to seeing me only on eBay and on my old web site where I had tried to put products and prices. I had also delved into using the (name with held) Shopping Cart, but reading in their forums, could see that (name with held) was fraught with pitfalls and problems. None the least being their lack of security for each site. Other Shopping Carts I viewed lacked my needs or were going to present a problem if I needed to communicate with them. (Nothing quite like saying what you need on the phone and having that need answered).

I was spending $400+ a month on eBay fees and doing really well, but also receiving 50+ emails a day from previous Buyers wanting to buy again and know prices, dimensions etc of each product. I was working 4hrs a day answering emails, sending images of products and price lists and talking to customers about the frames.

I could see how eBay worked 24hrs a day and wanted the same for my site, but with Buy It Now prices ... a Shopping Cart. Being online 24hrs a day for your customers is a must ... well in my area anyway. Consumers these days, want to buy it now and receive it on their door step within a few days. If you can't do this, you are losing in today's business of eCommerce.

I set about writing to all my customers and asking what they wanted to see in a Shopping Cart and also how they thought they would be best navigate themselves around ... in other words, what categories etc. 


Oh, how easy was this!!! Now I am not totally computer illiterate, but I am not a professional either, yet I found the simple page builders and category makers so easy to use. Golly did they make my pages look professional when I am not so:))) 

Before I started adding products to my store, I sat down with a pencil and paper. I outlined my major sellers and identified the Brand names. Decided product codes and prices, then I reckoned the categories.

Logging into my shop online, I created my home page and then went on to add categories. The online Manual is handy, but I don't think I have looked at it once since opening my shop.

I found loading images to the site so easy ... and they 'magically' appeared as thumbnails, which meant my customers on dial-up would not be waiting till next century for pages to load that are laden with images.

I set up some email addresses at Ashop with a Technical Support person in 5 minutes and together we ran through the Site Settings ... finding all okay, we published the site.

It took me 4 days to get the majority of my products online and ready ... then a couple of days proof reading ... but in just under 1 week my Shopping Cart was published and functional:))))


Amazingly, 4 hours after the site went online, I had my first sale!! Quickly followed by more and also 100's of emails commending the site and the ease which people could navigate themselves around to view products. My customers are elated that they can now view products and place an order anytime they like. As my business deals mostly with companies, they like to know that they can buy 'x' number of products in one hit, rather than just a few products at one time. Now big orders, take big money ... we all know that. Ashop Commerce's shopping cart software allows the customer to save their cart contents for when they are ready to submit and pay for it. Many of my customers like this feature.

Since the site went online, the emails that arrive here daily have reduced to 4 and instead I am surrounded by orders and happy customers.

Little things to consider that I like as added benefits:

* When a customer lodges an order, you can receive an alert via SMS on your mobile phone.

* The postage rate calculator is actually networked into major shipping company rate calculators.

* As soon as a customer pays for the order, I am notified by PayPal and can send to customer.

* I can direct sales easily by placing them 'On Sale', on the first page ... and customise any other part of my shop.

* I have access on my site, to learning where my referrals were coming from - important in business management.

* I can also view my page statistics and other vital marketing information.

* All orders are retained on the system for future reference.

In closing I would like to say my sales have doubled and I am finding that I can now reduce the dollars I spend each month with eBay. I have more time to devote to other expanding areas of my business and I am 100% satisfied that I made the right decision in acquiring Ashop Commerce. In 5 instances, I have had wholesale enquiries and am now supplying to those customers :))) Potential customers are now confirmed buyers and on the sites' email list.

Whilst I don't have many products at the moment, the site has paid for itself threefold and will allow me to increase my product range as intended in my business projection plans.

I just found Ashop Commerce so easy to give me a presence in the world of eCommerce. 

As a former Business Coach with Action International, I know that Ashop Commerce has everything to arm me for my battle in the business world.

If you are looking for an eCommerce solution, then I personally recommend Ashop Commerce, based on my own experience and also hearing from my very satisfied customers. 




Hi, I am writing this letter to say thanks for offering your wonderful software to clients like myself. I hope that you would post my feedback to encourage others to try Ashop Commerce solution for their business also.

I have searched online for over 2 years in which in this time I performed a demo on 90% off the shopping cart offered to see which fit my needs the best. But my main goal was to find a software that would bring in traffic through having a SEO (Search Engine optimised) or search engine friendly product pages that would raise my rank for my product searches. I have in
the past spent over $10,000+ on paid marketing in which I was not truly pleased with all the results.

I am currently into my 7th week using Ashop Commerce and at this time I have generated enough sales to stop all paid campaigns an let the "FREE" traffic flow into my store, my traffic increases by the day and I receive thousands of weekly visits that continues to grow, I have never used any other ecommerce software that has given me such great results this

The Ashop Commerce software is very easy to use, setup and within just a few hours you can have a store up and ready depending on your products and inventory level, it fits my needs and so much more.

Thanks Ashop for your wonderful software, you have found a customer for life!

It gives me great pleasure to write this THANK YOU to Ashop Commerce. I have been with Ashop Commerce shopping cart software for more than 1 year now. I have found their customer service A-Class and their online help very easy to understand and follow. To be honest with you, I haven't had the need to even refer to their online help as their menu's are so easy to understand. All you do is fill in the blanks. It can't get any easier than this.

Shopping Cart Software Features I love:

-Templates: Extremely customisable, yet easy to use.

-Statistics: I can get a clear understanding of the volume traffic and referrers.

-Inventory: I love that I can place 1 item under as many categories as I like, I love the cross-selling feature.

-Sale and Retail pricing. I can let my customer know who much an item retails for and "my price"

-Custom pages: I love that I can add my info pages on the brands I carry.

-The site can be Search Engine optimised easily (they can do this for you or you can do it yourself)

-Real Time shipping

-I can update my home page easily with specials.

-Easy to navigate

-Pics are automatically sized for me.

-Easy to edit pricing.

I love that Ashop Commerce staff are always ready to assist me. Having and maintaining a website can be daunting especially for someone who has no idea about the internet. You don't need to know html to have a shopping cart with Ashop Commerce. I have become a loyal customer for life with Ashop Commerce and will not consider ever moving to a different platform. I love that I can work on the store myself without depending on anyone to help me.

The only time consuming aspect was getting all the info in. As I carried a lot of items it took me about a good 3 days to get it to what I wanted to look like. But as their platform is so easy to use it was quite exciting to see the results. I am so proud of my site and since I have had the Ashop team optimise it, about 40% of my traffic has now been translating to revenue. I believe it will get higher in time.

I also want to stress to any customers that I do a lot of offline marketing and I don't totally rely on the web for revenue. But since I had my shopping cart optimised I have seen a big difference in traffic.

To sum it up: I love Ashop Commerce!! I love all the updates and I love that they listen to my requests. I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a professional website that is easy to use and it cost effective.

Warmest Regards


Ashop Commerce has been great for our business.

When we were looking for a system to put us on the web we looked at many companies but went with ashop. Ashop has allowed our business to grow.

At the start we used Ashop because it was simple and something we could do ourselves with little financial outlay. Recently, with our business growing, we decided to refresh our website but wanted to stay within Ashop.

We found a graphic designer that could add a more polished look to our graphics and gave our website a facelift all within the Ashop system. This facelift has boosted sales by 300% and still we find the system is still great for us.

We could not recommend this system more highly.

I'd just like to say a BIG thank you to the Ashop team and congratulate you on an incredible piece of software.
Having made the decision to completely rebuild our website and move away from our existing catalog software (very popular and very expensive) I decided to give Ashop a try.
I signed up for the 10 day free trial and within 5 days I knew this was the right product and upgraded to the full package. I'm pretty competent with web design and seo techniques and found it incredibly easy to use Ashop's software. Occasionally I would need to contact Ashop via their live support or support ticket and have been completely satisfied by their prompt help and support.

I've incorporated various features within my website which are not directly available from within the software, like an image upload facility and customer gallery, but they integrate seamlessly.

Ashop is also very SEO friendly in its structure - Now get this - In under 4 weeks I completely rebuilt the website under a new domain name, got it fully indexed by Google and attained various top 10 listings for my chosen keywords! - Thats right in under 4 weeks!

If you're seriously considering an online shop then I would highly recommend that you give Ashop a try - I wasted days evaluating just about every shopping cart option out there - don't waste your time doing the same. You get 10 days to evaluate the software - you'll know its the right choice within the first few days.

I now have plans for a second online shop and will have no hesitation in using Ashop.
Thanks again and keep up the good work.

Hi there,

My name is Kate Crosby. We have a shopping cart with Ashop called - went ‘live’ mid December 07.

I actually wanted to put pen to paper (or keyboard to printer) to praise your company.
I have been the first to jump on the phone or email when something went wrong (9 out of 10 it was fault at our end) but your staff (especially Brian) have been very quick to respond to all my enquiries and problems! So its only fair that I repay the favour!

The whole experience with Ashop has been A+, from the ease of setting up the shop to the user-friendly lay out and easy and enjoyable shopping experience for our customers.

Many web designers/programmers warned us against going with a ‘ready made, templated e-commerce site’, all offering their list of reasons... Ashop - you have proved them very wrong.
We did many months research into what shopping cart we wanted or whether we should get one designed - we then came across Ashop. Thank goodness we did, we certainly made the best choice!

Its been a truly unique experience to deal with such a professional company that actually delivers what it promises. You certainly have exceeded our expectations - Thank You So Much!

Have a fantastic day

Kate Crosby

Love the easy navigation of Ashop. I didn't know much about building a website, but the templates are so easy to use. It is also nice having the live online tech support to help you out when you have an arrrgggggghhhhh moment

Ashop has done more for my online lead generation in six weeks, than my previous website did in two years!

At the end of the day that is what your online business is all about, generating leads and making sales. Ashop does it, simple.

I have been an Ashop customer for about a year now, starting with a simple online store. I was a little hesitant and cautious as I had not had very much success with online trading, and I wanted more control over the content of my site.

I was very pleased with how easy the shopping cart was to set up and design, and how helpful the Ashop staff were. The support and back up are second to none, with offices in the UK and the USA as well as Australia, even if it is the middle of the night where you are, there is usually someone to help answer a dumb question using the online support. Yes your questions are answered by real people!

Since that time I have opened 3 more Ashop shopping carts: – A retail online store selling karate merchandise to an international marketplace. Ashop has features like “Currency selection” which means my international customers can choose the currency they want to deal in, and the whole shop changes automatically. The shopping cart is simple and secure, and I have never had a customer have any trouble using the checkout system. – A store I have built for one of my clients, so their franchisees can buy merchandise directly from me and bypass head office, saving time, money and hassle for my client and their franchisees. – This is my main business site, which I use in “catalogue mode”, a feature I can activate with a click of my mouse that turns my Ashop store into a catalogue rather than a shopping cart. Ashop designed this store for me in around seven working days, this is the only store I had them design for me, and I was very pleased with the end result.

The four different types of stores I use demonstrate the versatility of the Ashop shopping cart software, I can’t imagine there are many businesses that couldn’t benefit from this type of store, even if you don’t need an online store, you can create an online catalogue or information site that is totally under your control and Google friendly.

Ashop is:

- Cheap
- Easy to use
- Versatile
- Secure
- Search engine friendly
- Browser friendly
- Marketing friendly
- (and most of all) Sales friendly

There is no reason why Ashop can’t improve anyone’s business.

Earlier this year, we decided to expand our retail business to embrace the seemingly limitless opportunities offered by the world wide web.

In doing so, it was imperative that we sourced and enlisted the services of a professional and technologically advanced organization to assist in meeting our needs.

Our criteria was simple! Find the most user-friendly, flexible and secure shopping cart facility that also offers an experienced backend team to assist in the creation and development of the site and, after all that, is also able to provide valuable ongoing marketing guidance to ensure strong traffic.

And I’m pleased to say, we found it all in Ashop Commerce.

After just a few short weeks in the development phase, The Red Carpet was launched in March this year. We are delighted with the growth of the business since that time, due in no small way to the team at Ashop Commerce.

It is with pleasure that we recommend the services and products of Ashop Commerce and look forward to a successful partnership with them for many years to come.

After having an online presence for a number of years we realized our shopping cart system was in dire need of updating. Being fairly net savvy, I spent an enormous amount of time looking at all possibilities before committing to what would be our store front for the next few years. I didn’t want to make a mistake and need to re do the shopping cart/website again so I was prepared to take some time and put in the effort to get things right. I expected to have to deal with a US based company which can be difficult with support services so when I came across ashop I was hoping that they might be able to deliver a comparable product to some of the large US companies.

What I found was a product and service FAR EXCEDING anything I had come across in all my time on the net. The product is so user friendly and simple that it now means I can delegate updates to others whilst I’m away or unavailable. The features this shopping cart has are second to none. Everything you need and more is available and makes this product perfect for all levels of companies.

The service offered by the team at ashop is what impressed me the most though. Building a shopping cart is a major investment in time for your online business and there are so many facets to them. Brian and the team where always there to assist me and always replied to my emails quickly with the right answer. Online help and the ability to jump on the phone were a major advantage as well. Quite often I would email the company a question and they would ring me rather than just reply by email as they wanted to make sure the query was addressed properly.

The biggest compliment I can pay the ashop team is the one that is the most important to my business, my customer’s satisfaction and my online sales. I was staggered in the difference the ashop site made over my old online site. My sales went up dramatically and my customers constantly comment on the usability and look of the site. Again, the guys at ashop helped out there and I would highly recommend their design service as it made a massive difference to the look and feel of my site.

If anyone is considering a new shopping cart I couldn’t recommend ashop any higher. A great product and fantastic company to deal with.

We had looked at many shopping cart systems but we weren’t sure how they worked and how easy they are to use as well as change. We then found Ashop Commerce. Ashop had an admin demo panel that allowed us to see how you add products and many of the other features. This then convinced us to try the 10 day free trial which was pain free, it required very little set up on our part and within minutes we could have already been selling to the public. Using the trial we found it incredibly easy to add products, categories and get the desired look of the site.

The reason it is so easy is because the software has a basic structure that you can easily add to. You don’t need to know anything about html code or web design, Ashop provides a very easy to use solution.
As we have expanded our product range we have changed many categories and titles, which only takes a few seconds, this simple step has also help with our Google rankings as we learn more about how rankings work we are able to alter our website easily, to take advantage and climb the rankings

The best part about Ashop is the support, if we ever need any help or advice we can contact them through their live help feature, allowing us to get instant responses and immediate advice.

When we were looking at other shopping cart solutions we were quoted in the thousands of dollars, and there was really no way to try the systems first. Ashop has a monthly payment structure from just $99 reducing the initially set up costs, and the 10 day free trial was what convinced us to try and then buy.

Another great thing about Ashop is that they are continually working on the system by adding new advanced features (eg sales reports and payment methods) without interrupting your sales.

In the 5 months we have used Ashop our sales have consistently grown 10-20% per month, however as Ashop is so easy to use the work load is basically the same as the first month.

Ashop has provided us with a fantastic solution that is exactly what we wanted, our sales have consistently grown, and as we rise in the rankings they will grow further. We are now in the top 10 for most of our keyword thanks to Ashop’s SEO optimized cart.

Thank You


A quick note to let you know how happy we are with the excellent customer
support provided by Ashop, in particular your technical support team. Our
questions are always answered promptly and in detail. They have gone out
of their way to assist us, even in areas not directly related to the Ashop
system. This level of support is quite impressive and really makes Ashop
stand out from the crowd.

Many thanks,


I firstly would like to say it has been a pleasure in dealing with your company, I realize that at times we have been a demanding client, especially due to the amount of communications which were being had on a daily basis. All of your team have been extremely helpful and friendly even when we have required additional work to be done.

As you are aware we have had a bad experience in the past with other another company in your industry prior to consulting with ashop. It has been a pleasure dealing with your company and will happily recommend you and provide references to any of your future clients if required.


When we first looked to open our own Online Store, we spent a good chunk of money with a developer, getting an XXCOMMERCE cart modified. The front page looked great, but when we came to actually list all of our items, with so many different variations in colours and sizes, it proved to be all too hard!

We soldiered on using Ebay for a long time, but the fees started to mount up to a point where we HAD to get off our bums and open a store.

We then went in search of a better online shopping cart solution via a Google search.

Lo and behold we found ASHOP after a week or two of trialling various software and solution providers.

The ASHOP system is by far the EASIEST and MODIFIABLE system we have found yet.

Over the 10 day free trial period, we had managed to completely build our store, tailor the look and feel, put in our own shipping rates, and even load every item we had in stock in ALL their variations. This was done over only a few hours a night.

We had no hesitation of flicking the switch on and paying our monthly fee to go live.

Within 3 days, we'd had enough orders to pay for the first months costs - all the rest was going to be profit !

The support given by Brian and the team is terrific. A simple call and each question is answered quickly and simply.

Given that we had some technical knowledge to start with, the system was very easy to use. The downloadable manual will help those that are not so savvy, and it can be read from cover to cover within a few hours.

We haven't even started using the Newsletter generator yet, but that alone will be worth the monthly fee in the ability to market directly to our customers on a personal level.

ASHOP - Its a bloody good system !
