Avactis has always strived to create easy-to-use e-commerce software. In this giveaway, we’ve teamed up with them to provide 5 participating Six Revisions readers Avactis owned licenses (worth $249 each). Read on to see how you can win one of these awesome prizes!

** Update: Giveaway Period Has Ended **

About Avactis E-commerce Software

The primary goal of Avactis is to provide easy-to-use e-commerce solutions to businesses, big and small. The new release of Avactis focuses on non-programmer users, giving them the ability to deploy sophisticated online shopping experiences with minimal/no coding.

They aim to streamline and lower costs of deploying an e-store. For example, apart from hosting services, out-of-the-box e-commerce software requires designers to create a site template and programmers who can implement it. This cost adds up. By empowering store owners, costs of e-store deployments can be reduced.

Avactis E-commerce Site-Building Features

The built-in visual CSS editor allows the changing of backgrounds and block sizes, font styles, logos, and so forth.

The Avactis visual layout editor allows the showing and hiding of blocks and changing of their locations. These tools can help you design a unique storefront from a standard Avactis template.

visual CSS editor

In addition to visual tools, Avactis e-commerce software also offers a wide range of default features that save significant amounts of money on custom development. Default features include:

  • inventory tracking for product options
  • unlimited additional product images
  • digital downloads
  • customer file uploads
  • customer groups plus group-specific pricing and product visibility
  • Google Analytics integration
  • coupons

And much more. Additional features can also be developed and implemented by the Avactis custom development team.

A Look Ahead

Although the Avactis Template Library now has six default themes, there are far more templates planned to be launched in the near future.

In March, Avactis plans to open a template market for online stores based on Avactis ecommerce software. This market will offer store templates at a moderate price as well as free themes. All of the templates will be available for editing with Avactis visual tools that help users easily create unique designs from a standard template.

The Avactis team is open to negotiations with designers and developers who can provide themes and templates for the Avactis market.

With the Avactis 2.0 release, a variety of special offers for customers is planned, including bonuses for custom development, promotional discounts, and others. More information can be found on the Avactis website when these special offers start.

If I were to win, I would use Avactis to launch my own online t-shirt company. I’ve been planning out the business for a year now, and this would be a great start to get me going. I have actually researched them recently while comparing carts and I really like the features that they offer.

Robin Burks

A lot of my clients want e-commerce options for their sites but don’t want to pay a lot for it. So, unfortunately, this means that they end up getting something that’s free, but not exactly what they’re looking for. Avactis seems to be something that I could offer to them that would make them much happier with their e-commerce solutions.

Dawn Reel

March 2nd, 2011

I would love to use Avactis to upgrade from what I use now, PayPal shopping cart & and hand coding or Amazon store. I’d use it to take my best friend’s Amazon store on a stand-alone site with the more interactive/social media features she needs to grow. The review module, ability for coupons/discount codes, product management & CSS editor are most appealing. I’d be happy to do a “How I used Avactis to Easily Upgrade My Site” tutorial.

Gary

March 2nd, 2011

If I were to win I would use it as leverage to get my girlfriend to finally launch the pet supply website we have been talking about.

She has been wanting to start her own site for her handcrafted pet toys and such.

I think this some free software would be a great way for me to push her into finally taking the next step.

Daniel

I’d use the Avactis platform to rebuild my dad’s old shopping cart. We originally pieced it together using PayPal buttons as a temporary patch to get his site online, but we never had time to go back and fix it before he passed away.

I still have his site online and his books for sale, and this would be an ideal way to continue distributing his work via digital download as well as in print.

Mathan Vibranarayanan

March 2nd, 2011

Will use it to sell all my crafts and paintings.

KostasNi

March 3rd, 2011

Craig Paterson

March 3rd, 2011

If I was lucky enough to win a copy of Avactis, I’d give it to one of my clients and help them set up their new web store. I used an earlier version for another client and it was good back then, so I would imagine it is even better now.

Dwayne

March 3rd, 2011

Wow, the timing could not be better. If I won this, I would use it for a stealth start-up I am about half way through developing, it would be useful for the store component most definitely.

Choose me as a winner, or I’m going to whoop you.

Nigel

March 3rd, 2011

Having used an earlier version of Avactis on a few client sites, I would love to see how it’s grown since then and try it out on our next Ecommerce project.

Levon

March 4th, 2011

This is a quite good piece of software which I would probably use for my handmade goods shop.

Kavya Hari

March 5th, 2011

Avactis has an superb features with the best support.So, almost of the peoples are willing to use this software without any doubt.

Stuart

March 5th, 2011

If I won a copy of avactis, I would learn how the new site integration works properly and write a decent guide on how someone can actually inegrate the shopping cart into their own template design. The new 2.* branch has changed the setup since the 1.* series and there is no real information on the new system for templates and how it works!!! The manual is very un-helpfull in this respect. It’s supposed to be easy to integrate into your own templates!!! Very big downer on what is otherwise a GREAT piece of e-commerce software.

Melita

March 5th, 2011

I would use it for my friend’s online book selling website i’m designing.

Avactis looks like excellent software, very keen to give it a go. I would use Avactis to sell Aboriginal artwork on a charity website I am putting together that will be used to raise money for remote Aboriginal communities in Australia.

Mariam

March 7th, 2011

For a long time I was thinking of creating a website where I can sell my hand-made batik scarfs. So Avactis will be really handy. Thanks.
