With more than 50 design templates, even a design layman can easily and quickly create an attractive online shop. There are design templates with numerous business and leisure themes and multiple icon sets for different tastes (e.g. for light or dark backgrounds).
Editing your website content is easy in WYSIWYG mode ("What you see is what you get") or in HTML
It couldn't be more convenient: Website elements such as product categories, shopping basket, login box or search field can be inserted and placed in the individual areas of the page via drag-and-drop while in a preview mode of the website. Editing texts is also possible in a preview mode.
Our setup wizard will help you with your first steps to create your website and online shop:
Select a shop/website template
Select categories and pages
Enter contact information and presentation (e.g. number of languages, company logo)
Settings (e.g. tax ID number, activation of the shop statistics)
After the basic settings have been completed, your shop can already be looked at in the browser. You can then edit the template further.
For more organisation and overview in your online shop: The website contents can be distributed in categories, subcategories and pages. Products and customer information can thus be sorted by topic and relevancy.
The page areas can be individually adapted in their height, width and look. This allows you to upload a graphic for each area or set a background color, for example. The positioning of the website elements within the page areas is completely flexible via drag-and-drop.
A preview and detailed view is available for each of your products. The preview view appears in the product list. You get a small product image (thumbnail) as well as a short description. The products can be sorted by name and price in the product list.
The detail view, in turn, shows more detailed information, product variations (where applicable), cross-selling products and campaigns like "Product recommendation".
To create the most vivid impression of products, images can be created in different versions. An image, however, only needs to be uploaded once in order to be used for the preview, the detailed view and a zoomed view in a lightbox. Image files can be uploaded via drag-and-drop. Images can also be displayed as a slideshow or in an image gallery.
With the function for Flash, gadgets and RSS feeds, it is possible to load external content into your online shop. There is already a pre-selection of content available such as YouTube, Google Maps or different news and weather services. Your own Flash elements are normally integrated in HTML mode.
To enhance your site with external content, you can additionally create individual RSS feeds.
