Full List of Features

Our approach is somewhat different to most Web Development companies. Our ethos is very much about providing established retailers with a cost effective way of achieving online sales by utilising the following:

  • A new cost model - We provide retailers with a custom designed site with full ecommerce functionality and hosting at a cost price. We then charge a monthly licence fee or commission fee for the use of our continuously evolving ecommerce engine.
  • Continuous Support - As a result of our cost model we have a vested interest in our client's long term success and as a result we offer full support in helping them to achieve lasting success.
  • Web Based System - Our ecommerce system is entirely web based meaning that our clients are not required to download any software in order to run their site. So long as they have internet access they will be able to add/edit and view all parts of their backend control panel. Additionally any improvements or modifications to our ecommerce system will become instantly available to use.

Put quite simply, the StoreSeen ecommerce system provides you with all you need to sell online, in a hosted centralised solution allowing you to manage your online store and website securely from your web browser.
