SmartStore.biz allows every small and medium enterprise to construct an ecommerce store simply and effectively, with step-by-step guidance all the way.
No HTML or other programming knowledge is required, and you can have your basic online shop set up in a matter of hours.
You simply enter the relevant data into predefined entry fields, request SmartStore to compile it into a store, and then publish it to the internet.
Your site can be previewed at any stage of its construction, either in SmartStore's internal browser, or in an external browser.
If you feel creative, templates and layout can be altered to suit your specific needs, although most will find the included designs adequate for their needs.
Transaction services are included, allowing you to incorporate full online sales into the final store. This ensures you have a store that benefits fully from the immediacy of the internet.
There doesn't appear to be any facility to accommodate product images into the store, which could be a disadvantage depending on which products you are selling. There are options for including company logos and things, though, so the store will clearly carry your corporate image.
Note: This free version allows a maximum of 20 products in a store. Various upgrades are available that allow 100, 500 or unlimited products.
