Design and Themes
Every theme available has been created by Smoolis artists to look stylish on every kind of device. The ‘Design Editor’ allows you to change fonts and colors to match your style and brand identity. A selection of Google’s fonts can be used for free, without the need to embed any additional coding.
Apps and addons
The provider is partnered with a small number of apps, but external apps can be added in addition to this. Most notably, the Mailchimp app can create an email database that automatically sends mail to increase repeat custom or offer sales, for example.
One way in which it really excels is in its multi-language ability. You can use inbuilt tools to translate everything on your webpage, all the way until the cart and payment process. For customers trying to create a global brand with widely accessible eCommerce, this is a good option to have at your disposal.
Social integration and sales channels
Customers have the option to share products on popular websites like Twitter, Pinterest, and Facebook. This can lead to an increase in website traffic.
All channels lead back to your site, where payment can be made via Stripe or PayPal, which certainly eases the transaction process for many.
This service automatically provides the best SEO it knows how, through URLs, canonical tags, automatically generated page titles, and more.
One fallback is the lack of custom field options available, as customers can’t leave comments easily.
- Google Analytics - Use this to gain statistics on visitors, such as how they located the online store, where most site traffic originates from, the success of each product.
Discount vouchers can be sent to current and prospective clients to boost sales.
Importing and exporting products
This can be done in minutes. Whether to create a backup or transfer to a 3rd party location, it’s no problem.
