This will help your customers find the products they want easier and faster. You may use product sliders, banners, image zoom and even videos to display your products. You can also add product description, reviews, product options and FAQ to make it easy for your customers to decide to buy.
Fast, Easy and Secure Payment Processing
With a well designed online store, your customers will not be afraid to send payment for your products. Once they place their orders, they will automatically see the available payment options. Paypal and credit card payment methods automatically send payment verification emails. If they choose to pay via bank transfer, GCash, remittance or checque, they only need to send proof of payment to proceed with purchase.
