Yesterday, Apple company presented new models of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus with resolutions of 1334×750 and 1920×1080. So the question arises, do we need to update the store to fit the new screens? SOTESHOP 7 works in RWD technology - this means that it not only adapts to existing devices, but will also work correctly on resolutions that will be introduced in the future.
Let's do a small test, let's see how the store looks on iPhone 5, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus.
An article about SOTESHOP 7 has been published on the Wirtualna Polska portal. We invite you to read it. The internet is today a gigantic supermarket. We watch, choose and buy almost all possible goods online. Increasingly, we do this without using classic computers. Thanks to the development of mobility, we can sell and buy everywhere and at any time.
In version 7, we added integration with Inpost Paczkomats.Thanks to the integration with Paczkomaty.pl, the store's customer can choose to have their order delivered to any Inpost Paczkomat as a delivery form. This is a particularly convenient delivery form for those who cannot receive packages at home/work, and prefer to drive to the nearest Paczkomat and pick it up at a convenient time for them.
Responsive Web Design is a technology that allows web pages to be presented on different screens, from phones, through tablets to small and large monitors. In SOTESHOP 7, the system automatically adapts to the browser resolution. It selects the appropriate page layout, presents information appropriately, adapts the menu, header, logo, banners, fonts, scales images, icons, and adapts many other elements. See how SOTESHOP 7 changes depending on the presentation resolution.
We have prepared a new version of SOTESHOP 7.0.1.

There are many different solutions for presenting mobile versions of websites and online stores. Often, special simplified versions of the site are created with a separate address. Sometimes the mobile version is presented on a completely different platform. Regardless of the technology used, these are still mobile versions of the site. Often treated only as a curiosity or fashionable gadget.
The online shopping market is constantly evolving. Laws are changing, customer requirements, delivery methods, or devices on which customers view our website. Therefore, in order to effectively compete and reach a larger number of people, our online store must also evolve.
That's why we created the new version of the SOTESHOP 7 online store, with Mobile, Responsive Web Design, Paczkomaty and many more.
