WebStore - make money with us!

01/06/2012
WebStore is opened for your graphic themes. Anyone who creates unique, beautiful and attractive graphics can now start making money by selling them in our WebStore. Here are couple rules to help you develop a good theme to WebStore:
  1. Theme MUST be nice and clean.
  2. Changes should involve ONLY appearance / presentation. Don't change any specific functionality such as categories, search engine etc.
  3. New design should apply to:
    • main page
    • products list
    • coloring
  4. Do not change: product card, shopping cart and checkout process as well as other pages such as customers login page.
  5. Every graphic theme sent for approval has to be presented as demo in Interent.
    Data in a demo can't be random. The idea is to present a graphic theme as if you wanted to show it to a client, so a graphics must have exemplary products, nice banners and everything should be matched.

Professional graphic theme for only $ 86.59

Professional graphic theme for only $ 86.59

18/10/2011
To open an online shop is not enough to purchase a software but it's also needed to prepare a professional grafic theme. This is an extremally important element, because a good-looking theme makes your customers prefer to buy products in your shop and better evaluate your offer. These are largely subconscious processes and have a big impact on customers and theirs decisions. Let's imagine the situation that we enter a "real" store, which is ugly. Would we gladly do our shoppings there? It's is very similar in the digital world.

Liven up your website with the new banners

Liven up your website with the new banners

09/09/2011
SOTESHOP offers a carefully considered and well-constructed product presentation system as standard. Even so, clients ordering the introduction of individual graphic designs expected something more - an element on the page to draw in potential clients, to focus their attention on a selected group of products whilst at the same time being a sign of a technologically advanced shop website. Ready-made graphic designs often have a banner presenting a group of products on the very first page, independent of those which come as standard for the software (product groups). Individual designs are more expensive and for shops just starting out such costs can be prohibitive. And this is where this special product banner application fits in. It's an easy way to liven up the website and present a group of selected products in an eye-catching way.
