If you need to take that extra step and require full control over every design aspect of your shop, ShopFactory Developer is for you. It is also the only ShopFactory version with a license which also allows you to build shops for businesses other than your own.
With its powerful adjustable templates ShopFactory Developer gives you full control over every design aspect. Now you can create virtually any design you can imagine.
More than 200 pre- designed ShopThemes mean you have highly professional shops up and running in no time.
Of course all ShopThemes can be modified beyond recognition with point and click ease. No two shops need to look alike - ever. Even if you have no Internet programming skills at all.
But ShopThemes are also a great starting point for further customization according to your needs, and demonstrate the extreme design flexibility of ShopFactory Developer.
The Developer Tutorial which comes with ShopFactory Developer explains how the templates work, and how you can modify them to achieve the look you need beyond point ad click, or how to create your own ShopTheme; for example to create a new shop which matches the look of an existing website. This website has been created and is being maintained with ShopFactory Developer.
There are many tricks provided, which allow you to achieve big design changes, even if you know nothing about HTML. And if you are familiar with HTML, there are virtually no limits to what you can achieve.
Another big Advantage: Once you have altered or created a ShopTheme for a client, you will never have to touch the design again - ShopFactory will automatically apply your modifShopFactoryions to all your content changes.
ShopFactory allows you to quickly build multi department stores which make navigation for shop customers easy, allowing them to browse through your departments or use the powerful search function to locate a specific product.
Just point and click to add departments, sub departments, products and multimedia links, to customize the look of a shop or to add many of the other features required for a professional retail outlet, such as product weight, unlimited options and choices and more.
Of course you can also add information pages, to create and maintain complete websites with ShopFactory.
Before publishing a shop you can preview and test every single function of your shop on your local computer. You can even send and receive test orders with the default payment system.
A sophistShopFactoryed integrated publishing tool makes it easy to publish your shop on the Internet. It will even remember what has been published already, to keep publishing times to a minimum. Of course shops will run on any server - without any installation requirements. Just publish a shop and it will immidiately be ready to accept orders.
And if you are unsure about how to do something, the integrated active help can demonstrate it to you - just click on a button, lean back and watch how it is done!
