What is a Storefront?

A Storefront is like your own personalised store that you can add all your listings to and brand it with your own company information. A Storefront gives you advantage of profiling your company as well the opportunity to highlight your listings. When site visitors open your Storefront they will experience a personalized look with your listings, logo, unique category browsing and personal extra pages.You can even send news letters to your subscribers.

If you have a storefront your current active listings will be populated into your storefront. Our software will automatically detect your active listings and insert them into your Storefront by giving you the option into which category you would like to add your listing. You also have the option to set up your own personal Storefront category structure and have your active listings displayed within the appropriate categories.
