Open Cart supports all the features that you'd see on sites such as Amazon and Dell. It supports an unlimited number of products and categories that can be arranged in an unlimited tree-like hierarchy. Products can be in the form of actual goods, downloadable files, media and software or services such as courses and subscriptions.
Open Cart is very easy to modify and tailor to individual requirements. We can fit it into any template design and add any functionality to it that you can find on any other ecommerce site. We can make your online shop look however you want it to.
It doesn't have to be Open Cart. We can make any other available ecommerce software package fit, pixel perfectly, into any template design.
