Features that will help improve your website design


You’re creating an online shop. Pretty big step.

You want your shop to be eye catching, modern and professional looking – whilst still having all of the functionalities that increase sales and make it fun and simple for your customers to shop with you. You also need the features to be easy enough for you to quickly add yourself.

Sounds like a lot, huh?

Fear not.

Here are 14 ekmPowershop features that will keep your shop looking sharp and give you the flexibility to tailor the look to suit your needs.

Each feature can be added with just a couple of mouse clicks. You will find links to the all new support centre, by each point, that will tell you exactly how to do it.

Here goes:


Editable themes

Once you’ve chosen a theme you can customise it to suit or to create your brand. You can change the colours of your theme and edit areas of it.

The area that will have the biggest impact on your customers is the header image. A stunning header image will capture your customers as soon as they  land on your website.
