Trustpilot 5 stars EKM has proved to be a great

As a startup with no previous experience in eCommerce EKM has been the right choice of platform for me. They have a team of experts on line to help with technical problems. What I like most is the online Facebook group where businesses can help and support one another. They also have numerous support guides, video guides and a blog full of useful tips and the latest industry news.
