A website is more than just a promotional tool.
You can turn it into a virtual store with Magento, and sell almost anything online.
This eCommerce platform can transform your plain website or portfolio into an online store. And with the release of the much anticipated Magento 2, be ready to take your store to a whole new level.
For a start, you can add stunning product pages to your site, display product images, descriptions, specifications, and prices. Visitors to your website can then add these products to a virtual shopping cart, and, when they’re ready, head over to the checkout page to make a purchase.
Before all of this. You need to set up your store. And part of this is picking the right theme that integrates well with the Magento 2 framework. There are several themes available- some free & some premium. We understand that it’s hard to find a perfect one. So we did this for you! 😀
