Everything from your more popular social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter down to social shopping sites like Pinterest and Wanelo can now be easily accessed on every page. This will help us gain exposure on all of the social outlets and increase brand awareness. So if you use any of those sites please feel free to express your love for our products on them!
We have added two new payment gateways for more checkout options for customers. The Paypal method will allow customers to go to Paypal and use their user ID to complete the transaction. Bitcoin allows users to be able to pay with Bitcoins, and if they use any trade markets, various other cryptocurrencies . These additions will add both functionality now and for the future. Ecommerce is shifting heavily towards cryptocurriences, so being able to be a forwarning for merchants just makes sense.
