True SEO-friendly

Configurable routes and URLs system allows search engines to build correct site structure in their index.

Every page, product or category has it's own fields for SEO - URL slug, TITLE tag, H1, META description, breadcrumbs label and name that is used as anchor.

Smart content editing

  • Use content blocks(like chunks in MODx) for repeated content parts.
  • Create and integrate feedback forms with automatic validation, spam-checking and management from backend.

Configurable multipurpose E-Commerce

  • Graph order workflow - you can configure the whole process and options as your business needs.
  • Multi-currency support with pluggable automatic currency rate updating.
  • Discounts for all! Users, products, orders, delivery, etc.
  • Pluggable Payment types - 12 build-in payment handlers and it's easy to integrate any other.
  • Filtration of products can be configured for every category.
  • Support of configurable advanced fields for user, customer or company.
  • Integration with 1C through CommerceML alpha stage

And more to come...
