Functionality of E-Trade Shop

general information

You should immediately know that the free E-Trade Shop online store engine is based on OpenCart, and OpenCart, in turn, is a CMS focused on the rapid creation of online stores, while OpenCart is also a free CMS. A large community has formed around OpenCart (over 91,000 members), thanks to which there are more than 17,500 free and commercial add-ons that allow you to change and supplement the store's functions in a variety of ways, all of these add-ons are also available for the E-Trade Shop. The only difference between OpenCart and E-Trade Shop is that the E-Trade Shop in the base package is heavily stuffed with functionality that is not in the base version of OpenCart, and we are constantly expanding this functionality.


E-Trade Shop appeared for the first time at the beginning of 2015 as a boxed product based on CMS OpenCart. E-Trade Shop was the first purpose-built e-commerce package that allowed you to quickly create an online store that knows how to sell, and not just another cold CMS, while the owner received this product for free, open source and with active support. E-Trade Shop allowed the owner of an online store to focus on more important points of e-commerce, removing the routine tasks of opening and maintaining an online store.

E-Trade Shop 1. 0. 0 was released on February 4, 2015.
