For example you can edit the  colour scheme,  you can add extra tabs, you can change your header or even add a google maps link. Another key element we would advise adding to your site is social media links, so that your customers are able to have multiple methods of contacting you.

Also, processing credit cards through a payment service provider ensures that your checkout process is PCI Compliant, and your customer’s data is secure. Turning on Ecommerce is so simple and can be done by following just a few simple steps and once you have done so you can make further edits within Ecommerce. For example you can create custom shipping charges and methods, you can add pick-up to these and you can even create coupons.
