What is the history and popularity of the app?

Shop2site is a product of LaDauze, an innovative internet concept and solution company in France. This is the only information available about the application. No traffic data is available.

The application is cookie-free and does not save client data to reduce the possibility of hackers stealing client information. The 'One Page Setup' makes this a very fast and easy solution to what can sometimes be a very difficult issue.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The home page contains a lot of information, but it is presented clearly and is not confusing. There are examples of the app on Wix Flash, Wix HTML5, WordPress, Jimdo, Weebly, Yola, and Webs. Clicking on the examples, a user can see how the app appears and works with each type of editor/CMS.

Once signed in, the user is taken to a first session Account page to create a test product to see how the app works. A product name of "demoproduct" is provided, though can be changed, and an arbitrary price is already assigned. The next step is show the product in a demo shop if desired. At this point it is merely text indicating where the site name, product description, and checkout and buy buttons would be located. Step 3 is the integration step. This provides the code to be inserted into the website, depending on the type of editor used (normal with Javascript accepted, strict - only links accepted, common which accepts iFrames, or WordPress. The user chooses the type of editor, copies the provided code, and pastes it into the website. If the user is unfamiliar with where to place the code, demos and step by step directions are available.

Under the Products tab, the user adds product information. Product name, description, price, weight, and vat may be added. A code is created for each product.

The settings tab is where users indicate company information such as name, data, site, conditions, URL, and currency symbol. This is also where the design is chosen with body background color, text color, font, font size, button image, button font size, text color, and location of checkout button. Product options include whether to indicate live stock, default in stock, and whether to allow backorders. It also offers space for 3 description options. SEO is based on the user's shop description and keywords. Users may check language settings in this section as well. Information to be included on the billing form is chosen via checkbox, tax information is entered, shipment options indicated with cost, payment options chosen, countries that the shop can ship to indicated, delivery cost per zone and weight class entered, definition of weight classes entered, and backoffice information entry for invoicing.

An easy support link is provided to ask questions or provide feedback to Shop2Site.

The system is step-by-step and relatively easy to use. Product images are added separately in the text editor, and it would be nice if it could be done entirely via the shop code.

How does the registration process work?

Shop2Site requires no registration, no credit card, and no obligation. To open a free account, a user need only provide an email address and the the shopping language and the preferred currency.
