eCommerce Website Features
The theme is the face of your website, also known as the store-front.
Support for multiple layout templates. This allows for making different sections of the website have different common elements (such as header and footer, for example).
Support for multiple page templates per page type, accessible via different URLs. For example, there could be multiple views for the collection pages, such as list and grid view.
Allow reuse of common template elements within page templates, reducing design effort and maintenance cost, and improving consistency over the copy and paste approach.
Run multiple store-fronts with a single account and back-end interface by using multiple active themes, one of which is automatically selected based on the request domain name.
Develop and test new themes on a live website without affecting customer experience or live operations.
Liquid Templating Language
Very simple language that has only few basic constructs, yet powerful enough for all ecommerce templating needs.
Standard Client-side Technologies
Theme elements may use any client-side web technology, no limitations whatsoever. This means that any web designer can implement a theme, and off-the-shelf themes can easily be adapted to work on the RetailConnection platform.
Not all websites are equal - no prescribed structure, only requirement is that there has to be a home page.
Login, Logout & Register
Fully customizable Login, Logout & Register pages, with support for collecting custom data on registration.
Checkout steps can be either removed, combined into a single step, or broken down into many steps - the choice will depend on the nature of the website.
Fully customizable My Account section supports any imaginable organization of the optional account-related pages.
The possibilities are unlimited - collections can be accessed by reference name, by tag, or iterated over, supporting virtually any imaginable organization.
Full access to everything needed to design a fully interactive, feature-rich website.
RESTful API Support
If all else fails, our RESTful API allows easy access to most data related to your website.
Request only what you need with AJAX.
