Our Competitors are Obsolete and BrokenIm sorry. Its not the 1990s anymore. Why dont they fix it?Some of our competitors are so bad that you have to hire a developer in order to get anything started. On top of that you end up paying $50/month. Some ofour competitors dont state that you have to go get your own merchant account which can cost you another $30/month.
The Fix - Keep It Simple StupidWe made it easy that even a 6 year-old can build a store and sell things. Our interface is straightforward, sexy, and clean. We try to not put too many buttons in front of you. Even our metrics look pretty. Through our platform, it is easy to update content and manage. Our ecommerce is the easiest to use.

Our Secret SauceIts not a secret really. We have a great product. People like it. They pay us.But if you insist, our technology is second to none. We utilize Node.js, built servers that auto-replicate todemand, cache, and tweak some database shardings meaning our stuff scales! Our sales and support team are really, really good at what they do.
