Modern online stores cannot be imagined without supplementary product information. In addition to catalog, shopping cart and checkout features, store owners are willing to publish attractive content or even engage visitors in communication.
There was a time when the only way to work with the content for ecommerce sites was to write custom add-ons or integrate web stores with existing content management systems (where most of advanced features were not even necessary). However, now everything is different. Being a modern ecommerce solution, CS-Cart also offers CMS functionality which is easy to use and, at the same time, flexible enough for online store content publishing.
All information is stored within the pages shown in the corresponding section of the storefront. Pages are arranged in a hierarchy, so you can define a parent for each item and logically organize your content.
CS-Cart provides store owners with four pre-defined page types: text pages, forms, polls and links.
Using text pages, you can post various text and graphic information such as company details, policies, articles etc., while links provide the ability to point to some external websites or documents.
As for forms and polls, they obviously provide a way to interact with your customers, gather their opinions and encourage them to contact and leave feedback. Each of these item types is entirely configurable, meaning you can control everything: from form fields set to possible poll answers. All types of options are described in detail in the CS-Cart manual.
Each content item is also fully customizable in terms of SEO, and you can define all key parameters in order to attract customers from search engines.
As you can see, CS-Cart is ecommerce software which is capable not only of product management, it also comes with all must-have CMS features allowing you to share information with your clients without unnecessary extra efforts!
