With SellerDeck Catalog orders are downloaded securely to be processed and invoiced; reports for stock monitoring, back order management, picking lists and shipping can be generated. Shop updates are made easily in SellerDeck Catalog from your PC through a Windows interface and you only need to go online for the short time it takes to send up any changes helping to keep your phone bills to a minimum.

SellerDeck’s fully-integrated design module provides complete flexibility to design your store in the way you want to. Select and amend from a range of pre-designed themes, mix and match elements from the design library and edit colour schemes, fonts and layouts to create your own unique, customised store. Preview your site in real-time as you go.

SellerDeck Catalog offers support for unlimited depth of sections and sub-sections in your shop and provides support for product variants including attributes and components. Pop-up windows can also be also added to products to provide more information.

SellerDeck also integrates with the design suite Dreamweaver, so you can tailor your online store to look and feel exactly how you wish. Ideal for those who don't intend to code in HTML/CSS, but still want to create more personalised sites.
