The toolbar is implemented into each and every of our customers' e-shop and is a free way to advertise your shop and products. The links on the toolbar are also updated regularly.

Every customer can manage his or her e-shops toolbar through simple administration, in which the user can exclude links to an unwanted competition and can also see where his or her -shop is displayed. System supports direct advertising (clicks) and dramatically increases the number of links, which is significant for SEO.
