3 online stores SHANTI & Co. use ShopCentrik e-shop system
For more than a month SHANTI has been using our ShopCentrik system for its online business with three specialized e-shops :
- Orientshop.cz is a treasury of interesting subjects and remarkable gifts from the Orient
- Vodnidymky.cz offers famous brand hookahs, scented tobacco, charcoal and other related products
- Smokeshop.cz sells a wide variety of different smokers´ products
Experience in e-commerce shows that shoppers perceive specialized e-shops more positively than generalized e-shops. Moreover, SHANTI sells such a varied and wide range of products that it made sense to divide the products to three separate, specialized online stores.
Benefits of interconnection between website and e-shops
The interconnection of the Shanti.cz website, which uses the MediaCentrik content management system and three online stores linked to the Helios Orange economic system, is very interesting. This kind of model responds to the clients´ needs. All clients can access the information, advice and tips which would not normally be available in the e-shop, as well as opportunity to shop conveniently in a sophisticated online store.
SHANTI website and its graphics: Tastefully reflects the oriental style
The entire SHANTI project impresses with its attractive and original graphics. The graphics reflect the oriental character of the products sold in SHANTI e-shops. The appearance of the SHANTI website and eshops are inspired by Eastern aesthetics and customers can immediately see what type of products can be found here and, at the same time, the modern concept reflects all the up-to-date trends in e-commerce. The creator of this graphic design is Petr Ovcacik.
SHANTI oriental product online stores are B2B and B2C
The targeting of online stores customers is also noteworthy. SHANTI offers a wholesale B2B e-shops for registered customers, who can also purchase in two physical stores in Prague and Brno. These e-businesses have also made their range of products available to end customers (B2C) through their e-shops.
SHANTI already delivers worldwide and is preparing to create individual language versions of its online stores.
SHANTI: Payment method
SHANTI Orientshop.cz, Vodnidymky.cz and Smokeshop.cz online stores support various payment methods: payment by card or cash, bank transfer and payment gateways such as eKonto and Moneybookers.
Another interesting SHANTI e-shop module is the "Dutch auction". The price of products included in the Dutch auction decrease at regular intervals until the product is sold. A customer can therefore buy a product at a fraction of its original price, if another buyer is not faster.
