Ever wondered what world-class E-commerce platforms have in common?

A landing page (custom front page) that delights the customer with banners and cover images to start with; that has the most amazing photographic content, offer messages, new launches, highlighted products, flash sales, and all other things that you would want your customer to see the moment they land on to your website.

It is like greeting the customer to your shop while putting relevant information on the glass door followed by standees flanked in the entrance so that by the time the customer reaches the counter or the shelf, their excitement to purchase is already heightened.

The screen size and aspect ratio of your mobile and PC screens are different. To ensure images don't get distorted, you can upload different sizes of the same image to better suit the screen size the catalogue is opening in.

Imagine your customer sees a 50% off on the Front Page. He clicks on the image but nothing happens, instead the next image casseroles through. That is exactly where we missed a customer click-to-action.

Now power your image into a button by adding a link/ URL to either a product/catalogue uploaded on quicksell or an external website.


By Clicking on Add Link, you may link the banner image to a product or catalogue or any external website. So whenever your customer will click on the banner image, the linked item shall open.
