Search, Login, Account Categories

Our web site is designed in house from scratch up despite it may look
familiar. No single line of code is borrowed from other shopping cart scripts.

Our design principles include:

1. Simple to operate. We don't believe an e-Commerce web site needs
to have a separate manual for how to use.

2. Powerful enough. Some of features we have implemented are very
useful. Other web sites that are powered by readily made commercial
or free shopping carts program are lacking in these areas. Eg. Be
part of our accounting system; automatic shipping cost/COD fee,
insurance fee calculation based on destination, shipper chosen,
weight, size and more; automatic email generation for each stage of
order; viewing live order progress and order history; viewing
despatching consignment notes; viewing RMA progress with details;
support multiple shipping destinations...

3. Must be scalable. We constantly update and implement new features
to our web site based on need and new ideas. The system is designed
to allow such progress with the least effort.

4. Compatible with most if not all browsers, browser versions. Including
text based browser like 'lynx'.
