This shop is for demonstration purposes. It is fully functional but you will not get the product and it will not take your money. Although it’s a click away from doing this. You can go all the way to the checkout. You can sell products, services and downloadable items. Build time is 24 hours. You supply the stock .. which can be loaded from a file
