• Customers can submit reviews for stores and products, as well as share (embed/link) videos that are associated with the product
• Customers can make direct enquiries to all stores for custom orders, called ‘quotes’ and all registered merchants (stores) can respond with their quotes if they wish
• Advertisements are shown to customers based on the products they view, and search queries they make
• Merchants (stores) have separate account where they can request/purchase different services and reports (the reports/services will be executed by third party application and emailed back to merchant)
