Download Shops come with Strato’s complete package including web domain, email accounts, unlimited data traffic and Strato’s extensive security features.
Damian Schmidt, CEO of Strato commented, “As sales of digital products are steadily increasing, Strato Download Shops is designed to help merchants take advantage of this boom. We wanted to make the product easy to use and cost effective, as e-commerce is highly competitive. Download Shops is ideal for photography, music, audio or eBooks, software, or any product that can be sold in a digital form.”
