    Spree Commerce

    I don't want to knock other products but let's say that the more famous shopping carts, although they have great functionality off the peg, are limited in terms of branding ability and further customisation. Invariably you get a site which looks and feels like many others. This will suit many companies as a low cost option which is very competent. However the fully customisable front end that we need, and will continue to develop, is not possible with these turn-key solutions.
