Futura Shop is a flexible, bespoke online shopping
system offering high performance and sophisticated functionality
in a low-maintenance, user-friendly application.

The Futura Shop has been designed and built by Futura Interactive, a London based new media design agency, as a personalised, superior spec, low-cost alternative to existing off-the-shelf shopping cart packages.

The shop couples advanced functionality and management features, with a fast, fun and user-friendly shopping experience for its customers. Highly flexible, it offers limitless capabilities in terms of the type, range and turnover of products it is capable of selling.

Its particular forte is its highly comprehensive web-based back office administration system which enables the complete management of stock, orders and the shop's structure and appearance simply and effectively, in-house, without the prerequisite of html or publishing skills.

Futura Shop uses WorldPay, a separate and secure payment processing facility, to process all credit and debit card transactions preventing the need for your own secure server facility or a separate internet trading account.

The Futura Shop can be fully integrated both technically and aesthetically, so that it blends seamlessly with the look, feel and structure of your existing website and company image and can be individually customised to support your own specific trading requirements. Alternatively, the software can be used as an entirely separate, stand-alone shop if preferred.
