What we do

Southern Direction uses OpenCart which is an online store management system. It is PHP-based, using a MySQL database and HTML components. Support is provided for different languages and currencies. It is freely available under the GNU General Public License. As of May 2016, 342,000 websites were using OpenCart.

Online Shopping is the new norm, but in the world, we are living in everyone wants a piece of the pie - called monthly fees. Southern Direction configures Opencart for our customers with templates that they can choose from and then change minor details as per their needs. This method makes it faster to develop, easier to manage and affordable to get started. You do not pay monthly for the system as we set it up and train your staff on how to manage your online shop.
