Photo Gallery Pro ver. 5.0 Inserts Photo Albums on Product Pages

When it comes to competition of online and brick-and-mortar shops, the last ones have an explicit advantage – they can provide customers real products before the purchase.

This strong obstacle still tightly holds customers from mass online purchasing and makes online merchants look for some equivalent tools, which would be able to successfully replace the touch reflex of customers by the other perception. The solution is obvious and still the best for eCommerce – product images. The way you present your products determines the profitability of the entire business and its chances to succeed.

Today we are thrilled to announce you the new version of an excellent partner product presented in our store – Photo Gallery Pro ver. 5.0.
