Often customers will look deeper into the seller, their shop and their other items before making a decision whether to shop from them.

We thought we’d take you through some tips for making your shop look fantastic.

Store Banner

When creating a store photo banner for your shop, we suggest using a banner that is 1024 x 256 pixels.

This should fit the height and length of the banner area completely covering the generic “Welcome to my nuMONDAY Shop” banner.

Shop Description

Having a long shop description can look messy and lose a customers interest very quickly.
