  • 🔗 What is Vendo?

    Vendo is a shopping search engine with a bult-in web-based "shopping cart" application for selling online.

    Sellers can set up an online store with its own customisable design and website address. Products added or updated on a store are updated instantly on the Vendo shopping search engine.

    Sellers who already have an online store may also list on Vendo: products are indexed using a bot or "spider" that scans each website and imports products, usually between 1am and 3am, and at a frequency of monthly (default) or weekly or daily (on paid plans).

    For the web designer:

    Vendo gives the professional web designer complete control over the layout using internationally recognised web-standards compliant HTML and CSS, with the ability to extend built-in functionality by adding your own Javascript and PHP.

    For the retailer or small business owner:

    Vendo's simple to operate interface means you are in total control of what's displayed on your website, giving you the power to update your website when you need to.

    Vendo is Google-friendly built-in. You don't have to learn any code or create separate meta tags; Vendo generates the perfectly formatted code for you, on-the-fly.

    Anyone can use Vendo with minimal training. That means your website is updated more often, and easier for your customers to buy from.
