GiftCiti has just moved!

We have moved!

It’s not about our working place, it’s our GiftCiti Server, it has just moved to a new place! This is to improve the flexibility for future update, and also helps the development of future features.

For the moving event, we have prepared a lot, and have also done the rehearsal. However, there are always some unexpected, out of our control things happened during the actual moving process, plus some technical factors, it makes the moving time much longer, we are sorry about it and thanks for your understanding.

Update for SEO improvement

Happy New Year!  GiftCiti has just updated before the New Year holiday!

The update will further improve the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) features, it would help Search Engines (e.g. google, yahoo) to index your Store and Item pages more better, we hope this could better help buyers to find the desire items, also enhance stores business.

Below are the major changes for this update:

  • Store URL – Unchanged
  • Item Link – in order to better represent the item, the link (URL) is changed
  • Item Category / Sub-category – in order to better represent the page, the link (URL) is changed
  • Store custom pages – in order to better represent the page, the link (URL) is changed

Also, thanks to Meowsical Baby Store for the suggestion, we have added the Tel Contact Number field when Shipping Address is required for shipping, it helps Store to communicate with buyer easier for shipping issue.

Wish you all a Very Happy and Prosperous New Year!


Responsive Web Design and many updates

Perhaps the final bigger update for 2015, we finally integrate the Desktop and Mobile web resulting in the entire site now using Responsive Web Design (RWD), it is not only making GiftCiti look better on different devices (desktops, tablets, smartphones), but also to ensure GiftCiti is using the latest technology, that is, more modern. ^_^

Below are the major benefits / different for this update:

Sinlge URL for Shop
eShops do not need to add the “/m” on their URL for mobile web anymore, user may simply use the same and unique URL (e.g. to enter your shop, the web site will automatically show the proper layout to desktop and mobile users.

Shop Layout
Shop layout looks different but feel similar, it would better suit different devices, and easier to setup. Shop user may setup the Themes color more easier with the Preview feature.

And More…

  •   New First page
  •   Search Products page: Add Advanced Search
  •   New Shopping Cart screen
  •   New “My eShop” setup
