When DigiStock owner Eric Kabik happened across NetStores by
chance two years ago, he was not really satisfied with his order
processing system. DigiStock, a stock photo agency that provides
high-quality photographs to ad agencies and graphic designers,
was able to display images online, but customers still had to
do their purchasing the old-fashioned way — by phone. Now,
DigiStock’s Royalty-FREE Line of stock images is sold through
The highlight of the NetStores e-commerce solution is its flexibility,
and the software is easily modified to manage downloadable products
as well as shipped items. NetStores even co-locates some of the
images, which take up a great deal of disk space, for DigiStock. “Through
NetStores, clients can search and locate the images, select from
three sizes, and purchase and download the image.
It was a huge advancement for us,” says Kabik. Kabik
is also the website designer. “I design the site and work
with NetStores tools to modify it,” he says. He uses the
NetStores dynamic template technology with direct HTML coding
to customize the product presentation.
“The Netstores solution is fast and easy to learn,” he
adds, “and we had the site up and running in a very short
time frame. It’s a brilliant tool.” DigiStock also
takes advantage of NetStores optional merchant account and credit
card gateway for instant credit card verification—essential
for downloadable products. “I was attracted by the price
for the available functionality,” Kabik says.
Kabik says his experience with NetStores has been very positive. “The
staff at Netstores has been incredibly helpful, courteous and
easy to work with,” he concludes. “NetStores is fast
and easy to learn— we had the site up and running fast.”
