The Novel Design Store Directory

Description

The Novel Design Store Directory was created by a development team who has been working in the online retail industry since 2008 and required an easy-to-use directory system for an ever changing and demanding industry requiring ‘on the fly’ changes for shop listings on retail websites.

Licensing

The Novel Design Store Directory [NDSD] plugin is now freely available for personal use and no longer needs a license key to function. A ‘PRO’ version of the NDSD plugin will be created in the future with new features and additional options.

Support

Seems to be a nice plug-in. Simple to install and to add store but no documentation about shortcode to insert on pages so not usefull . I can trasnlate it o Portuguese and Spanish if author gives me athorization.
