Moonfruit ShopBuilder: Turn your Moonfruit Site into an Ecommerce Success!

by Fabrizio Van Marciano on October 7, 2011

Online site building giants Moonfruit recently announced the release of the BETA version of their eagerly anticipated ShopBuilder tool. As an avid user and fan of Moonfruit for more than 6 years this comes as great news. For a long while now many business clients of Moonfruit have been waiting for an ecommerce platform to be integrated into Moonfruit’s site building technology.

What is Moonfruit?

Just briefly, Moonfruit is an online site building tool like no other, using simple drag-and-drop editing, anyone can create a professional looking flash website for their business within days and not months or years. More ever Moonfruit currently has over 4 million users worldwide and growing.

Moonfruit’s immense growing popularity is due to the wide range of mind boggling tools and features that you get to create a website for such a low all inclusive price plan. There is no concern over web hosting fees, buying and pointing a domain, storage and now integrating an online store, it’s all part of the Moonfruit package. Check here to find out more…


Their new ShopBuilder tool is designed to seamlessly integrate into Moonfruit’s existing site building technology, whether you’re browsing on the web, your device or a social platform such as Facebook, once you hit the publish button for each product you create in ShopBuilder it will be available everywhere.

Moonfruit has always had a long partnership with PayPal, and this has been reinforced even further, with the integrating of the new ShopBuilder tools with the most respected online payment processing service provider on the web, more ever, your website’s online store payment system is optimised for web and mobile.

What does this mean for small businesses starting up?

This means starting a business in ecommerce or setting your own online store with your own products, all inclusive of Moonfruit’s site building tool is an ever greater possibility than ever before.

I’ve personally been waiting for Moonfruit to roll this long awaited feature for a while now, as my online art website is built and powered on Moonfruit. Below you’ll find some screenshots of my online art website with the ShopBuilder BETA integrated.
