Not only products that were sold on the site, but also spares and accessories, which needed to be found by related product or spares name or part number and obsolete products, so that visitors to the website could search through the back catalogue of instruction booklets held by the brand. tradeit provided the flexibility to handle these various types effectively through the website via multiple templates. Faceted navigation dramatically improved the customer experience on-site, especially when navigating the spares catalogue.
