Features that we have improved in this update:
- Added Support for Multiple Image Upload: Why is this so important? While selling online, the only way that your potential customers are able to interact with your product is through the information that you have provided in the listing. And as it is said, an image speaks a thousands words. So, the ability to upload multiple image helps to better represent your products and helps to increase conversions.
