Reading Time: 2 minutes


Over the past few weeks, some of our Sellerdeck Desktop customers have told us about their experience using our platform. Many have been using it for years and have seen their businesses develop alongside the early ecommerce solution. It was fantastic to have so much positivity regarding our platform and services.

About Sellerdeck Desktop

Sellerdeck was founded in 1996 and was known initially as Actinic until we rebranded in 2010. Our organisation was one of the first to offer affordable ecommerce services to a new, developing market.

Sellerdeck Desktop is a complete ecommerce solution that enables small and medium-sized businesses to sell online. The software installs on your PC or local area network and lets you build your online store quickly and efficiently without using a browser interface. Providing a unique amount of control from modern cloud-based platforms.

Although our services have expanded over the years to include cloud-based platforms such as WooCommerce and Magento, we still love Sellerdeck Desktop. It remains a solid, trusted ecommerce platform, used by over 500 of our clients. A variety of businesses have tested the performance over the years. Clubhouse Golf, one of our largest clients, has seen its organisation develop from a £1 million to a £30 million turnover during their time on the Sellerdeck Desktop platform.

Hugh is one of our most long-standing team members, working for Sellerdeck since 1997, just one year after the company was founded. He is now our Chief Technical Officer and has worked in that role for the last 11 years. We wanted to get his opinions regarding Sellerdeck Desktop and the feedback he’s received from customers over his many years working on the platform.

Final Thoughts

Seeing all of the positive feedback for Sellerdeck Desktop has been heartwarming. We’re proud of our company’s heritage and dedication to offering one of the first affordable ecommerce solutions for small businesses.
