"We have recently created an eShop account to sell our ladies golf and sports accessories online. I was sceptical at first, thinking it would be very difficult and time consuming to set-up an online store but it wasn’t intricate at all. The areas where I did confuse myself slightly, Nico at DiaMatrix’s support was so kind and helpful and our account was up and ready in record time. We can even sell from Facebook now, which is very exciting! Thank you DiaMatrix, we are looking forward to lots of online sales this Christmas." - Chantél Venter, Questia Golf Glamour
