Why release the Printcart Product Designer plugin?
Most online print shops provide the ability to upload media files that support design work or product customization. That makes storage management more difficult. They have to face increasing storage costs or insufficient storage capacity, which stops websites from normally operating.
Currently, the cost of centralized storage is more and more expensive. Along with the storage capacity adding is meeting many difficulties, specifically on Shared-hosting and small servers.
In addition, saving entire media files on the same server affects the site loading speed and decreases user experience during shopping, which increases the site leaving rate and loss of purchase orders.
Understanding customer demand, CMSmart releases a new Plugin based on NBdesigner which is integrated with a cloud storage solution called Printcart Product Designer | WooCommerce WordPress. Product Designer allows all media files that users have uploaded to the designer tool to be stored on the cloud storage of Printcart instead of stored on the local drive of the hosting or server.
