SchipShop is a platform built by people who love sailing, love boats, actualy everything that has to to with water and sailing.
We also love people, who love all of those things too! So, we've decided to build a platform with lot's of cool stuff just for you, for free.
Well, like we said, it's completely free. This means that it runs entirely on volunteer basis.
We try to keep the costs as low as possible, that's why we are running on open source software mostly.
Opencart for the Blog and Marketplace, and PHPbb for the forum. We've paid for the extra modules, like the
Booking and Reservation system, the Journal theme for the styling and the hosting and domain services we also pay for.
So, where does the money come from then? Whell, at the moment, nowhere!
We are thinking of adding Google Adds to the website, or adding a donation option to the website. At the moment, we still don't have this.
So if you experience any issues, or have any questions, please know that we are doing everything we can to make SchipShop enjoyable.
SchipShop is built from the hearts of people, who love and live for sailing, and want you to come aboard that train (ship) to.
