Storemill was our in-house e-commerce platform, which went through a number of versions over the years.

It featured comprehensive functionality for the time and a built-in scripting engine.

These days there are a plethora of excellent cloud-based e-commerce platforms and so Storemill was gracefully retired some years ago.
