LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Whether it's rosaries, devotional icons, or wedding bands for the summer, Catholics like to shop. Unfortunately, a common challenge for Catholics is finding where to shop.
While most communities have Catholic stores, shoppers tend to find limited selection and are locked into paying a single price, or worse, having to choose to visit a secular store for their gifts. Thankfully, the internet is making shopping as easy as a Google search.
Catholic Online has managed to make shopping easier for Catholics by aggregating in one place, hundreds to thousands of products sold by a virtual shopping mall's variety of vendors. Monastic orders sell their handcrafted wares alongside renowned jewelers, and mom-and-pop cottage industries.
The end result is a wide selection of Catholic products for serious shoppers.
Catholic Online has also unveiled unlimited listings for advertising clients, to help improve both selection and sales for advertising clients.
