A few months back, we touched on an exciting CS-Cart development project we started with our client The Memento Group. If you missed it, here’s a quick play by play.
eCommerce SEO for Formula One Memorabilia
The Memento Group is a vertically integrated services business that delivers turnkey solutions for rights owners, teams, players, and artists, all wanting to develop deeper relationships with their fans.
One of the sports The Memento Group supports is Formula One; ExtraDigital were recruited to build www.F1Authenics.com – a CS Cart eCommerce shop where F1 fans can find unique F1 memorabilia from their favourite teams and drivers!
On-Time, On-Budget, Flawless Delivery! A massive week for the Memento Group with the launch of our new website www.f1authentics.com. Developed, built and supported by ExtraDigital, who also manage the social media activities on our behalf. Delivered on time and on budget. Brilliant job, Flawless delivery

Experienced Marketing Agency
Launching a new website can be difficult if the developing team and marketing team don’t work together. At ExtraDigital our developers have the marketing knowledge to build sites with SEO, and the user’s experience at the top of their mind; that is how we achieved the above results and were able to see the site rank highly in search right off the bat… or should we say green light?
With eCommerce websites, there is always a high level of care needed as you are handling customers’ personal data. With F1Authentics, extra levels of security were required as some of the memorabilia sold on the site can be upwards of 50k.
On top of that, an up-to-date site is crucial for security. Like most eCommerce platforms CS-Cart regularly release security updates, alongside other feature-based updates. Therefore, any sites that don’t routinely maintain can quickly become out of date.
Being the builders of the site and having CS-Cart experience, it was only natural that ExtraDigital provides support ongoing for this project. We will have more on this later!
