eCommerce Solutions, Shopping Carts
That Fit Your Website Needs
eCommerce applications are a part of everyday shopping.
Two approaches can be taken for a site to implement an eCommerce Solution:
Custom designed from scratch shopping cart.
Custom designed pre-designed "out of the box" shopping cart.
Setting up a shopping cart
for your site is easier then ever. For small to medium
sized businesses, the out of the box carts are easy to manage and can be edited to integrate seamlessly
into an existing web site. There are many out of the box carts available, most with very affordable use licenses.
In addition to the shopping cart itself, there are two other pieces of the puzzle. First is the purchase (actually the licensing) of a SSL, secure socket layer certificate. This is a certificate that allows for encrypted transfer of data. The second is a credit card processing gateway application. This is a third party application that approves and transfer funds to a designated bank. There are a number gateway
payment gateways including Authorize.net and PayPal.
Most out of the box shopping carts offer a wide range of features such as:
Powerful System (100%
