The word "e-commerce" has become quite familiar as more and more business establish an Internet presence. It is estimated by the US Bureau of Commerce that by the year 2010, over 40% of all consumer purchases will be conducted electronically.

E-commerce is more than just "shopping carts", but includes the tools and knowledge needed in order to get potential customers to your website, a virtual storefront in the form of a shopping cart, and a merchant processor for credit card transactions.

We have spent much time going through this process so you can begin building an e-commerce solution that is tailored to your business. Our E-commerce solution includes different shopping carts and 3 different credit card processors, just the tools you need to create your e-commerce solution!

Accepting all major credit cards along with electronic checks is just as important as your on-line storefront. Without the ability to offer flexible payment options, you will be loosing out on sales. Having the ability to accept credit cards is not as difficult as it seems, and there are many resources on-line which will process your transactions for you even without requiring you to have a merchant account. We have included what we feel are 3 very reputable credit card processing solutions for our clients.
