Electronic commerce, commonly known as (electronic marketing) e-commerce or eCommerce, consists of the buying and selling of products or services over the Internet. E commerce typically consists of a merchant account which can be used independently or in cooperation with an E store (or electronic store.)
Accept Credit, Debit or Gift Card Payments
A merchant account allows a business to accept a customer’s credit, debit, or gift card as a method of payment in lieu of cash or check. Not only is this more convenient for both the customer and business owner but also adds credibility to the company. A merchant account comes with a digital or physical interface. The physical interface will allow you to swipe a customers card or manually type their information into a credit card terminal (perfect for a stationary business eg. restaurant.) The digital interface is completely online and can be accessed from your secure account anywhere the internet is accessible (great for a traveling business eg. traveling sales.) A merchant account can be used independently from or in combination with an E store.
Allow World Wide Access to Your Products and Services
With an E store or online shopping cart prices and items can be set and configured by the administrator from anywhere with online acess. The store front can then be viewed by any customer with internet access worldwide allowing them to review, compare, and purchase products remotely. Your E Store can be combined with your merchant account to process transactions without having to transfer payment data saving you time and a hassle. Developing an online store can be a profitable business in itself, or add a revenue source to your existing business.
Merchant account and E-commerce shopping cart plans are available in several tiers. Prices are determined based on the amount of products, data, and transactions required to assure you get a plan within your needs and budget.
