However, e-commerce also covers any other financial transaction online, including registrations, reservations, gaming, membership sign-ups, or renewals.

- Self-Managed Catalog
Have complete control over all products on your website. Place popular products in several categories making them easier for users to find. You can even control the order of the categories and products within each category..
- Product Attributes
Add an unlimited number of attributes to any product for customer selection. Examples of some product attributes are color, size, length, speed, etc.
- Search Engine-Friendly URL's
Create your own naming convention for URL's. This allows you to use static URL's that will always remain the same for a specific product and can also include the product name. The result is a URL which is easy for search engines to index and will improve your rankings leading to increased traffic and sales.
- Related Products
When a customer is looking at a specific product, your e-commerce solution can suggest other related products which might be of interest to the customer.
- Order Tracking
View the status of any order and exactly what a customer has in their cart. This allows you to assist them with payment or other issues they may be experiencing.
- Phone Orders
Keep all orders in a single system by using a separate interface on your website to enter phone orders. These orders can be marked as 'phone orders' allowing you to use the site to run reports on web orders and/or phone orders.
- Multiple Admin Accounts
Create multiple admin accounts and assign a variety of access levels for each user based on their roles.
- Product Searching
For those sites with hundreds or even thousands of products, a powerful search engine will allow your customers to easily locate specific products. Searches can be done using almost any attribute including product name, brand, keyword, price etc.
- Customer Accounts
Allow your customers to securely create and manage their own accounts. They can update their information for easier and quicker ordering. This is also useful for customers to review their order history when reordering products.
Run a multitude of reports on sales such as total sales, sales by date, sales by item or brand. Do you have specific reporting needs? If so, let us create a report specific to your data needs. These can be displayed on the screen, exported to CSV or XML to be read by other applications such as Excel or any other internal systems.
- Adjustable Tax Tables
Assign separate tax rates based on location. This can be done by state or even narrowed down to city or zip code. When tax rates are changed, you have the ability to access the data and easily make adjustments.
- UPS Integration
Get real time rates from UPS. If your e-commerce system is used for fulfillment, integration can be completed with UPS to print labels and send the data to UPS. All that is left for you is to affix a label to the package and wait for UPS pick-up.
Integrate e-commerce payment capabilities into a wide array of online applications.
- Registration Systems
Once a registration is made with your online registration system, utilize e-commerce for payment to complete the transaction.
To complete the reservation use e-commerce to accept a credit card which only places a hold on the funds, takes a small deposit, or processes the full cost of the reservation.
Allow potential new members to sign-up and pay for their membership online as well as letting current members renew online.
- Subscription Services
Reduce the challenges with subscription services by putting the control in your customers hands. Once logged into their account, give them the ability to manage their own payments or just allow them to update their credit card information and the e-commerce application can do recurring charges by automatically charging the account on a set day every month.
- Bill Payment Services
Integrate bill paying with your website. When you send an invoice to your customers, include an invoice number and your website. They can log on and pay the invoice online which has been proven to increase the payment percentage as well as the speed of payment.
