Think window shopping. Your on-line storefront needs
to be eye catching yet small enough in size to download fast, or
your visitors will be gone in a mouse click. Unlike the traditional
marketplace, competition on the Internet is only a mouse click away
from your site.
A storefront usually displays a
few "teaser" items from your product database with links to the
rest of your inventory. Upon browsing your product line, visitors
have the capability of adding items to a shopping cart and purchase
them on-line using either real-time or deferred payment processing.
Real-time payment processing requires
your having or opening an account with a payment processing network
such as CyberCash, ibill or Authorize.Net. Comtel can and
will assist you in opening or moving your current account with such
an entity. Real-time processing is required for selling downloadable
material or membership access, where order fullfillment usually
occurs immediately upon checking out.
Deferred processing means all payment
information is collected at checkout time, but nothing is processed
right away. Instead, all information is being forwarded to you for
processing using your own setup. This type of processing can work
for selling tangible goods over the Internet, where order fullfillment
does not occur immediately after checking out.
Comtel can implement a storefront
solution for your website under the Commerce Plan for only $39.95
set-up fee plus $49.95 per month. No contract commitment is required,
however, you can benefit from significant savings if you prepay
for at least 6 months (in which case the $39.95 set-up fee is waived).
• Sign up for 6 months, and we'll waive the setup fee
• Sign up for 10 months, and we'll waive the setup fee AND give
you 2 free months.
