A complete e-commerce set of components includes an Internet merchant account, credit card acceptance, real time processing and transaction, shopping cart, secure server and digital certificate. This complete solution could cost up to several hundreds of thousand Ringgit per year. The present cost of entry is still extremely exorbitant in most of this region. Many small to medium enterprises would not be able to afford even a partial e-commerce solution. In the US, there are many new turnkey e-solutions for e-commerce catering specifically for the small to medium enterprises with a low cost of entry. However, most of them requires the applicant to have a presence in the US (i.e., company registered in the US, possess a US Internet merchant account and/or a bank account with a US financial institution).
NON U.S.-BASED BUSINESSES
The following are our recommended e-commerce solution providers especially for businesses without a US presence or non-US based entities:
CCNow is a well acknowledged company that offers a turnkey e-commerce solution to basically any company or individual to enter into the e-trade industry. FREE sign-up and you can set up your cyber shop that accepts credit card payment in no time. No Internet merchant account needed since CCNow acts as the middleman in transaction. Low entry risk and most appropriate for the small businesses and home businesses. The only drawback is that any sales transaction will not take effect immediately (i.e., proceeds from your sales will not register instantaneously in your bank account since you do not have an Internet merchant account). CCNow will sent you a cheque at least twice a month unless you prefer to pay CCNow a sum for a telegraphic transfer. Click on the banner above for full details or click on the text link below:
