E-Commerce Solutions:

We offer several e-commerce solutions so that you can accept and process orders using your web site on our server. However, if you prefer, you are welcome to acquire and install shopping cart software of your choosing that is compatible with our UNIX servers. Also, many companies offer remotely hosted programs, where your web site is hosted on our server, but the e-commerce is hosted elsewhere.

FREE:

"That'sAnOrder LE" cart
Each account is provided with the "That'sAnOrder LE" cart from Command-O Software. It can be installed at your site using the web control panel. Log in, choose free scripts and then install "thatsanorder." After installation, browse to yourdomain.com/lto.htm to proceed with store setup.

Using "That's An Order LE," you will be able to add 25 products, state tax rates, shipping methods and rates, and product options including sizes, colors, a description and image using the web-based step-by-step setup process. However, it does not allow for realtime credit card processing. You would need to process your charges separately.
