June 1, 2011, Orem, Utah -- ShopSite, Inc., a leading provider of e-commerce shopping cart and catalog software for small to medium-sized businesses, announced the release of ShopSite version 11. ShopSite® is an industry leading e-commerce software option for web hosting providers, for new or existing Internet merchants, and for Web designers.

"ShopSite v11 has also passed the PCI Security Standards Council testing for PA-DSS (Payment Application Data Security Standard)," said ShopSite CEO David Hills.
