Are you just about ready to build your ShopSite store, but you still have questions about accepting credit cards online? ShopSite, Authorize.Net, and Total Merchant Services (TMS), have teamed up to provide merchants with a safe and secure way to accept real-time payments for their E-business.
For an online business to be successful, a store must be able to accommodate its customers and process their payments. Through the ShopSite, Authorize.net and Total Merchant Services packages, merchants can accept all major credit cards, government purchasing cards and checks. These packages provide automated payment acceptance and also allow merchants the ability to manually transact phone, mail and fax orders.

The three major components are each priced separately.
ShopSite is sold through authorized resellers called ShopSite Partners. ShopSite Partners typically package ShopSite with other Web services, such as domain hosting and server space. Because each Partner's offerings are different, each Partner has their own pricing structure. ShopSite may be offered as a one-time purchase or as a monthly contract. Contact a ShopSite Partner for more information -- you can usually buy ShopSite as part of a hosting package.
