A unique feature with the ShopSite Shopping Cart software is that you can host your ShopSite online store anywhere. Many merchants host their online store with one of our reseller partners who will install ShopSite on their hosting account. Merchants hosting on their own servers or who are already hosting with a non-ShopSite partner can purchase ShopSite directly from us and have ShopSite installed where their domain is hosted.
Do you need us to recommend which ShopSite product is right for you (e.g. Starter, Manager, or Pro?) Do you want us to suggest the nearest partner to your location? Or do you have your own web site and wish to purchase directly from us? Call us at 888-373-4347 or contact us.
Can ShopSite integrate into my existing website?
Absolutely! Many merchants use ShopSite to build their store catalogue pages but you also have the option to copy and paste 'add to cart' buttons (or even entire product information sections) onto your existing pages using the ShopSite OrderAnywhere feature. ShopSite even has a WordPress plugin for merchants with WordPress blogs who want to add products into their blog posts.
Is there an installation fee?
Merchants hosting with ShopSite Reseller Partners will have their online store installed by their hosting provider. ShopSite Reseller Hosting Partners do not typically charge an installation fee. If you are hosting on your own server or with a non-ShopSite Partner and would like us to do the installation, we do charge an installation fee.
Are there any transaction fees?
No, ShopSite does not charge any per-transation fees. ShopSite has built-in integrations with many payment processing companies such as PayPal, Authorize.net and other payment processors who process payment transactions for orderes in your store. These third party companies often have per-transaction fees.
Can I switch from another shopping cart software?
Yes. ShopSite Manager and ShopSite Pro have database upload and download functions to allow you to quickly import your product or page database from one software into the ShopSite Shopping Cart software.
Do you include the SSL certificates for security?
SSL certificates are typically provided by and installed by hosting providers. Most ShopSite Reseller Hosting Providers offer a shared SSL as part of the hosting plan including ShopSite. You can also purchase your own unique SSL certificate and use that with your ShopSite store. If you have more questions about the SSL provided with ShopSite, you will want to contact the hosting provider you are looking at hosting ShopSite through.
Can I upgrade down the road?
Yes. In fact, many merchants who start out using ShopSite Starter or ShopSite Manager find that once their store has increased in popularity, they want to upgrade to ShopSite Pro to have additional product features such as coupons, gift certificates and cross selling. You do not lose any store information when you upgrade your ShopSite online store, you simply unlock more features in your existing ShopSite store.
