MyCommerce is a revolutionary content management and online shopping platform, tailored precisely to your business. It enables you to manage your all your site content yourself (such as information pages, products, blog posts, images, galleries, videos etc etc) - as well as take advantage of powerful, integrated e-commerce.
Most e-commerce solutions out there today such do just that - e-commerce. They sell products online. And they do a great job. But that's *all* they do. Our experience has taught us that online stores these days need to do much more than just take orders and display lots of products.
Customers are growing accustomed to content-rich, engaging sites, built around products and merchandise. Blogs, forums, image galleries, videos, knowledgebases, product reviews, news articles, social networking etc are becoming essential to attracting and keeping customers on your site. E-commerce applications don't run all this. It's not what they are designed to do.
But ours is.
Our system is a powerful and versatile content management system. Layer in a powerful suite of e-commerce modules on top, and you end up with a system that runs all aspects and components of your entire online operations, all under one roof, via a single back-end interface.
A content management system, or CMS, is software that makes it very simple for non-technical users to update and manage a website. The MyCommerce platform is a powerful CMS which means it is very easy for site owners to manage all of their site and store content themselves.
Not at all. Our solution has been designed so someone with little or no knowledge of computers or the internet can have a content-rich, engaging online store and website that they can easily update themselves. There's no programming languages to learn, no books or manuals to read, no developers to contact whenever you want to make changes or add content or products. With a MyCommerce site - you have total control over your online presence.
Hosted solutions own and host their software themselves, and you pay them a monthly fee (and other charges) to use it. You cannot make any changes or tweaks to the software - you have to fit in around what you are given. As with anything you rent – you own and control nothing, and are very limited in terms of your freedom and options as these are dictated by the owner. You must make sure you pay every month or your service will be deactivated, and you lose everything.
A purchased solution is where you actually purchase the solution outright and you are therefore the owner. This gives you far greater freedom and total control. You can host it wherever you wish, make any changes you like and tailor the whole thing up around your business needs and requirements. Unlike hosted solutions, our platform is open source, so the source code is freely and readily available and can be modified to do anything you need.
You don’t – we set everything up for you! Select what Packages (if any) you’d like, and then we go ahead and install the software and customize it with the options you selected. Once we’re done, we hand over the keys to you and you have total control over your site and store. All you need to run and manage your entire site is a web browser and an internet connection! To get started, simply fill out the Request A Demo form, or call us at 1-800-606-4506 for a free consultation.

An SSL Certificate is created for exclusive use with your domain name and encrypts credit card and other sensitive data as it travels between your customer's browser and the web server. If you have areas on your site where users submit sensitive information (passwords, credit card details etc) then you must have an SSL Certificate installed.
We supply industry-standard 256-bit strength GeoTrust SSL Certificates for $79 (renewable annually for $55) so we can purchase and install this for you when we set up your site. It's no problem if you already have an SSL certificate, or would like to purchase your own - our transfer and installation fee for 3rd party certificates $80.

When it comes to customer service, we believe in the personal touch. The developer that installs and sets up your site will be assigned to it permanently after it launches. This means you will always have a single point of contact that is absolutely familiar with every aspect of your site.
