Creative Cart Requirements
Creative Cart makes selling on the Internet easy. But Creative
Cart is just one piece of the secure e-commerce puzzle. There are some other
items you will need in order to sell your products on the Internet. Most small
companies already have everything they need to sell products online except for
the shopping cart. But to be sure, here is a list of the other things you will
need in addition to Creative Cart:
- A website - You will need a website where
customers can come to see, learn about, and purchase your products.
- A web author - To have a website and to
place the Creative Cart buy buttons on your web pages, you will need to be able
to maintain your website, or have another person or company to maintain the
website for you.
- An Internet connection - You will need an
Internet connection so you can set up your shopping cart and so you can
securely retrieve your orders through a web browser.
- An e-mail address - In e-commerce, your
e-mail address is your link to your customers. Also, you can be notified of new
orders by e-mail if you would like.
- A credit card merchant account - Creative
Connections (who provides the Creative Cart Internet Shopping Cart Service) is
not a bank or merchant service provider (MSP). Without a merchant account, you
will have no way to accept credit cards directly. Although you can use PayPal
to accept payments and use COD, you will find your options much less limited
once you have your own real merchant account. If you do not have a merchant
account, we can help you obtain one.
