are several options available for installing e-commerce on
your web site. The
cost of selling products and services on your web site requires
additional monthly expenses.
MoonLight Enterprises offers shopping cart
programs and shopping cart services.
Shopping Cart Programs
We offer shopping carts, which requires the
purchase of shopping cart software (and the setup costs) on
your website. You will need to apply for an Online Merchant
Account with your bank, purchase a digital certificate and
also have SSL Security installed on your web server. Both
SSL (Secure Socket Layer) and Online Merchant Accounts require
additional monthly fees. A digital certificate is purchased
and renewed yearly, starting at $125.
For example, if your business already processes
credit transactions off-line (at your physical place of business),
then you already have an established Merchant Account. You
will need to apply for an Internet Merchant Account to perform
online transactions. This involves setting up a secure merchant
gateway account to process your online credit card transactions.
This account usually carries a separate monthly fee, a transaction
percentage (approximately 2% sales commission goes to the
Merchant) and sometimes (approximately $.50) per-transaction
fees are applied, as well.
We also offer economical shopping cart services,
which are shopping carts that integrate with your website,
but all secure transactions are actually handled by a Shopping
Cart Service Provider. They require no merchant account &
established line of credit, no per-transaction fees and no
webserver security (SSL). There is no software purchase required
and the website sales setup labor is half the cost of purchasing
a shopping cart program and using your own merchant account.
The shopping cart service providers offer
a wide variety of program options & costs. For example,
one may charge a flat yearly fee of $250 for unlimited use.
Another service provider may charge a $10 monthly fee, plus
a 9% commission on all sales.
MoonLight Enterprises can help you find the
best shopping card service to accomodate your budget and your
for additional information and project quotes.
