We're just doing our first e-commerce site for a client who sells TVR & Lotus accessories. We did a detailed evaluation of most of the known Shopping Cart software and settled on Actinic Catalog which scored top on four criteria:- flexibility, quality, ease of integration and customisation . We are 90% through building the site, which includes some fairly complex product mixes, variations etc, and the software is living up to expectations. On the credit card processing front, the client already had a Merchant Account, in order to trade online they had to fill out a simple request form, Barclays asked us to answer a few security questions, validated Actinic, and it was done. We then looked at the various Online Card processing options -Worldpay came out tops on that evaluation, integrating Worldpay with Actinic has been a doddle. All in all, our first e-commerce experience has been relatively painless and has almost been enjoyable....so we're all worried sick wondering when the bomb will drop! John S.
