Here's a host of great features which make setting up a shopping cart simple and managing orders a breeze.
You can have as many Buy Now buttons on your website as you like so you can sell as many (or as few) products as you wish. Your products can have as many product options as you need, options can be on any form type: drop down list, radio buttons or even a text box. The only limitation is your imagination!
The free cart supports payments via PayPal, Braintree, Nochex, Skrill and Paymate. We do not process cards ourselves.
Upgrade to Premium and you can hook up the cart directly to your merchant account via one of the payment gateways we support.
One of the best ways to increase sales is to recruit other websites to send you customers. mTracker is a free affiliate program built into the cart which provides the basic functionality required to log click-through from those websites and calculate their commission.
Several of our members of our community have written scripts or provide services that extend the built-in features of the shopping cart. Some of them are free and others cost a little money.
Gift certificates and discount vouchers are great way to improve customer loyalty. Rewarding loyal customers and encouraging repeat business by issuing discount vouchers has been shown to be one of the most effective ways to increase sales.
Charities are an important part of the Mal's e-commerce community, they can setup a Donate button where someone can enter the amount they want to donate.
Here is a glance of the most important features of the cart service. It's not a complete list of course, ten years of continual development has led to a very comprehensive system but these are the features most people ask about.

You can pay Premium fees by credit card or PayPal. We offer a 10% discount for those who wish to pay on an annual basis, $86.40. There is a 25% discount for members who have four or more Premium accounts and pay for them via the same billing account! This means you pay just $6 per month and you can still have a 10% discount on top for annual payment
