SunCommerce Offers Free Online Stores to Small Business

SunCommerce Corp. is promoting the launch of their SecureMerchant 2.0 service by offering a free online store (for 30-days) to every small business in North America.

According to SunCommerce, SecureMerchant 2.0 is designed to allow anyone with an Internet connection and a browser to create a store in five easy clicks, and begin selling immediately. Designed for the business person, the company said Secure Merchant 2.0 is very intuitive and allows users to manage their store directly from their desktop. There is no software to install and learn.

"Out of our experience in building and operating a number of e-commerce systems for large clients such as MegaDepot.com, Ryerson Bookstore, and Canada 3000, we recognized a need for a complete and affordable e-commerce solution, specifically designed for small and medium size businesses," said Rob Ayer, Vice President of SunCommerce.

According to a recent Ernst & Young study, e-commerce is booming. Over 32% of people surveyed have bought something online, and over 64% forecast that they will purchase something online by the year 2000.

In a testimonial, Dr. J Antony Gagnon, proprietor of The Wellness Shoppe commented: "No fuss, no need to be a programming guru. Secure Merchant 2.0 is the answer to putting any store online, quickly and easily."

SunCommerce Corp., specializing in electronic commerce software and full service order management systems, has offices in Vancouver, Toronto, and Seattle.
