Stumpworld Systems Inc., which markets its Online Merchant software that enables small businesses to set-up shop online, signed a partnership deal with E-Commerce Exchange.

The partnership integrates Online Merchant with QuickCommerce, E-Commerce Exchange's transaction processing gateway and will create the Online Merchant QuickCommerce Edition. Financial arrangements were not disclosed.

Through this partnership, customers now have the ability to accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Diners Club, ATM and electronic checks.

"The Online Merchant QuickCommerce Edition is setting the industry standard by enabling small and medium sized merchants to seamlessly build an online storefront that accepts real-time payment within five minutes of the buildout."
