Shopbiz.com Launches E-Commerce Platform

Denver-based Shopbiz.com released its Web-enabled e- commerce solution, offering merchants a place to establish an Internet shopping presence without the worry of technical issues or Web positioning.

The company said that with an Internet connection and a Web browser, anyone can go to www.shopbiz.com, fill out the registration form and within 24 hours have their products in a secured Internet shopping environment.

When a merchant sells a product, Shopbiz.com receives a commission from the sale, which is not charged to the seller. This has proven to be a cost- effective way to add e-commerce to small- and medium-size businesses, the company said.

Merchants can add as many products as they choose to the site. The registration process includes the merchant's business address, shipping policies, accepted credit cards, and passwords for future administration, and secure administration of their products and orders. Merchants are also able to upload pictures or other digital images to the site that are then imported into a pre-designed product page.

MediaComm Broadcasting Systems Inc., Shopbiz.com's parent company, will also offer private label e-commerce solutions, providing the core technology behind Shopbiz.com to merchants that are interested in creating their own company-branded e-commerce Web site.

MediaComm Broadcasting is a holding company that develops and/or acquires new Internet-related technologies. On the drawing boards for the company is Broadcastdirect.com, which will provide streaming live and on-demand media events over the Web, including business events, distance learning, entertainment, news and information.
