Browser-based ShopZone Has Desktop Upgrade

Breakthrough Software announced the availability of ShopZone Web Edition, a browser-based e-commerce solution that includes a desktop upgrade option.

Aimed at ISPs, telcos, and portals that want to host online malls, it is designed for users to import their online stores in the desktop version for greater functionality and advanced customization--then publish them via the same ISP or host.

"Time is money, so we made ShopZone Web Edition as easy as possible for a host to setup and configure, and for a merchant to get started building their professional e-commerce site," said Trevor Stout, Breakthrough Software's co-founder and CEO.

"And because ShopZone Web Edition is the only browser-based e-commerce solution with a desktop upgrade path for advanced development, customers using our product save time in the long run because they won't have to start over from scratch."

ShopZone Web Edition provides a store setup wizard to guide users through the online store creation process. Advanced features include customizable site style sheets, advanced page editing, discussion groups, online forms, site statistics, and product specials. There are full site administration capabilities for the merchant, plus facilities for online payments, taxes, and shipping rates.

The vendor said it can provide ShopZone Web Edition immediately to ISPs and other large hosting services.
