    If you are reading this, you're probably half-sold on the idea of extending your business online. Online sales in the year 2000 will total at least $8 billion-and that's a conservative estimate As more people worldwide gain access to Internet, ecommerce and online shopping will become second nature to consumers and businesses alike. Can you afford not to open an online store?

    With our E-commerce Plans, you can launching your online store and take your business into the information age-all for less than the cost of cable TV service! 
      
  2. What is the difference between E-Commerce  and Custom?
    What is the difference between E-Commerce  and Custom? 
    E-Commerce comes with SSL Order secure order form, which supports LinkPoint, Signio, and CyberCash transaction processing. It suits stores with 20 or fewer products. If you are looking for an economical and easy way to get started, ECommerce  may be the right choice for you. If you need the extra sophistication of Custom Commerce, you can upgrade quickly and easily without an extra charge.

    Custom Commerce includes our shopping cart-not just a secure order form. Golemweb Merchant's robust architecture gives your customers sophisticated shopping features and allows you to take advantage of the latest ecommerce tools available, such as customer registration for repeat customers, online reporting tool for your order.
      
  3. What software do I need to get started?
    Nothing, except for the browser you are using to view this page. If you know how to point and click, you're ready to start.
      
  4. Do I need to know HTML to build my store?
    No, you don't. The bundled shopping carts are also store building tools. You don't need to know any HTML or programming.
      
  5. How long will it take for my store go online?
    Once you place your order online with a credit card, you can start building your store within 24 to 72 hours. This is the time needed to activate your domain name (if it is new) and to spread information around the world about the physical location of your site on the Internet. If you have a new domain name, this process takes 24 to 48 hours; if you are transferring your domain from another hosting provider, it takes 48 to 72 hours. Once you start building the site, it doesn't take long. Sites with just a few products can be set up in less than an hour. For most stores, however, it takes from a few hours to several days. One day is about average for our customers.
  6. Do I need to sign with Hostway for some minimum term?
    No. You are on a monthly billing schedule and can change or cancel at any time.  
      
  7. Will my store be registered with search engines?
    Yes. Once your account with us is activated, we will send you a pointer to the search engine submission page, where you can register your domain name with the major search engines.
      
  8. What do I need to sign-up for your service?
    You need an Internet connection and a valid email address, so that we can send you the account information. If you are paying by credit card, you should have your Visa, MasterCard, or Amex ready. You can also choose to pay by check. If you don't already have a domain name, you need to decide on one. We will check its availability and take care of registration as part of the signup procedure.
      
  9. Will transactions be secure?
    All transactions on your online store will be encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. Any shopper using a browser supporting the SSL protocol can shop with confidence, knowing that their credit card information is being sent safely and securely over the Internet. Almost all browsers nowadays support SSL.  
      
  10. Can I view a real store? 
     Under construction!!
