If you were trading on the high street it's highly unlikely you would own the building you were trading from. For mist businesses owning the premises just sucks up way too much of their cash. It's no different online, with a hosted solution you own your domain name and your stock - for all intents and purposes the business is yours - you just don't own the 'bricks and mortar' - in this case the code. This is a great way to start the lucrative business of online trading.
Carrdale have teamed up with Birmingham based Superia Commerce to offer a truly cost-effective and yet extremely powerful hosted e-commerce solution.
When we looking for an e-commerce partner we wanted a company that not only ticked all the boxes from a stable and secure platform to a really smooth and powerful back-end admin section, but also someone we could pick up the phone to and get really quick answers. Superia does all this and they're always on the end of the phone when we need them – that's Birmingham time not Eastern Standard Time. Solutions start from as little as £35 + vat per month.
