CartLoom is a new solution designed for merchants and web designers who need to incorporate the sale of physical or digital goods into their websites. CartLoom supports management of products, inventory, tax, shipping and digital distribution via a simple web interface. Offered as a service, CartLoom eliminates the need for designers or sellers to worry about the installation, maintenance and security issues generally associated with managing a traditional shopping cart script on their own site.
CartLoom integrates with new or existing websites via the insertion of simple html snippets and supports popular online payment providers such as AuthorizeNet, PayPoint and PayPal. Sellers may also elect to skip online payment methods and accept mail-in payment from their customers.
RapidWeaver users will find that the CartLoom plugin simplifies the creation of ecommerce enabled pages. The plugin supports quick product entry, simplified design tools and compatibility with most current RapidWeaver themes.
Pricing and Availability:
CartLoom is completely free during the public beta period which will last until December 31, 2009. The final product will be available in January 2010 at a flat monthly rate of $9.95. The RapidWeaver plugin will remain free for all CartLoom subscribers.
