SignatureCart is a state of the art, web-based Shopping Cart that is designed to easily integrate existing websites via a simple html link. SignatureCart is compatible with all web servers - Windows, Linux, Unix, etc - No hosting updates are required. All the shopping pages are displayed with your existing website's header and footer so there is never an abrupt look and feel change as with some other shopping sites. Customers feel comfortable shopping online store because SignatureCart is hosted on secure (SSL) web pages and sensitive customer data is stored in a Microsoft SQL Server database - Payment information is accessed by the Administrator from secure, password-protected pages - Not emailed like with some other shopping cart products.

SignatureCart saves you money! eBay® is fine for one-time sales, but when you regularly sell products online, eBay® fees can cost you a fortune! A SignatureCart rental is a fixed monthly fee, so you pay the same low fee even if you sell hundreds of products per month!

SignatureCart provides an extensive "Back Office" suite of utilities that simply the creation of your products - There is no need for costly web-programming each time a product is added to the store. And SignatureCart collects valuable customer information so the store owner can stay in contact with the customer base to keep them informed about upcoming events, sales, etc.
