MISSISSAUGA, ON. – February 18th, 2000 -- Inline Internet Systems, Inc. today introduces a new Canadian component to their iHTML Merchant e-commerce software. In a new partnership with Canada Post that will tie-in the corporation’s innovative eParcel Shipping Module, Inline hopes to make ventures in e-commerce more attractive to Canadian businesses. The eParcel Shipping Module is designed to give online shoppers complete control over the speed and cost of delivery for the merchandise they have ordered.
Traditionally, the majority of customers taking advantage of the complete store-front package provided by Inline have been American. Now, making additions to both the shipping and payment processing software available, Inline can offer Canadians an opportunity to create web sites that would rival any American one. As a Canadian company, Inline is always looking to better solutions for Canadian customers, and these new features do just that.
"CanadaPost is pleased to have its eParcel software included in the new version of Inline’s Merchant product," said Francine Conn, Director of Business Development at Canada Post. "We developed eParcel because we knew it was a service Canadian businesses needed, and bundling it with a Canadian e-commerce software product like iHTML Merchant is an ideal partnership for our product."
iHTML Merchant includes many features that make it ideal for any small to mid-sized Canadian business looking to start an e-commerce business. When you purchase the product, you can immediately set up a sophisticated online store through a series of simple browser-based administration screens. Merchant is equipped with Canadian currency, tax and exchange rate capabilities, as well as Canadian payment processing through PSiGate, Internet Secure, BCE Emergis [Toronto: IFM.TO] and Touchnet. It’s easy to set up a customized catalogue of your products, complete with pictures and special promotions, and to personalize the look and feel of your storefront.
The iHTML Merchant system is available for Microsoft IIS (Nasdaq:MSFT), O’Reilly WebSite Pro, Netscape, Apache and Zeus web servers, running on Microsoft NT, Windows 95/98, FreeBSD, BSDi, Linux (Nasdaq:LNUX), SCO (Nasdaq:SCOC), HP-UX (Nasdaq: HWP), and Solaris (Nasdaq:SUNW) platforms.
