$9.95/month - merchant account service charge.
25¢/transaction - merchant account transaction fee.
2.39% - merchant account VISA/Mastercard discount rate.

Graphics Work

If you bring us existing "internet-ready" graphics files to use with your website (such as buttons, clip art, photos etc.) we will incorporate these into your website at no extra charge. If your files are not "internet ready" and we must take the time to create graphics files or manipulate existing graphics files to make them "internet ready," then we charge $85 per hour.

Shopping Cart

If we configure your products using the existing features of our shopping cart software for customers to purchase on the internet, there is no extra charge beyond the standard charges shown in the Website Design Plans table above. If you require customized programming to alter or add to the existing functionality of our shopping cart software, we charge $95 per hour for customization programming. We will produce an estimate for you based on your needs.

All basic features may be customized to your specifications:
