WebSiteSource goes live with free Miva Merchant in all accounts

- Offers well built selection of quality hosting plans, all with built-in e-commerce.

(03 December 2002, San Diego, CA) Web hosting and e-commerce provider, WebSiteSource, today announced that all standard hosting plans now include the powerful Miva Merchant e-commerce software bundled in with no change to existing pricing for the plans. Even their most affordable $19.95 per month "Basic" account now includes the market-leading storefront development software, along with the same list of base features previously made available in each plan including 200MB capacity, 6GIG in traffic, unlimited email accounts and other features too numerous to list.

Before boldly moving to value add Miva Merchant into all of their hosting accounts, WebSiteSource had been offering the software exclusively with their upper-end hosting plans. Part of the decision to make Miva Merchant available to all of their customers came from the overwhelmingly positive response that they've received from online merchants and developers who've become experienced with the use of the software through its availability in their WebSiteSource accounts. The diversity in background and sophistication represented by Miva Merchant users at WebSiteSource lead to the theory that the software should be made more widely accessible.

"Our clients range from beginners, who utilize the browser-based controls and set up wizards to simplify the store setup process, to more advanced users who use the non-compiled source kit to customize Miva Merchant at the source code level," said S. Rosendahl, WebSiteSource CEO. "It's easy for first-time online merchants, yet powerful enough for experienced programmers. Along with Miva Merchant, we also include SSL with all hosting accounts. And, for clients that need a merchant account, we have teamed with PayQuake to provide merchants with a no setup fee, no monthly fee merchant account that includes a payment gateway account with"

Said Kevin Kane, Miva Corporation VP Sales & Support, "We have a history of successful launches with WebSiteSource and they continue to be a market leader with well executed market launches and impressive back-end customer service. It is exciting to be working with them on another campaign."
