The Wild West days of the net have come to a close as big retailers have moved in and made online commercial transactions as safe as brick-and-mortar purchases. Creating an online store to showcase and sell your products and/or services is not just for behemoths like Amazon and eBay. There are a variety of open source products, such as OSCommerce and VirtueMart, as well as a number of techniques, such as using encrypted emails or using PayPal's custom services, that are perfect for implementing a small to mid-size product catalog or shop. Non-profit organizations can also take advantage of the many low-cost and open-source products available for customization in the area of online donations and event ticket management. Collabowrite has helped NPO's such as Citizens for Animal Protection (online donations) and businesses like Elegant Additions (product catalog) take their website to the next level. Adding e-commerce to your site will help you serve your customers and customers better, while enhancing the bottom line.
