enables you to take your eCommerce Store live – without worrying about content.

customers to shop products on-line.

Yes. With MOPS complete hosted solution you can migrate all of your current website pages into a new “combined” website with eCommerce functionality. MOPS Advanced and Professional

How can I assure my customers that their transactions are secure?
The best way to alleviate your customers' concerns is to secure your website with a SSL Certificate (Secure Sockets Layer). When a site is secured with SSL—the standard form of encryption currently used on the Web—visitors will see a special symbol in their browser window that indicates the site is secure.
Visitors can also tell that a page is secured by looking at the URL. A secure page's URL begins with the letters "HTTPS" instead of the standard "HTTP". Your customers can be rest assured with MOPS’ security protection. SSL Certificates have to purchased separately and we can install on your website.
