What is it anyway?
Miva Merchant is a dynamic browser based storefront development and management system that allows merchants to create and administrate multiple online stores from anywhere in the world.
Miva Merchant has a complete set of wizards to simplify the process of building your store. The browser based administration interface provides access to an array of more sophisticated tools to maintain your catalog. Upsell merchandising and order fulfillment are included. And Miva’s modular architecture enables you with deep-down customization for your storefront.
Why do I need it?
While you may have a Merchant Account and Payment Processing Software already, without a secure Shopping Cart Software solution for your store, you do not have any way to collect the order information to send to the Processing Software. You have to have a secure way to collect this information and total it and pass it to the Processor. Most Processor Software Companies do NOT allow regular Web Forms to be used in place of a secure Shopping Cart solution, because of obvious security issues.
