If you have an interest in selling products online but the prospect of setting up an e-commerce system has proven thus far to be too daunting, you may be interested in a new off-the-shelf product from 4D Inc. The company has announced the release of
4D Business Kit, an e-commerce development tool that has been created to enable companies to rapidly deploy an online storefront solution.
4D Business Kit is a US$499 software product that includes tools to build online catalogs, shopping carts, payment systems, tax calculation, shipping, customer management and order tracking. The package includes two stores, with five store expansion packs also available.
The software includes payment support modules that work with Authorize.net, Verisign or PayPal. Tools are also provided to help build custom payment systems. A quick setup wizard is included to help businesses develop a storefront solution.
4D Business Kit is a complete standalone solution, but if you’re already developing using 4D or you have other 4D databases you want to integrate into your storefront, it can be integrated using 4D’s IP component.
The $499 package includes a license for two stores. Five-store expansion packs are available for $499 each. A year of upgrades is also included.
