Interspire Shopping Cart 3.5 Streamlines Buying Process and Increases Conversion Rates for eTailers

Improve Online Sales by Integrating Single Page Checkout, Custom Shipping Zones and Other Store Management Features Such as Support for iPhone Order Processing

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - July 7, 2008) - Interspire, the global leader in e-commerce, content management and email marketing software, today announced availability of Interspire Shopping Cart 3.5. The newest version of the Interspire private label e-commerce software is the perfect option for businesses searching for a simple way to build and manage an online store with the intrinsic ability to increase conversion rates.

While there are many ecommerce software options, the problem is that they are difficult to use and are often hard to customize without help from a web designer. Retailers find that few programs offer key functionality for running an online business. For example, they do not integrate with marketing tools or provide business intelligence so that business owners can improve their offering.

"A variety of industry analysts in the ecommerce space advocate improving personalization, offering secure buying options and providing quick transactions to turn visitors into customers," said Eddie Machaalani, CEO and co-founder of Interspire. "Etailers need intuitive products that can impact conversion rates. Interspire products wrap all the features and options needed into one package so our customers can get up and running quickly and sell more."

Interspire Shopping Cart incorporates store management, marketing and advertising, a Google Adwords generator, design, customization and setup abilities, a content management system and shopper tools. The newest edition of Interspire Shopping Cart has even more features to support online business growth including:

Single Page Checkout -- Encourage increased conversion rates with simple checkout that eliminates clicking through multiple pages and reduces shopping cart abandonment. Interspire Shopping Cart also now integrates Google Checkout.

Shipping Zones -- Allow customers to view shipping cost estimates prior to check out which can be specified depending on country, state, or postal code.

Order Processing -- Interspire Shopping Cart offers the ability to completely process orders on the iPhone by logging into the store's control panel. Users will have the ability to view, filter and search orders by keyword/status and page through hundreds/thousands of orders without having to go back to their desk.

Multiple Currency -- The software automatically detects currency and works with Webservice X to offer multiple currency support.

Intuit QuickBooks Sync -- Sync orders, new products, customer information and inventory into QuickBooks using the free QuickBooks Web connector.

Statistics and Analytics -- In order to ensure sales goals are being achieved, store owners can monitor the store with overview, order, customer and search statistics.

Developer Documentation -- Developers can find all documentation for building add-ons, customizing templates, private labeling as well as using the XML API in the Interspire Developer Network, IDN.interspire.com.
