E-Commerce-The way to do
Electronic commerce is a modern business methodology that addresses the
needs of organizations, merchants and consumers to cut cost while improving
the quality of goods and services. The term also applies to the use of
computer networks to search and retrieve information in support of human
and corporate decision-making. There is a range of e-Commerce opportunities
that depend on the nature of the business and the customers it serves.
To begin with electronic commerce, it is vital that prior to entering
into any sort of business activity, a company must be traceable relatively
easily on the Internet.
An appropriate and generic domain name would enable a company to conduct
on-line transactions with ease and likewise enable customers and suppliers
to trace them quickly.
This is where MintValley.Com, prefers to step into to provide the right
domain names suitable to every kind of business and providing up to date,
economical, secure and reliable Web hosting services so that your e-business
is saved from additional costs of maintenance and equipment.
A part of an e-Commerce strategy is characterized by the use of Web Server.
Setting your independent Web server operational may be costly, time consuming
and frequent shut downs may rate it as unreliable by potential customers.
With the types of Internet services and technologies catching up, e- business
forms a major part of trading worldwide. And with more and more banks
and other financial institutions becoming online, the prospects of electronic
trade or web based trading have increased many folds. When we look at
the service provider point of view in e-business, we can classify them
ISP (Internet Service
ASP (Application service
LSP (Logistics Service
Internet service providers
are those people who provide the services for Internet, net connectivity
at various speeds as per the demands of the user and according to their
service providing capability.
Application service providers are the class of Internet citizens who provide
application, i.e. Develop and support applications on the web and provide
all kinds of application development and support as per the clients demand
Logistics service providers are those who mainly do more of consultancy
over the web than doing application development and deployment. ASP's
and LSP's cannot exist on their own i.e. they are interdependent but more
than that the basic factor is that the service provided by the application
and logistics people are mainly depended on the type of service provided
by the ISP's.
At MintValley Technologies (P) Ltd. we have all the technical know-how
and expertise to be a fully-fledged LSP and ASP. We have in house developed
a team; which is capable of application design development and deployment

A virtual shopping cart is an integral part of the site. The
user will have the option to purchase any quantity of the displayed products.
They will be able to insert or remove any of the products from their cart
and keep track of the total amount purchased at any time. The system can
calculate extra charges including shipping, handling, and taxes. The system
can also generate an order number and present it to your customer for
order status follow-up later.
If desired, inventory levels can appear informing a customer
of the availability of each item either in actual quantity or as an "in
stock" flag. Date of availability, including back order dates and
quantities can be displayed if the information is available. If required,
this section can be password-protected for selected accounts.
Any part of the Web site
can be protected by a password to restrict entry. If a section is for
internal use or for special customers, the user will be prompted to insert
a password for entry into that section.
Credit Card Transactions
MintValley has a credit
card interface, which will allow the cards to be either authorized while
the customer is on the site, or the processing can be done by the server
after the customer has left the site. The resulting credit card information
submitted with the order would then have the authorization code and address
verification information you need. If you prefer to do these from your
back office system, the site will simply pass you the credit card information.
When the customer gets to the credit card form on the Web, our registered
secure server takes over to assure a secure passing of their information.
The server can be set up
to send an e-mail order confirmation to a customer. This will assure them
that the order was received and logged on the Web server and will give
them the necessary tracking information if order status and tracking is
available on your site.
Orders and quotes taken
from your customers can be transmitted to you in several ways. The orders
can be immediately e-mailed to the appropriate e-mail address at your
location. The salesperson can also receive a copy of the order at his
e-mail address. The orders can be automatically faxed to you, which is
often preferred when there is credit card information. The orders can
be retrieved on-line over a secure browser through the system administration
module. Finally, MintValley e-commerce can export the orders in a pre-determined
format so you can import them into your system for processing.
Status and Tracking
You can pass information
to the Web site to inform your registered users as to the status of their
order(s). We can display whatever information is provided from the back
office system for your customer to see the status of his order. This information
can be refreshed as many times during the day as required. You simply
send the information to the Web server in the pre-defined format and MintValley
e-commerce automatically picks up the file and updates the status information.
