Miva Merchant - Features
Highlights of the Miva Merchant solution include:
- Virtual or Dedicated Domain usage:
Running on top of the Miva Engine (which we provide on all servers), our
ecommerce solution works equally well with either virtual or dedicated servers.
- Database Management:
The Miva Merchant can handle thousands of categories and products. The xBase
compatible data files can be opened and managed in dozens of different database management
tools, and the system's architecture allows for fast product search and instant
organization, even with a very large number of products.
- Modular Architecture
The Miva Merchant is based on a modular design, and new modules can be
integrated into the main system with the push of a button. Developers can implement their
own customized API. Modules can be developed for fulfillment, user interface, shipping,
payment, currency, sales tax and batch reporting.
- Existing Site Integration
Existing sites can easily be expanded to include the Miva Merchant merely
by hyperlinking to the system. All of the online store functionality - product lookup,
category browsing, shopping basket, order forms - can be accessed as components of
existing HTML-based sites.
The Miva Merchant provides for SLL encryption of all sensitive data can be
encrypted with SSL prior to transmission. This includes order information during customer
ordering and order processing. The central administrator can grant store-level development
permissions to different developers and merchants as needed.

New users can work in "novice" mode, with detailed prompting about each
field, and overall tutorial information about each screen; expert users can toggle the
prompt mode off for silent editing and back on for "hints".
