This SaaS (software as a service) application is available on a monthly or annual fee basis. No up-front costs for the service. The monthly subscription fee can be cancelled with no penalty. See the Online Store for the subscription fee options. The only other cost is purchasing a copy of FusionPro's VDP (desktop version) program. This is needed if your company is going to make the variable data templates for the storefront. We can provide the FusionPro program to you at a discount. If only static items/documents or if we are going to produce the variable products, then the FusionPro VDP program is not necessary.
If you want to accept credit cards on your site, then there will be the following costs: 1. The purchase of a Wildcard SSL Certificate to protect your customers using your site. (We recommend purchasing it from GoDaddy.com. Will provide hands-on help with this.) 2. The purchase of PayPal's PayFlow Gateway. (This gateway is needed to serve as the channel for the payment to go to your credit card merchant account.) We strongly suggest that you contact the Pathway Payments (link and info below) when you are considering getting the gateway. This company can make the process easy and could possible save you money on the credit card processing fees.
