E-commerce homegrown

WA Business now have access to a home-grown electronic commerce system. Gateway To Perth has now released its own online shopping suite of products which it claims are similar to those used by US

GTP operations manager Naveen Yawanarajah said the system was developed from scratch to allow WA businesses to sell products online.

“We have a credit card facility and the system allows the seller to go in and modify their product details,” Mr Yawanarajah said.

Mr Yawanarajah’s partner Dale Carter said the company’s system was sold on a three tier basis.

Its I-Commerce Light version allows companies to put together an order form with up to 150 items for $1,200 plus a monthly charge of $25.

The I-Commerce Basic version is similar to an electronic shopping trolley. Shoppers peruse a company’s wares in a virtual centre and add products to a ‘shopping trolley’. This version costs $2,750 plus $45 per month.

Both the I-Commerce Light and Basic versions are designed to plug into a company’s existing web page.

The third version, I-Commerce Classic, usually becomes the client’s web page. GTP creates a database driven web page skewed towards e-commerce.

Mr Carter said his company’s system linked to a client’s existing inventory system. “The owner of the website logs into their order processing system and processes the order,” he said. “The customer then gets an email saying the order has been received.”

Mr Yawanarajah said once an order had been processed, the customer’s credit card details were deleted.
