Ch-Ching! Gets A New Update
Imacination Software has released the latest version of Ch-Ching!, bringing the online storefront builder to version 2.6. The update includes new pricing features, improved shipping fee handling, and integration with the cross-platform Adobe Golive 4.0. According to Imacination:

Imacination Software Releases Ch-Ching! 2.6 for Windows and MAC OS with automated credit card processing, UPSonline shipping, easy store setup, and tight integration with Adobe GoLive 4.0 allows merchants to create a complete fully-functional Internet store in as little as 15 minutes with no programming required.

Building upon the ease-of-use and rapid deployment capabilities of previous versions, Ch-Ching! 2.6, adds a tremendous amount of new features. Merchants can now charge sales tax to an unlimited number of states, and can completely customize their shipping and handling fees including the ability to integrate with UPSonline for UPS shipping pricing. Additionally, merchants can link products together to facilitate vertical sales.

Ch-Ching! 2.6 also provides interoperability with Adobe's new website editor GoLive 4.0. Ch-Ching! HTML templates have been designed for easy editing within GoLive giving merchants the ability to easily edit the "look and feel" of their store to match their website.

Additional Features

Built-in credit card processing allows merchants to process credit card orders online without additional software, hardware, or phone lines. Complete Web browser-based remote administration allows store owners using Mac OS, Windows, or Unix to fully configure their store to create products, edit orders, and configure preferences. Customers can return to your Ch-Ching! store after interrupted shopping expeditions without losing the contents of their shopping cart. Built-in quick searches include the ability to browse products via a pop-up list, and find specially marked products. Customers can login and retrieve their billing and shipping information from previous purchases, apply the information to their current purchase or edit their information. Stores can be configured to operate outside of a secure sockets layer (SSL) with payment transactions handled within an SSL server. Ch-Ching!'s database generates product information "on-the-fly" preventing tampering with HTML files.

Ch-Ching! ships with credit card transaction templates for AuthorizeNet, and ATSBank. Use of either of these transaction bureaus may require fees payable to the transaction bureau. Users can also process credit cards or other forms of payment offline. A fully-functional 30-day demonstration of Ch-Ching! is available for download from http://www.imacination.com/.

Requirements for Macintosh: Mac OS Web server (not required if using Lasso Server Edition) equipped with either Lasso 2.5 or Lasso 3.5 Filemaker Edition plug-in.

Ch-Ching! retails for US$495, while Ch-Ching! 2.6 is a free upgrade for all Ch-Ching! owners.
