Miva Merchant provides online merchants, developers, web designers and web hosts with the information and technology needed to be successful in today's online selling environment. They propel business for tens of thousands of online merchants and developers on a network of hundreds of hosting partners and business portals. Miva Merchant hosting partners depend on the Miva Merchant platform for its complete, reliable, expandable and easy-to-use ecommerce software and services.
Based on a cross-platform virtual machine, (running identically on Windows, Linux, BSD and UNIX servers) the Miva Merchant product line ranges from Miva Merchant,™ a point-and-click online store development and management system to Miva Script,™ an XML-based server-side scripting language.
This "best of both worlds" approach allows merchants to build their online stores with nothing more than a web browser, and lets developers provide aftermarket enhancements for these online stores. Integrated into the Miva Merchant product line are services that help businesses market and position their online stores, and collect money over the Internet.
