Actinic Catalog puts you in control of your online business.
It installs on your PC and enables you to publish an online catalogue, provide a shopping cart and take orders.
The orders placed can be downloaded into Actinic Catalog for invoicing and processing.
Unlike its more expensive competitors, Catalog does not demand a database at the web site nor a Secure (SSL) Server, a leased line, or transaction charges - all you need is a dial-up account with an ISP and an Othello Technology Systems hosted web site with CGI capability.
How does it work?
Actinic Catalog is an easy-to-use Windows application that does not require you to have any HTML knowledge in order to get a set of catalog pages online.
You simply enter the details about your product range, or alternatively you can import a spreadsheet of products straight in.
Customising your contact, payment and shipping details is simply a case of filling in the appropriate field and ticking the appropriate box.
There are also a whole range of design options which are accessible to everyone.
And for more experienced designers, Actinic Catalog allows you to have easy access to all the HTML templates that are used to lay out the online catalog pages.
What else do I need?
Catalog in a "shop-in-a-box" solution - everything you need to prepare your catalogue is included.
The database is held on your local PC and can hold from 10 up to 10,000 products without any problems.
The online catalog is then generated as a set of static HTML pages, ideal for submission to search engines, which are created on the local PC and then uploaded automatically to the website.
Actinic Catalog also uploads a set of Perl scripts to run the shopping cart functionality.
All the code for integrating with SECPAY is allready built into the Perl so you do not have to do any customisation before you can start taking payments.
