Maintain a product catalog and sell products as an added service on your website using Pl@za Online Store. Buyers select products to a shopping cart and pay online by credit card or PayPal. Online store supports various payment methods, shipping options, discount campaigns and volume discounts. For membership site implementations online store can be expanded to include application fees and renewal payments to access paid services and content.
Pl@za can be integrated with Google Apps service to support concurrent editing of documents by multiple users. In this case, a new feature is added to media library's document management which automatically uploads the document to Google Apps service and enables concurrent editing, commenting and change control there. Saving the resulting final document saves it automatically back in the media library as a new version.
