London, UK (PRWEB UK) 12 May 2013
ekmPowershop, the business which has provided the know-how and technology behind one in five of British retailers' online shops, is now offering the latest, substantially improved version of the Realex electronic payments platform.
This means clients of all sizes can now take advantage of a host of ways of giving customers a much more personalised experience throughout the process of buying products or services online.
Realex is the UK's fastest growing online payments gateway, and it is used to process more than £16bn in transactions every year on behalf of more than 11,500 clients, including Vodafone and Virgin Atlantic.
And in order to celebrate the launch of its best and most comprehensive payments platform yet, it is offering ekmPowershop customers an exclusive, free three-month trial. This means a saving of £57, and all online traders signing up for a limited period will also have an allowance of 350 free transactions.
"Anyone running a small or medium-sized business who has been considering getting their own fully functioning e-store up and running really shouldn't miss this opportunity to get started on using a payment platform which is trusted by some of the biggest and most successful companies around," stated Steven Hickey, Head of Business Development at ekmPowershop.com.
The free trial includes the use of a host of essential and useful features which help make running and administering the best e-commerce website easy for someone with even minimal experience of buying or selling online.
These include the facility to accept payments in a range of currencies and using all major debit and credit cards, as well as access to a range of state-of-the-art fraud prevention tools, and the ability to have full settlement of all payments in one to three days.
Stock reconciliation and real-time sales reporting to the standards required by all major banks and financial institutions are also made simple, using the system's bespoke tools.
"With all this massive capability on offer, and the chance to try it out free for three months, every business serious about selling online should need no further reason to find out how Realex can become an important element in the best e-shop solution from EKM Powershop available for any kind of enterprise," added Steven Hickey
