Ecommerce Frequently Asked Questions


Are There Any Hidden Fees? 

With Our Ecommerce plans there are NO HIDDEN FEES!. We believe in bottom line pricing and the price you see is the price you will pay. The only other fees you may have with your Ecommerce store is the normal credit card transaction fees charged by whatever payment processor you choose. These fees vary widely but you can figure on paying some small percentage such as 2-3% per transaction in order to accept credit cards. At Hosting 4 Less we do not force you to use one processor. Our shopping cart supports over 40 different payment providers for you to choose from.

If you are an existing store who already accepts credit cards you can even use your existing merchant account. The consumer would purchase an item on your website and you would process the credit card as if the person gave you the credit card over the phone.
