    Plesk 8.1.1 supports MIVA Merchant 5 and Fast Track

    I'm please to announce MIVA Merchant 5 and MIVA Merchant Fast Track are now supported directly within Plesk 8.1.1. That said, it looks like Remik beat me to the punch!

    This integration is very nice - it automatically installs MIVA Empresa in a single server wide location, then configures each virtual host that requires MIVA Empresa support using the environment variable method. The installation includes all available commerce libraries and OpenSSL configuration, so installing MIVA Merchant and Fast Track on Plesk based servers is a breeze!

    SWsoft Announces the Availability of MIVA E-commerce Software with Plesk
    March 28, 2007
    Adds MIVA Support to Plesk Control Panel

    HERNDON, Va. and SAN DIEGO, Calif., March 28, 2007 – Service providers can now offer their customers an easy way to develop, maintain and grow an online business thanks to a new software offering available from SWsoft and MIVA Small Business Solutions, Inc. Through an agreement between the two companies, SWsoft will resell MIVA Merchant™ e-commerce software and will deliver integrated support for MIVA in the SWsoft Plesk control panel.

    SWsoft is offering two versions of MIVA Merchant software with Plesk: MIVA Merchant 5 for small-to medium-size businesses and MIVA Merchant Fast Track for smaller and start-up businesses. By adding MIVA support to Plesk, hosting providers will benefit from patented technology in Plesk that will allow them to automate a large number of tasks and lower the cost of offering MIVA software to their customers.

    "The agreement with MIVA allows us to deliver a powerful solution for service providers, which integrates two leading technologies – SWsoft Plesk control panel and MIVA Merchant," said Serguei Beloussov, CEO of SWsoft. "The partnership advances our OPEN FUSION strategy by creating a unified platform for hosted e-commerce."

    "By partnering with SWsoft, we will enable service providers to offer their customers a comprehensive e-commerce solution that is flexible, reliable, expandable and easy to use," said James Harrell, vice president and general manager of MIVA Small Business. "We believe that the combination of MIVA Merchant with Plesk will create new revenue streams for hosters through e-commerce offerings and software leasing agreements."

    MIVA Merchant for e-Commerce
    MIVA Merchant software provides a streamlined solution to launch an e-business simply, quickly and cost effectively. MIVA Merchant 5 includes advanced catalog, customer and order management systems, no limits on the amount of store data, complete store design control with new Store Morph Technology™, integrated credit card processing and shipping calculation, and an expansive list of add-on modules and services.

    MIVA Merchant™ Fast Track is specifically designed for new online businesses with simple setup, powerful design tools, advanced catalog, customer and order management systems, integrated payment and shipping calculation and robust marketing features.

    "By offering MIVA Merchant with Plesk, SWsoft is giving us an opportunity to grow our business with exciting e-commerce capabilities at competitive prices to attract and retain customers," said Remik Kolodziej, president of dotCOMhost, a MIVA Premier Hosting Partner and SWsoft Gold Partner.
