The integrated sales tax system in Cartweaver 4 is extremely robust and flexible.

Multiple Payment Gateways and Checkout Options
Cartweaver 4 now supports multiple user-selectable payment options. Configure the desired payment methods in the easy administration area, and let your customers choose their preferred method of payment. With these easy options, a site can offer real-time processing through a trusted source such as Authorize Net, while allowing shoppers to pay through a PayPal account if they prefer. Connect your own additional payment provders, or select "in house" processing and take the order without collecting credit card information, for processing through internal billing methods. Increase sales by allowing the customer to use their preferred method of payment!
Product Image Upload & Automatic Resizing
Product image management has never been easier. Upload your original product image files, and Cartweaver 4 will automatically resize the image into the various sizes used in the cart display. A simple administration area is included, allowing for search and management of existing images, and designation of custom product photo sizes to fit your design. Multiple images-per-product can be configured with a few easy adjustments!
Easy One-Page Multi-Paneled Checkout
Once the customer decides to make a purchase, the checkout process should be as quick and easy as possible, leading to fewer abandoned carts and better sales. The new one page paneled check out with multi-step display makes this crucial part of the buying process fast, intuitive, and easy.
Dynamic Page Titles and Descriptions for SEO
HTML titles and meta descriptions for cart pages are now dynamically generated, based on the categories or products being displayed, preventing duplicate page titles and better exposing your product data to search engines.
