@ Through Miva Merchant's modular architecture, many other payment processors can be integrated to a Miva Merchant storefront.

Modular Architecture
Miva Merchant is specifically designed so developers and aftermarket vendors can implement their own customized modules around a common API. Once a module is developed, push-button registration automatically integrates it into the main Miva Merchant system.

Modules can be developed for the following sub-systems:


    User Interface




    Sales Tax

    Batch Reporting

    Import / Export

    Buyer Traffic Reporting

    Intercept System Functions

Existing Site Integration
E-merchants who have sites in HTML can hyperlink directly into a Miva Merchant e-catalog. Key e-catalog functions such as product lookup, category presentation, shopping basket, and order forms can be accessed as components of existing HTML-based web sites.

All sensitive data can be encrypted with SSL prior to transmission. This includes the customer ordering process and processing of orders. Multiple layers of login permissions give a centralized manager the ability to grant store-level permissions to different developers and merchants.

Documentation and Support
Context-sensitive help is available for each key field in the administrative interface within Miva Merchant. In addition, online documentation is available on Miva's web site. Support for Miva products is available through Miva's Incident Reporting System and user group forums.

Site Administrator Friendly
Miva Merchant requires no daily management. Installation takes less than a minute on any Miva-enabled web server with several automated installation scripts provided free by Miva Corporation to hosting services and service providers.
