TD Bank Financial Group today announced the
launch of a new e-commerce service for small to medium sized merchants. Online
Mart, powered by Bell Nexxia, provides a secure environment for TD merchants
to connect with customers on the Internet. This service provides merchants the
ability to process online credit card transactions, receive around-the-clock
technical support, and access a full complement of electronic services to
enhance merchant websites as their business needs grow. These electronic
services are also available to those merchants with existing websites.
“Online Mart is yet another example of TD’s commitment to providing
customers with a full e-commerce solution for their business needs,” said
Steve Phillips, Vice President, Merchant Services. “We’re pleased to offer our
small to medium-sized business customers the convenience of a Web-based retail
solution tailored to meet their e-commerce requirements.”
Online Mart offers TD Merchant customers the ability to
– build a secure online storefront that enables online transactions;
– track online orders and view activity reports;
– allow customers to link from TD website www.tdcanadatrust.com directly to an easy-to-use directory of Canadian retailers registered with TD’s Online Mart; and
– obtain a customized e-mail account and one unlimited internet connection
Online Mart enhances TD’s other e-commerce initiatives, including its
award winning online banking service EasyWeb and TD MarketSite, Canada’s first
business-to-business trading portal launched by TD in July 2000.
“Bell Nexxia has worked closely with TD to provide an innovative suite of
solutions, including, Internet connectivity, web-based email and custom-built
portal content around a Bell-hosted e-commerce environment,” said Randy
Reynolds, president of Bell Nexxia.
Merchants who have an existing e-commerce site can also benefit from the
services provided by Online Mart by choosing to add components such as payment
services. This service can be easily added on to an existing e-commerce site
to help facilitate the collection of payments and provide merchants with
reports and information that they can use to improve their product or service.
The new portal found at www.tdcanadatrust.com/merchantservices/onlinemart
(www.tdcanadatrust.com/francais to link to the French version, Magasins en
ligne) outlines how businesses can establish or enhance their online presence
and also includes pricing information.
