PEER 1 Hosting, the global online IT hosting provider, has announced a partnership with iMegaMedia, provider of e-commerce web design, e-commerce marketing and developer of the Pay4Later Magento Module plugin, which allows online retailers to offer instant credit to customers.
Today's iMegaMedia announcement follows news that PEER 1 has partnered with retail ecommerce provider Magento, to deliver an optimised hosting solution to online retailers. The Pay4Later Module provides online retailers with point-of-sale finance solutions (including interest free credit, low rate and classic credit) to offer to customers simply by adding the module to an existing Magento store. The Pay4Later finance option is displayed on the product pages and at the checkout. Express checkout buttons can be added to each product page, allowing customers to apply for credit, and purchase the item(s) entirely online, in less than 5 minutes.
Amanda Dunn, Director of Business Development EMEA, PEER 1 Hosting, which recently announced its 100th partner in the UK, said: "PEER 1 is committed to providing the optimal hosting environment for ecommerce. Online shoppers need a fast, secure and convenient shopping experience. With the addition of iMegaMedia's innovative solution to online, point of sale credit, we are able to provide ecommerce businesses with the right technology in the best environment, allowing them access to new sales opportunities."
Paul Tarantino, Managing Director of iMegaMedia said: "We did extensive research as part of the process of choosing PEER1 Hosting as our partner. We considered all of the obvious choices but it quickly became apparent that nothing stacked up to PEER1's offering. Not only is the flexible and scalable service second to none, frankly nobody else can offer the technology.
A big element of this is the fact that PEER1 has its own 10GB FastFibre network. Ecommerce is reliant on online advertising to draw in customers and for shoppers to experience a smooth transaction. The speed impact of the FastFibre network is such that bounce rates and empty shopping carts will be significantly reduced. In addition, the accountability and security benefits PEER 1 can offer as a result of being in control of its network, is very appealing. This, combined with the in-house expertise and an environment optimised for online retail, means I am confident that we can offer ecommerce businesses the right environment to build their business, 24x7x365."
