Building a website for your business can be complicated and time consuming, especially if you are a small e-commerce company. Dealing with payment fees can be an expensive hassle. That’s why Round Rock-based startup SalesCart believes that companies should be able to set up e-commerce online stores on-the-go.

SalesCart allows merchants to reach their market by decoupling the online store from the website design/hosting. This allows them to have more flexibility without needing advanced programming or template coding. By getting more for less, smaller companies are able to compete with the market.

This is especially optimal for those selling from from Facebook and their own mobile apps, or anywhere else for that matter, with a 100% complete end-to-end solution including credit card acceptance. With a reported 42% of marketers confirming that Facebook is critical or important to their business, this is an optimal solution for small businesses.

Furthermore, SalesCart is the first shopping cart that is out-of-scope for PCI (encrypted cardholder data), which means businesses don’t have to pay PCI fees and scanning requirements. The payment options vary, but for merchants the fees start at $35  quarterly.

As for being a startup in Texas, Co-Founder Michael Barber says there are many advantages: “Biggest advantage is this city is more friendly to startups, especially smaller startups. The disadvantage is everything is downtown and I hate parking in the city.”
