International E-Commerce Network LLC, an Internet commerce outsourcing company, has launched a Web hosting service.
Called IECN.NET, it is designed for businesses selling access to research, news, chat rooms, and other Web-based information.
The software comes bundled with customer service, technical support, payment, and back-office services. For IECN to host and process credit cards using its own merchant account program, the setup fee is $250, and there is a $250 minimum charge per month. When the merchant's account number is used, there will be a $350 setup fee and a charge for each transaction.
"Our goal is to revolutionize the Internet content publishing business by providing merchants with affordable electronic commerce solutions," said Heather Bennett, vice president of global sales for IECN.
