Open Market Inc. said additional payment options were included in its most recent upgrade of the ShopSite store-building software for Internet commerce.
The new capabilities in version 3.4 include the Cybercash Inc. payment system as well as Citicorp's travel and entertainment brands, Diners Club and Carte Blanche.
The upgrades, which also brought improvements in search speeds, page updating, and security, apply to ShopSite Manager, the basic page-creation and management package for small businesses, and to the higher-end ShopSite Pro.
Reaching to the small-company market, Open Market acquired ShopSite's creator, Provo, Utah-based ICentral Inc., in May. "In only two months we beefed up these products to make them more robust," said Gail Goodman, Open Market vice president of Internet commerce products.
