There are so many online shopping cart options for todayís entrepreneurs and business owners to choose from. ShopTab features reviews of popular and recommended online shopping carts, interviewing the featured cartís developer, to provide an opportunity to learn about why their cart may be right for your business.
The week ShopTab interviewed Trajan King, the CEO of Verango Media. Verango Inc has been in business since May 2002. Trajan and Joel, President of Verango Media and founder of Veracart, have been in the Internet industry for over 15 years. With entrepreneurial spirits and impressive experience working with clients of all sizes (eBay, Adobe, Honda, Symantec, Oracle, AMD, Apple Computer, and Yahoo! To name a few), Trajan and Joel have made a powerful team within the industry. Working with their clients from their other businesses, Joel realized a need for a more complete shopping cart to solve the many issues their clients were having, and thus VeraCart was born.
Founded in 2002, Vercart has seen great success and grown quite a name for itself. Veracart offers the customizable, complete solutions your company may be looking for. They keep it simple with straight forward pricing and no software to install.
