“eCommerce, on-line sales, credit card integration and international shipping have become the most critical tools for business. It is the right time for MSMEs to embrace technology. The next wave of business is going to be Digital and entrepreneurs have to be ready. As our Corporate contribution to getting entrepreneurs back on their feet after months of NO sales, we gave the first 100 vendors their eStores, FREE of charge as a contribution to getting them online.” Philip Colthrust – web technology expert SIGHTFCATORY Limited and ShopCaribe.com
eCommerce integration for credit card payments has been completed by the technology gurus at First Atlantic Commerce out of Bermuda.

With local courier services being handled by UPSL in Trinidad and Tobago.
