In the payment of products and services today, there have been numerous changes as opposed to the conventional ways a while ago. Today, most economies have adopted the use of credit cards to make payments instead of hard cash. Part of this can be attributed to better security especially when making transactions which require bulk cash. Also there is the concept of convenience which is very critical especially in businesses.
Moreover, today businesses have gone global as they seek to tap a bigger market. Globalization has seen the introduction and growth of online transactions, a situation whereby people can shop conveniently at the comfort of their home or offices thus making e-commerce possible and smooth. Amazon is the best example of online shopping among many others.
Thus there is need to have a checking process which is reliable, secure and has ease of integration by businesses according to their needs. Thus businesses can be at a position to accept payments online from internet-based clients while clients are certain that they won’t be victims of fraud while making online transactions.

I’ve decided to create content concerning online shopping and e-commerce. Already there are some posts which I’ve published and you can access them by clicking through various categories below. Be sure to visit the site again for fresher content.
I remember the exact moment when I got into fitness and exercising. In high school, I was a pasty, somewhat chubby kid who desperately needed a weight loss program, but still somehow kept gaining weight. But, one day, my older brother took me to his gym and told me that places like this offer the simplest deal that exists: here, the more you work, the bigger the payoff.
He showed me a basic exercise routine and plainly told me that I only needed to do this for two months, and I would look like any of athletes in my school. I took him up on his offer in three months from then, I lost all my excess weight. In six months I was showing my first six-pack and two years later, I entered my first junior fitness competition.
From that moment on, I knew I would be a fitness guy for the rest of my life. That is why, during college, I began my online internet store selling weight loss and exercise equipment. This all happened over a decade ago. I went small-scale at first, only maintaining a website with several badly designed pages where I sold weights and other basic stuff like that.
During that time, I dream about opening a real store in my neighborhood and thought about the same prospect constantly. Somehow, I thought that an online store and e-commerce was just the tip of the iceberg. But, as transactions mounted I realized that there is a lot more to be gained from the internet-based clients than from having a physical store, even one in a very busy area.
From then on, I quickly realized that having a stable online platform, like TransActive e-commerce solutions, and some good suppliers and good customers meant that my internet shop could grow and develop. Soon, I opened up a small office and employed two people, which allowed me to put my venture on a fast track. One of them was also a marketing expert, specializing in social networking. In a matter of weeks, she created a solid promotional marketing plan and set in motion. We have not looked back since.
Today, our website has huge amounts of traffic, especially from social media like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The days of simple weights and dumbbells is gone and my online shop now provides over a thousand different items, ranging from sports and fitness clothing of all the big brands, to supplements and mineral compounds, protein bars and other eatable fitness accessory, all the way to the full home gym covering a range from a small foldable bench press to a complete fitness gym worthy of a 4-star hotel.
All of this is accessible to our internet-based clients using online transactions. As the world moves faster and faster into the domain of e-commerce, I am certain that my online store will continue to grow and bolster better and better sales.
But, there is a personal element that brings me more pride than my store ever could. Six years ago, my aunt, who was like a second mother to me, became ill. She had been diagnosed with breast cancer and even though it was detected on time, the mood in my family was grim. The same went for my aunt’s mental state, who tried to put a brave face on it all, but was struggling deeply, especially when it comes to her emotions. She was always a hiker and now, she suddenly found herself practically chained to her home. This provided her with a source of sadness and a lack of will to fight.
Instead of feeling sorry for her, I equipped her home with the best gym equipment on my stock. I told her the same story my brother told me more than 20 years before. Finally, I told her that a healthy body is a same body that beats cancer and that fitness as well as being involved in the Atkins Diet are definitely the best ways towards this essential goal. She was hesitant at first, but then gradually started to exercise. As the weeks turned into months, she became a real fitness maniac and just like with my weight loss, her results were visible – she was in great condition, the breast cancer was in remission and recently, she has been officially declared a survivor of the same illness.
She still orders things from my online store and no other client gives me more satisfaction and joy than my dear old aunt. She and people like her really make it all worthwhile a lot more than money alone ever could.
