Integrated e-commerce system
Monetise your content and integrate access with purchase more easily. The SAMS e-commerce module is a full e-commerce system with your choice of payment service gateways.
With library budgets under pressure, selling access directly to students and researchers is becoming an increasingly important business model. SAMS e-commerce allows end users to purchase ebooks immediately.
Users search for publications and will be prompted to buy a subscription where none exists through their library or department. In order to purchase access they’ll need to create a personal account. The ability to gather details about end users provides publishers with the opportunity to establish a direct relationship with readers, who can be strong advocates for individual titles.
The module can be integrated with existing merchant accounts or be configured to use third party processing systems such as PayPal.
Sell different publications in different ways using the same central system:
- Date limited subscriptions
- Duration limited subscriptions
- Perpetual subscriptions
- Grace periods
- Token/voucher based access
- Concurrency limits
- Free limited access
- Marketing and service emails targeting users based on defined subscription parameters
