This plugin is "Serviceware" that allows you to connect your WordPress site to the AreteX™ eCommerce Server. It requires SSL (https://) for secure communication with the AreteX server. Designed with robust flexibility for the WordPress professional, the plugin provides customer account management, payment tracking and reporting for referrers and contributors, and sales reports.
