In business there are some things a Company can do and some things they can't, particularly where special skills are required.
Even with something as limited in scope as the Internet, we are the first to admit that some aspects are best left to other organisations who focus exclusively on other disciplines within the Internet "family".
Consequently we have identified a number of "approved partners" whose skills complement ours, in areas such as
- Internet connectivity
- 360° photography
- e-commerce credit card authorisation (real-time)
For Internet connectivity, domain names and DNS hosting, please contact Qruse Ltd on 0871 711 5222 or vist the website www.qruse.net

e-commerce credit card authorisation
Global Effect are an accredited partner with market leaders in real-time e-commerce solutions "Worldpay" and "Netbanx" and our technicians are fully conversant with the integration of these services.
A full shopping basket facility allows the site visitor to browse through products, adding any quantity to a basket (viewable at any time by the site visitor) with the number of items, costs including distribution being displayed. Once the site visitor is happy with the content of their basket they would simply click on the appropriate icon to secure the purchase.
At this point the site visitor would be enter secure area and leave credit card details (for real-time debiting via Worldpay or Netbanx on-line credit card service).
When using a third party real-time service such as Worldpay or Netbanx your organisation must first establish a relationship with the service provider notifying them of your web designers status (e.g. Global Effect), identifying them as an Accredited partner - remember, the contract for provision of real-time credit card services is ALWAYS between you (the client) and the banking supplier, NOT the technical integrator (Global Effect).
