Cable company NTL has kicked off its move into the business ecommerce market with a range of services that enable companies to establish online stores.
The service, called NTL shopbuilder, offers a free online storefront to any UK company. The service can be upgraded to services including Shop 15, which offers businesses an online shop of up to 15 products for £24.99 a month and Shop 1000, enabling the display of 1000 products for £99.99 a month.
NTL shopbuilder will be the first in a range of ecommerce products and services, said NTL, and is part of the company's attempt to break into the business ecommerce market.
Chris Hutchings, group managing director of NTL business, said: "We have extended the 'internet for all' approach of ntlworld [NTL's unmetered internet service] to the ecommerce market with the launch of NTL shopbuilder. NTL is now perfectly placed to own the business and consumer internet space in the UK."
Other services available include NetPilot, an internet access 'in a box' service and virtual hosting services. NTL said it will announce partnerships with application service providers and online content providers over the next year.
