Buy a Compaq PC – do e-commerce

Deal with Freecom gives Big Q customers eBiz lift

Freecom.net has signed a deal to have its e-commerce software pre-loaded on all Compaq Prosignia PCs in the UK. The offer, which starts this month, is aimed at SMBs that want to set up a basic ecommerce facility on their Web site. The starter package is capable of putting 100 products up for sale. Compaq customers will get the package free for the first three months. It will then cost £50 per month. This is Oxfordshire-based Freecom's first such deal with a PC vendor. "It is another channel to market for Freecom, and part of its plan to expand following its flotation in December," said one Freecom representative. ® Related Story Cash Register: 16-30 Nov 1999
