Fastmart Partnership Program
As you can see from the drop-down information on our home page, Fastmart is a high quality, uniquely fast and adaptable website software system that can be quickly assembled for any company or business wanting to sell products or services online. It can even be hooked up to any existing website by simply replacing behind-the-scene obsolete software systems.
Our Fastmart Partnership Program has been born out of an interesting though problematic conundrum. You see, there are some brilliant graphically designed websites on the internet that are unfortunately coupled to badly set up and/or slow operating software systems. On the other hand we also have custom-built software systems online (generally expensive) that operates quite well though happen to be poorly designed graphically. Hence our Fastmart Partnership Program, by uniting the best of both worlds.
Interpreting The Fastmart Partnership Program
Once you, the Applicant, become a joined-up Member of our Fastmart Partnership Program, you can then negotiate with your prospective client/s and design a website for them that will allow us in turn to hook up our Fastmart system(s), a system as described on the home page of the Fastmart website. You can then buy our Fastmart system at wholesale and sell at a recommended retail price, and, of course, adding your particular price for graphically designing the website. Please keep in mind that your prospective client/s will have additional fees to pay (including an SSL Security Certificate - usually between three to six hundred dollars) as listed further on under 'Monthly Hosting Fees'. Any additional changes, modifications or updates requested during development of the website Project shall be charged extra for at a wholesale hourly rate.
All you need to do is to send us any relevant information that allows us to view some of your work, via website or other means, and show us that you are a Graphic Designer. You will need to further agree to our Fastmart Development Policies, and, our Terms & Conditions. You will then become a Member of our Fastmart Partnership Program, and we in turn will send you all of the needed documentation, such as Agreements, Prices and Specs, etc., to carry on business. Hope to see you on board. Please join here...
Once joined we will also send you our Fastmart User Manual, with username and password, allowing you to practice and review on our example Fastmart online store that includes the Fastmart business package.
After receiving the client- approved Graphic Design for a proposed website, and allowing for an eMatters account and SSL Security Certificate set-up, the Fastmart system will be completed and set up online by us by approximately 4 to 6 weeks.
Monthly Hosting Fees
Standard website hosting fees start from $35.00 which includes a total of 30 minutes or equivalent technical support services for each month (free for the first 12 months) - extra considerations need to be made for the hosting fees of each individual retailer (e.g., $10 to $15 per month – depending on requirements) - applies mainly to full online shopping centres. Excess is charged at $66.00 per hour (includes GST) of service provided thereafter. Please note that if and when a nominated monthly bandwidth limit is exceeded then Overages are charged for at the rate of 12c/MB. Additional costs for each online store will include an SSL Security Certificate and monthly eMatters account fees.
Fastmart Version 1.0 Upgrades
Free incremental upgrades for all Fastmart products will be provided for the first two years as part of our package deals. We will notify you and your client in advance of upgrade times to minimise inconvenience.
Legal documentation in the form of Service Agreements and Terms and Conditions will be provided by us, Starburst Publishing Pty Ltd, for any and all of our Fastmart Partnership Members. However, the onus will be on the Fastmart Partnership Program Member and/or his or her particular client to ensure the applicability and legality of our copyrighted legal documentation.
Our Fastmart Development Policies
All website developments, as part of our Fastmart Partnership Program, will be hosted on our Hosting Provider, Quadra Hosting, or similar such company. Starburst Publishing Pty Ltd through its Fastmart Division will set up an eMatters merchant account (or similar such company) which will deposit future funds directly into the nominated client's bank account. Ownership of this eMatters merchant account will be transferred to the relevant owner of the website once the project is completed. Any and all client-approved graphic design work with relevant text information and pictures will need to be provided before starting any Fastmart website project.
Unless otherwise negotiated, a goodwill deposit of 25% will be required at the acceptance of any Fastmart website project. 50% is to be paid when the website is nearing completion. The last 25% is to be paid when the website is fully completed and set up online.
