Adobe Business Catalyst is a unified hosting platform that enables you to work in your preferred editing environment to create sites that meet client requirements,
without any server-side coding. The Business Catalyst hosting solution provides website management tools, email marketing, e-commerce, and an integrated
customer database that makes it easy to build and publish websites.
The data centers that host Business Catalyst are located in Tier 4 data center facilities, and the servers have:
Once your clients log in, they will have immediate access to their contact database, orders, web form submissions, products, catalogs, web pages, and email marketing campaigns from one central location — all built to work together.
The Business Catalyst data centers are located on three continents to help customers receive optimum response times from their websites:
Yes. With the Business Catalyst e-commerce functionality, you can sell both physical and electronic products. In the case of electronic products, the system will automatically provide your customers who have made a successful payment for their purchase with a link to download the products. You can limit how many times an electronic product is downloaded after purchase.
Yes. Business Catalyst has support for using multiple currencies in your online store. You can set up your store so that customers from different geographies automatically see the right price and currency, helping to maximize your conversions.

Business Catalyst also provides a built-in advanced reporting system with every site, which you can use without any extra configuration.

No. Adobe does not take any portion of your client's online sales. However, the payment gateway or bank may charge a fee to process payments.
You can use the built-in workflow framework to choose who you want notified each time a customer inquires and how you want them to be notified, for example, via email, SMS, or both. If you want SMS notifications, you can buy a suitable SMS pack.
Business Catalyst automatically generates a sitemap that Google, Yahoo!, and Bing can use, helping to ensure that your website gets maximum visibility through these popular search engines.
Because Adobe respects your HTML code and won't change it, your website's XHTML standards compliance will depend on the HTML code that you create. However, if you do insert any system modules onto your web pages, the code generated by the system will be compliant.
