You can determine which plan you qualify for by checking with the “Annual Merchant Revenue” scale in the graphic below.
This pricing structure was announced in October of 2015, and many merchants were unhappy at the switch. Starter for Merchants with Annual Revenue $0 — $99,999.99When you sign up for your plan, you’ll receive a free SSL certificate and domain name, but you should expect to pay for both the domain name and the SSL certificate after the first year.
Alternatively, you can sign up for a developer account.
This account will let you try out a demo store, without the need to enter any payment information Miva’s pricing structure is based on revenue from your previous twelve months of sales (or estimated revenue if you’ve been selling for less than a year).
Miva Merchant is an e Commerce platform that provides enterprise level features and customizability, while still offering the usability and customer support one would expect from a Saa S (Software as a Service) solution.
