eDirectory DOES NOT make any charges of payment, nor takes any percentage of payments that go through the system. Once you get started, we’ll help you tie your merchant account (bank account) into a payment gateway like Authorize.net or Paypal. This way, any payments processed through the eDirectory system go from the payment gateway directly into your merchant account.
The hosted license is a Saas Model (software as a service) and is 'rented' on a month-to-month basis. You have all the features that the owned license has. Unlike the Hosted License, the full license gives you complete access to the source code, with the exception of the license key, so that you can customize the site’s look and feel as well as the features and functionality. You receive free support and upgrades in the first 30 days from purchasing the license.
