"Despite the minor-sounding version number, Interchange 4.6 is a major change from prior releases. The package, which shipped in October, is actually a merger of Akopia's two storefront packages: Tallyman, which has good graphical management tools but weak shopping features, and MiniVend, which has a feature-rich shopping engine but no graphical administration tools whatsoever."

What a difference good tools make! Interchange 4.6's graphical administration tools... are comprehensive and professional, with an easy-to-navigate layout and online help."

"Interchange is distributed using the open-source GNU General Public License (and therefore is free to download and use) and is written in Perl. Akopia offers technical support, hosting services starting at $300 per month, and custom installation and programming contracts starting at a few tens of thousands of dollars."
