Leader in Order Fulfillment Systems
Interested in a special feature, just send us an email.
Industry Leader in Order Fulfillment Systems
launched in 1994 and quickly became home to a broad range of products
sold by independent developers and creators. Today we serve over 7,000
vendors who sell more than 50,000 products in 118 countries. We provide
international and domestic consumers the ability to electronically purchase,
register, upgrade and download shareware, commercial software, music,
graphics, clip art, illustrations, photography, books, embroideries,
fonts (type) and more. We give developers of products a way to focus
on creative rather than routine tasks, by handling every aspect of the
electronic transaction. Beyond our basic transaction services we offer
many expanded services that help vendors to better sell their products.
Kagi's low industry rates are an anomaly when considered with our trusted and reliable service. We have recently simplified our rate structure, and for many vendors this means even lower rates.
10% of the transaction ($2.50 minimum) or 5% plus $5 per transaction whichever is less.
When a refund is authorized for a customer, Kagi refunds the customer
and debits the vendor account for the full product price. There are
no handling fees or other charges.
Kagi's new volume discount plan rewards vendors who reach their highest sales goals.
Biweekly, or weekly payment options are available for an extra per check fee.
Kagi systems have been designed with great attention to reliability and security. Our power supplies and Sybase database are fully redundant. We maintain multiple Internet connections resulting in an average uptime of 99.86% and our website is built on WebObjects for scalability. Our substantial history with transactions has enabled us to develop highly effective fraud screening capabilities.
Kagi has always placed a premium on excellent customer service. We have enjoyed a very loyal following from our vendors, who tell us that after reliability and security, what they value most is the effort we put into servicing our vendors and their customers. We offer telephone, web and fax service.

Our custom order page fee is $20 per month, which includes the custom credit card statement text. For further information please read the FAQ.
Customized email to your customers
Your customer will receive an e-mail after each order which includes an order confirmation and "Thank you" message. You may customize the message by product or license. You may also include information about product installation or set-up. (A postal receipt can be mailed for an additional fee to the customer).
Custom Vendor Approval Process
a new feature that enables our vendors to participate in approving an
order. If you choose this service you will be notified via email that
a sale is in progress. You can approve or deny that sale via an easy
html link. This feature is helpful for inventory control as well as
offering an additional level of fraud control.
the challenges online payment services face are non intentional duplicate
orders from customers. To the vendor this might be added cost and hassle.
Kagi has created a feature which allows vendors to decide which products
can be purchased multiple times. We call this feature our "Duplicate
Order Filters". By default we allow a product to be purchased once per
day with a credit card. However, if a duplicate order is detected, it
will only be processed once the customer approves it.

Our vendors can place a test order at any time. You will see what the customer experiences when placing an order for your product, and receive the e-mail acknowledgment your customer receives when the transaction is complete.
Kagi vendors receive a monthly statement that includes customer name, product purchased, serial number, price and order date. Normally, vendor payments are sent within 3 weeks after month's end. You can choose to be paid in the following ways.
You may choose to set a monthly threshold because processing a check may occasionally exceed or negate the value of that check (common with foreign checks). You can establish a minimum payment threshold. We will defer issuing a check until the next payment cycle that meets your minimum threshold.
foreign bank may charge extra fees for a US check.
No Exclusivity Required - No Sign-up Fee, No Monthly Fee
not charge up front or monthly fees and does not require that our vendors
use only one payment processing service. For some vendors, it may make
sense to have a "back-up" service listed on your website. If you are
currently with another on-line processor, please consider trying Kagi
as well. We hope to earn the right to be your primary service. The Kagi
name is recognized by literally millions of customers and represents
high integrity and reliable service.
Free affiliate tracking support
There are two flavors of affiliate tracking systems: those that want a pass through reference and those that use a cookie on your customer's browser. The Kagi Online Order Processing system supports both. There is no extra cost to the vendor for Affiliate tracking support with most Affiliate tracking sites.
Royalty splits for Collaborators
Creating a world-class product often requires many people or companies working together. Kagi makes it easy to split royalties between such collaborators. For instance, there may be a translator and graphic artist who have worked with your coding to complete a product. You tell us how the funds from each sale are to be allocated. We handle all the accounting and fund transfers.
Software developers who are Kagi vendors use this forum to discuss current issues, problems and solutions.
You can set up volume pricing (prices depending on the quantity the customer is ordering) by using a table. Questions: email@example.com
Tracking Customers and Orders from other Payment Services
is a unique feature to track customers and orders from other payment
processors in one secure place. This is done via email order notifications.
If your alternate payment processor is not supported at this time, let
us know and we will gladly add them to our system. If you use multiple
processors, we can be the central database for all your transactions.
