What range of mobile phones can access your site? iPads? Readers? iPods?


Ipads can view normal websites with general ease so we do not target these. Ipods are portable media players, not used for browsing the internet traditionally and readers are specifically for e-books, not websites. The mobi site is designed to target mobile phone users, including smart phones (e.g. Blackberry, Android, HTC, etc.)

Does your service include statistical reports?


You do get access to cpanel which is a control area where you can view your web statistics for the mobi.

Do your prices include VAT?


We are not VAT vendors, by law, so there is no VAT added to our prices.

Does your service include other media besides text and images such as animated gifs, Mp3s, Mp4s, etc?


We can add the other media mentioned into the mobi site, but it is advised to avoid these on mobis as the concept of a mobi site is to make the experience more user-friendly and considerate of limited data bandwidth. Should you opt to include such files, these need to be supplied via email or on a memory stick. We however strongly advise against this and accept no responsibility for poor performance of your mobi site if these elements are added.

How much exposure will I receive on Google and Yahoo?


We do optimize the website as we are developing it and perform an initial submission to the major search engines to ensure maximum coverage but we cannot guarantee where the site will be placed in search results.

How will a mobi site help me reach my target market?


The target market is captured by including the correct information on the web page as well as incorporating the correct search phrases in the optimisation of the site. Therefore, this is determined by you, although we are happy to advise with regards to this. In addition, the mobi site targets mobile users in particular whereas 'normal' websites are often abandoned by mobile users because they are not easy to use on a cellphone or smart phone.

Can payments be processed on your site? Eg PayPal. I have no card facility on-site and this would make it possible for me to receive card payments.


It is not considered secure to process payments via a mobi website. However, all you need to do is set up an account with Paypal (and you need to have an FNB account as that is the only way to access your Paypal funds in South Africa). You will have the facility to invoice people from Paypal, enabling them to make payment directly to you without disclosing any of their sensitive information.

Does it have to be hosted on your servers?


Not at all. As with all our websites, you are free to host your site wherever you wish.

Is there any kind of long-term contract or tie-in ?


Unlike various other companies that develop mobi websites, we do not tie you down in any way. Hosting is done on our normal month-to-month contract which requires a calendar month's notice.
