OrderXchange FAQ

What does it cost?

@UK PLC charge £1,500 per year for an OrderXchange connection, and setup is normally £3,000 in the first year.  There is a tool kit for both Microsoft ASP and DotNet to make implementation easy for an additional £300.

How long should it take to implement?

Your developers only have 3 web pages to build to implement OrderXchange so it should be quick and easy… It does depend on the complexity of your website, but most developers take less than a week, and it can be as little as a day with the tool kit. We recommend a week for development and testing.
