What is My Postcards Platinum?

My Postcards Platinum © is a ready-to-use Web Application. It includes executable precompiled C++ programs, shell scripts, HTML templates, manuals and admin tools (e-mail address extraction, elements frequency stats, usage stats, old cards cleanup).

This is a truly unique product - there is nothing like it on the market. You can embed any multimedia components into cards. So far our PRO and PLATINUM clients use java applets, shockwave flashes and real audio. Midi files are supported in all versions, even the basic Free service.

This is VERY fast web application. See what our users wrote (from our 1st Christmas survey)

"This service is so fast as well. I can send a card faster than my AOL browser loads."
"Unbelievable! Your card site is so fast. When I use the back button the page is like turning the page in a book, it's that fast. Any other pages I have viewed on the web always seem to reload. GREAT is all I can say. What's the trick?"

You don't have to worry about overloading your server even if your traffic is very high (30+ Gb daily transfers are no problem).

Our software is very light on disk space which is always a concern with popular postcard services (average 0.5 Kb per card).

No need to take our word for this - have look at our customer sites in the My Postcards network directory (view Platinum sites), contact webmasters and solicit their opinion.

e-commerce solutions
The ability to integrate cards with many affiliate programs is added. Your visitors are returned to card sending after finishing the transaction on the affiliate site.
Even more card composition features
You didn't think it's possible to have more? Well, it is! Picture captions and blurbs, as well and song lyrics are added. A new placeholder for font face is added.
