The service -- BT StoreCentre -- has been developed by Intel and allows users to build an online store or incorporate one into an existing Web site. It displays up to 3,000 products and guides online shoppers through the purchasing process. BT will offer real-time credit card transaction processing. Companies will be charged £456 a year for the service.

BT spokesman David Marshall hopes the system will allow smaller businesses to compete on a level footing with the big, technical savvy firms.

The service is available through BTs Web site
