I purchased eCardMax Gold 2006 in June. The company is EXTREMELY receptive, attentive and has added many of my suggestions.
eCardMax IS excellent for both personal and business use. It is high-tech / feature-rich. What I did manually before is NOW done automatically.
eCardMax Staff cares/IS there for you. They are continually upgrading, updating, making the program better.

04/22/2010 - UPDATED Review
I've used eCardmax successfully since June 2006. I am NOW in the process of having my site upgraded to the newest version eCardMax 2010 as it has an "abundant" amount of "up-to-date" features.
It is true, there is a fee to upgrade to the newest version, but no one is forced to do so. Server software has changed over the years and sometimes we just need to upgrade. The upgrade fee is a "fraction" of what was initially charged and offers many new features. I am upgrading because I WANT the new features. Having the latest features enable me to draw more income as PEOPLE WANT those features. Nothing in life is forever and to think that once you buy a product you get support forever is rediculous! Everyone would go out of business IF they NEVER charge an upgrade fee!
I've NEVER found a service that competes with what eCardMax offers and would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone wanting to either sell eCards or who wants to send their own eCards to their own customers, friends, relatives or loved ones. I say this because those who may be artistically inclined may want to be more in control of what they send and not be at the mercy of others to create their eCard designs.
Sincerely, Roz Fruchtman
