Title
(EN) METHOD AND ARRANGEMENT FOR COLLECTING AND USING POST INTERNET SALES INFORMATION
(FR) PROCEDE ET DISPOSITIF DE COLLECTE ET D'UTILISATION D'INFORMATIONS RELATIVES A DES VENTES EFFECTUEES SUR INTERNET
Abstract
(EN)
The invention is a method for gathering detailed information about products (and services) purchased on the Internet by examining electronic mail acknowledgements. When consumers (111) purchase products over the Internet, the seller (123) sends an acknowledgement back to the consumer listing the products purchased. Then registration entity's server (130) makes a copy of the acknowledgement, parses it, and stores it in a database at the server. The consumer (111) then connects to the server (130) and downloads new purchases into a database on his PC. Client software running on the PC enables the consumer to search and analyze the list of products purchased, to check off the products received, and to load purchases into financial management software, such as Intuit's Quicken and Microsoft Money. If the seller (123) sends an email acknowledgement of the shipment, the registration entity (130) will get a copy of it and then inform the consumer and record the shipment in transit in the client database. If the seller (123) does not send an email acknowledgement, but instead makes shipment information available on the seller's web site, and then the server (13) software will probe the web site periodically, continuing as if an email acknowledgement were sent to the consumer (111).

Procédé de collecte d'informations détaillées sur des produits (et services) achetés sur Internet par l'examen des confirmations par courrier électronique. Lorsque des consommateurs (111) achètent des produits par Internet, le vendeur (123) renvoie une confirmation au consommateur, sur laquelle figure la liste des produits achetés. Ensuite, le serveur (130) de l'unité d'enregistrement fait une copie de la confirmation, l'analyse et la met en mémoire dans une base de données du serveur. Le consommateur (111) se connecte alors au serveur (130) et télécharge en aval de nouveaux achats dans une base de données sur son ordinateur personnel. Le logiciel client tournant sur l'ordinateur personnel permet au consommateur de passer en revue et d'analyser la liste de produits achetés, de vérifier les produits reçus et de charger des achats dans un logiciel de gestion financière tel que Intuit's Quicken et Microsoft Money. Si le vendeur (123) envoie une confirmation par courrier électronique de l'expédition, l'unité d'enregistrement (130) en obtient une copie, informe ensuite le consommateur et enregistre l'expédition en transit dans la base de données clients. Si le vendeur (123) n'envoie pas de confirmation par courrier électronique, mais met les informations d'expédition à disposition sur son site web, le logiciel du serveur (130) explore le site web périodiquement et continue comme si une confirmation par courrier électronique avait été envoyée au consommateur (111).
