Information relating to the advertising application, advertising information, and advertising fee payment information is sent from a client PC (5) via the Internet (10) to a server system (1); the server system (1) calculates fee information according to the received advertising information, and sends it via the Internet (10) to the client PC (5). After confirming completion of the payment process, the server system (1) sends the advertising information to a central system, and the central system distributes the received advertising information to the plural POS systems (3, 7) connected to the central system.
