    anyone have any experience with one?

    how long do these things take to setup roughly?

    one of my clients is asking me for a quote and I've never dealt with one...I am just confused at a couple of things

    is this correct for the process:
    -user adds crap to SC
    -user checks out SC
    -user enters info, CC, etc, gets stored in DB *is to be to be encrypted in any special way or just base64 encoded?*
    -owner gets email notifying him/her of new transaction...no private info in emial
    -owner logs into 'admin' and has access to user's information/CC #

    am I missing anything? is there anything I am overcomplicated?

    any feedback appreciated, I'll be the first to admit that I know nothing about this

    This can only end with a security breach and credit card numbers going public.

    1) No need to store the CC#, let the purchase carrier do that
    2) use a 3rd party app, why re-invent the wheel, they probably did a better job anyway

    k thanks

    but what do you mean purchase carrier? he (owner) is the one who is responsible for processing the transaction...I need to be able to store the user's info+cc data somewhere...unless you mean like the bank or someshit

    regarding #2, that's the plan dude, I am just trying to wrap my head around how this works so I have a basic idea

    One of our clients uses MetaCharge, they cost more, but they/we are happy with their service and support
