Handling credit cards: point me in the right direction?
Posted 12 July 2006 - 09:57 PM
It needs to be a program that runs on our own server (ssl verisign certified) that talks to the credit card processing authority, then if the transaction goes through, sets a flag on the user's account which lets him use the system.
I have seen many solutions on the net like paypal that seem easy but since they do not run on your own server it seems impossible to say "if it works, flag this value". We want it to update user accounts automatically, because we don't have a full time guy checking the paypal and verifying people by hand.
Any help appreciated...

they have a service called Sandbox where you may test out your system without processing any actual payments. i'd download the manuals and get registered on Sandbox, as there are forums there where you can discuss what is going wrong with your setup. in short, paypal gives you all the tools you need to make integration and real-time processing possible.
hope this helps.

Hope this helps, my first suggestion though would be try and embed a database call in a customizable portion of the thank you page.
