OK never done one but I need to do one quick.......

I would really appreciate some pointers that can take me beyond the curl tutorial on this site. Ideally I would like to create a script that allwos you to use credit/debit cards of a specified type (in a config setting or something) and paypal.

Again I would really appreciate some pointers here people - it could mean a full-time job for me. ;)

To accept credit/debit cards you would need a Payment Gateway, for PayPal you can visit their site as they offer sample integration scripts...

google it.

basicaly each payment gateway has a unique method of passing the variables from yoursite

ie on paypal you can chose to create a one line aggregated basket total over or an itemised order...the choice is yours.  Of course then all the handling of CC's is done by them.

Other gateways just handle the processing of the card such as Protx.

I will be honest here.  I'd suggest that if you are serious about this job...you'd better hurry.Full time e-commerce is not for the faint-hearted.  Lots and Lots of code to disect even with pre-built apps such as 'oscommerce'

In all custom built cases you will need a shopping cart functionality (like 'oscomerce'), a payment processing functionality (like 'Protx') a Internet Merchant account (like mega expensive to maintain ...lol) to recieve your payments and finally sh*t loads of time and brains.

Wait...I've got it...Bollocks, it's gone again!

If at first you don't succeed....stop using ASP and get onto PHP

ok

I think I got the brains, the time not really.

So you suggest i downlaod oscommerce and pull it apart? OK will do....

No payment processing - will CURL do? I read the tutorial on this site and that seemed straight forward (but too easy may = not good enough?) and leave the types of payment aviavle to the merchant account (I assume they will use verisign until I know better)..

Cheers willpower you're a gent.
