Default Secure CC Payments

Hello

I am planning to get CC payment to my website. I just wonder How can I secure my CC transaction on my site?

If you use a CC processing vendor like Link Point or someone else, they will actually do the security for you. If you want to do it yourself, I am not 100% sure. You could search for a web design firm that specializes in that on google, or talk to (and I don't recomend using them) Network Solutions. I don't recomend them because their product pricing is usually very high, but they will probably tell you what you need to do to get it going.

You would need to get an SSL certificate installed on your site. There are tons of them out there. Your website host probably sells them. Where ever you get your merchant account and payment gateway, they are going to require you have an SSL certificate in place first.

Personally I don't prefer to maintain my merchant accounts with SSL installaions etc.

At first go with third party processors like paypal, 2checkout etc.

If you really want your own payment gateway integrated these are the steps:

* Develop or buy a cart that allows you to run your own CC transactions. (They will have API interface to easily include payment gateways)
* Install SSL certificate. your host will help with that.
* Sign up for payment gateway like authorizenet.
* Integrate it in to your cart.

You will need to use a secure payment gateway.

The gateway we use for our customers is authorize.net

It can be build into your website to look seamless, and you also get a virtual terminal.

I have a demo account setup that you can check out if it's something you might be interested in. Shoot me an email.

3rd Party Payment Processors are generally a good idea for someone just starting out selling on the internet. Some provide you with everything you need to accept and manage payments online. Depending on the type of product you are selling, some 3rd party companies may work better for you than others-it all depends on your business goals and the tools you need to accomplish them.

Another benefit to using a 3rd party service is that they maintain the merchant account so you don't have to take on the responsibility of being PCI compliant, which is basically the Payment Card Industries data security standard. There are many factors that play a role in obtaining and owning a merchant account, not to mention all the fees you'll be responsible for as well.

Hope this helps.
