I followed your signature to your site (nice site!) and noticed you're using Instabill. I recently signed up with Revecom (who recently bought Instabill). They have a very nice system that is similar.
My question to you and others who might use similar services is how you integrate the online payments system into your signup process on your website. I'll be designing my site within the next few weeks and can use the insight.
Now, at your site (linkstream.net) and mine too when it's done, there is a list of web hosting plans with links to a Signup Page.
At this Signup page you list your plans sequentially and each one has an Instabill Quick Buy button. This takes you to a payments page that asks for your name, address, and credit card information.
What's missing is any mention of what domain name the user is planning on hosting with you. So I'm assuming that after the Instabill page, the user is redirected to a "web good page" back at your site where he queries the customer for more information.
What information would that be? That's all I want to know. And maybe the URL of a web good page so I can see the implementation.
What information should you require from your users for hosting their sites?
Revecom allows me to add custom fields to the online order screen. I added "Domain Name" and "Comments". I'm wondering if this is sufficient. See
(Can that URL be any longer?)
Go to the second page and you'll see my custom fields. I'm wondering if that is enough. Is there anythign I'm missing?
Alchiba, my apologies for singling out your site. It's great, clean, professional and informative. I'm always looking at everyone's sites to see how they're built. As a newbie, I'm just looking for some advice by someone whose using a similar payment service.
Any help or comments would be appreciated. Everyone else - feel free to chip in with some advice too.
Thanks in advance,
