I have to design a website where clients can enter their credit card information and the company will then manually call in to process the orders. Is there any way to do this? I know storing CC information in a database is a BIG responsibility.
If this can't be done in a reasonable way, what other services are out there that act like Verisigns Paypflow Link? I don't need custom pages, but I do need to be able to process company credit cards (which rules out Payflow Link). Any names of companies that can provide a relatively inexpensive fee for CC processing would be much appreciated.
Hmmm. I'm not sure what the differences are between those names.
I'm looking for what I described in my first post. Either the first option to somehow store CC info securely (don't think this is possible and I don't want to be responsible for this) or the second option to have a merchant account.
Jtown, I'm a little confused are you looking for a processor or a gateway? To me it sounds as though you are looking for both. Or do you have a processor already and looking for a gateway that stores the credit/debit card information?
It looks like I've had a little misundertanding on how CCs are processed. Sorry for the n00bism. I need a full CC solution for a website I'm designing. I need customers to be able to come into my site and purchase items with a credit card. Order volume isn't high (thousand/year or so).
