We have a B&M store so we already have a credit card solution (just have to get our system upgraded to DSL instead of phone line). I've chosen my web hosting although I haven't gotten it set up yet. How hard is it to configure your site to accept the credit card code? Is it normally where you just plug in the code provided or is it more difficult than that? I'm not really sure what I'm asking so I hope all of that made sense. Any info you can give will be appreciated.

As Carey Bryant said for any online transaction is required to have an Internet Merchant Provider and Payment gateway. The integration on your website should be completed by a development firm or a programmer.
