    Taking Payments

    Hi All,

    I hope this is the correct section to post, i'm redoing a website for someone and they want to take payments but don't have a merchant account, he has another site that has a page that people fill in all their detials including card details and when it is submitted it is encrypted and sent, anyone know how to do this, would it be possible to make a form that will send via email but use it with an ssl cert?

    Once I get his current page I'll post the link so you guys can look over it.

    Many Thanks

    Well, you could set up an SSL certificate on the domain or subdomain where the forms going to be filled out and sent:

    Once sent, it'll go to the e-mail address. You could go one step further an encrypt the e-mail via TLS, but it can be expensive and probably something a larger organisation might do.

    Maybe you should look into using World pay, That’s one of the most secure payment methods to use than having a few php scripts.

    He should use paypal. the majority of people have paypal accounts and the fees are small. Payments are completely secure so there is no SSL or anything for you to worry about setting up.

    I also use World Pay for clients that are worried about security. Once you setup your account, which takes awhile everything runs smoothly from then on.
