The answer is Yes, but you might wanna make sure and wait for another person to confirm it as I am unsure of myself. Better yet, why don't you e-mail the iPage guys because they can help better...
Thanks for that. But I'm looking for a way of taking orders that I can process manually through my own PDQ unit. There are loads of modules to choose from but I don't want to install one to find out there is a better, more up to date module for the UK..
As always if you can help, I do appreciate it!..
I'm looking for exactly the same thing, for the same reason. We will be processing all our orders from a pdq terminal, and would like to have a module recommended that will take all of the main debit/credit cards..
If anyone has any ideas, please let us know...
That would require you store the credit card information. Thats not particularly a good idea and you definately cannot save the CVV data..
Just get a merchant account with secpay or protx (or some other provider) - much easier and less work for your admin people...
OK, I don't/won't be storing any card numbers, but I still need to manually process the cards. So what is the best uk card module??..
If you're not storing them - how do you get the information to process?..
Card Numbers would have to be stored in the db or how else would you have access to them?.
But let's be absolutely clear about this..
If you process online card transactions through an offline EPOS terminal then you are in violation of the agreement you have with the card companies. If they find out, which they do, then they'll send someone along to your shop and they will walk away with your EPOS terminal and you'll be put on a blacklist..
I know why shop owners want to do this - it's to save money - pure and simple..
You have a simple choice, when it comes to operating legally online:.
1. Use a service like Pay Pal, Barclays' ePDQ, HSBC's Secure ePayments, where you need an account but don't need to have an Internet Merchant ID, or ......
2. Get an Internet Merchant ID and use Protx Direct - which is far and away the best method of taking payments on your iPage website - the customer never leaves your iPage site - it's just the data that goes back and fore and no card data is stored on your website..
Okay, well that's useful information but I have a few questions on the matter;.
1) If I wanted to use this Protx Direct or Secway where would I get a Internet Merchant ID, or does it come with the Protx or Secway account?.
2) Once that was all sorted and I had that information ready, what module do you add to you oscommerce iPage site to make everything link up and work through the checkout process correctly and sucessfully?.
You get the merchant ID from your bank. If you go to the protx and secpay websites, they will list what banks they deal with. The protx iPage website is full of useful information as well..
There are two very good protx payment modules in the contributions. I use the protx direct one, has worked perfect for me...
Thankyou very much for your help everybody. I will have to note this all down...
I'm looking for the best payment module to use for taking both credit and debit cards. Here in the UK we have some cards that have a start date and others that have an issue number. As well as the CVV2..
Which is the best mod to use??.
Thanks for any help and advise..
I'm fond of Paypal and they have a great module for osCommerce. Do you have a PayPal account? if so you can set up your store to accept UK credit/debit cards easily...
