Credit cards charge

P: n/a
I in the process of building a web-site using .net (C#). I just
finished building the shopping cart. What I need is to find examples,
details, or code packages that I can include in my web-site to let
users checkout by charging a credit card. I would appreciate all the
help I can get.

You are going to need to talk to your bank. Somehow you want the money
to get into your account, so you will need to set up an account if you
do not have one already.

Once this is set up your bank can advise you on who to approach for the
credit card proessing services and in turn these guys can supply with an
API. A web-services interface will probably suit you best. There are a
lot out there, some will offer basic services and some will offer
advanced fraud checking, but the interfaces are all pretty simple - you
give them your ID, the credit card number and the amount, they take care
of debiting the card holder's account and crediting your account (and
charging commission of course).

If it is a very small operation look into using something like PayPal
instead, they might cost more per transaction but may work out more
economical for small volumes.

Thanks Steve,

I already have a merchant account, credit card services, and all the
technical IDs and numbers that come with it. I forgot who my credit
card company is, but my bank knows. As far as the "business" aspect of
setting myself up goes, I am already set-up completely. I even have a
web-site on yahoo where my customers can purchase items by charging
their credit cards. But that web-site was built using yahoo's own
limited tools and the credit card charges go through their backbone to
get to my credit service company. Yahoo does not allow me to create my
own shopping cart, checkout function, or the credit charging process.
Their tech support told me, point blank, that they don't allow anyone to
code their own personalized shopping cart, etc.,.. Even the regular
web-site pages have to have nothing other than simple HTML code. I
think that is very limited.

I am planning to move my web-site elsewhere.

I am also a programmer by trade and I need the flexibility of .NET (C#).
If you or anyone else knows of a piece of code, examples, freeware,
shareware, or dll-s that I can include into my project, or even code
that piece from scratch if I had examples to guide me, I would be most
appreciative.

I checked out some of the commercial packages out there. They are very
expensive. That is why I am looking to build my own, or re-use some
existing code floating around.

I would advise extreme caution. If you decide
to use some free product or free code, make sure that you are dealing with well
tested and stable code. It would not be good to make mistakes in a project like
this. :)

Lance, thank you for the link and suggestion. I checked the web page
but I was a little confused as to what exactly would the "IP*Works! CC
V5 .NET Edition" alone (listed at $249.00) provide me. I saw other
products listed besides this one once I clicked on the shopping cart
icon. These other products, among other things, list licenses that I
may or may not need (here is where I need some help).

I am planning on moving my web-site to another host other than yahoo.
I have no idea how many CPUs they would have, and I am not really sure
if this knowledge applies to affect the decision on what package to
buy from the web-site you suggested.

The process will still stay the same where a Joe Public (my site will
be public, no login screens) would buy items and charge them on his
credit card right there and then. The credit card charge will always
go to one and only one credit card service company with whom I have
contracted. Would I need any other package besides the one listed
above ("IP*Works! CC V5 .NET Edition")?

Your help will be greatly appreciated.
