VeriSign in PHP

I am planning out an e-commerce site, which I will most likely create
in PHP. I am going to use VeriSign to process the credit cards.

How would I use VeriSign in a PHP script? I've found some examples of
PHP's Payflow Pro functions, but I haven't been able to get them to
work on the server we have. The site will be hosted on a UNIX server.

Firstly, make sure you know which product you are using. PayFlow Pro or
Link? Then log into the manager, and look for the documentation link.
There should be API docs to use to interface with their server. All the
info you need should be in there. (At least they were about 4 years ago
when I had to use them for something.)

Some processes are handoffs which take care of all the ordering.
Others take only the CC number/info and process it, & give back
a go/nogo status and maybe a confirmation number. It all depends
upon the particular process you choose to go with.

http://search.verisign.com/query.htm...gn+api&x=0&y=0
might help. They appear to have several from which to choose.

Ian, criticism is great. But it is even better when you provide an
alternative solution.

Practically _any_ other payment gateway.

I'm pretty sure that anyone with half a clue on how the net works will
understand why I absolutely dispise veryslime (I'm certainly not alone)..
them and netsoil should take a running jump.

There's many other gateways available, this is like lining up a Porsche,
Ferrari and a Robin Reliant.. and picking the Reliant.. it's just the pits
compared to the others available (with the minus that Reliant never
thought they could own all roads too).

Oops, I guess to answer you properly:
<http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=online+payment+gateways&ie=UTF-8&hl=en&btnG=Google+Search&meta=>
There's many references there.. to name a few:
- Netbanx
- Worldpay
- Protx
- Authorize.net
- SECPay
Might even find using one of the others that the OP actually gets
transactions ;)

Thanks Ian.

I got to say that I'm relatively stupid about computers and the net, so i
appreciate the knowledge.

You live in fucking London, man I wish I could be there for awhile. I bet
you talk funny, they have the best accent over there.

Thanks Ian.

No probs =)

Incase you're not aware then, my despise of veryslime was completed the
moment the introduced that shitefinder site implementation, where _all_
..com and .net domains resolved, whether _really_ taken or not. If they
weren't, they dumped you on their shitefinder page which was just
"obfuscated" advertising links (used really poor mouseovers to change the
statusbar text in the browser if permitted, worst part was, they forgot to
prepend the text in the statusbar with 'http://' (which always happens
with real links) which sparked immediate investigation. Upon digging
deeper, each of the links was bound with Javascript with loads of tracking
code and other crap).

The worst impact of this however, was for sysadmins as it made our lives
much harder to handle spam on mailservers, plus from a coder's PoV, the
likes of PHP's getmxrr() function would always return true. I use this
function as part of my e-mail address validation for forms (if the
submitted address doesn't have a valid MX record, don't accept it as a
valid address) alongside other tests.

You live in fucking London,

lol.. certainly do geezer =)

man I wish I could be there for awhile. I
bet you talk funny, they have the best accent over there.

Dunno about tal'in funny (I've talked like this for the past 28 years) but
London (and the rest of the UK) certain't ain't what it used to be. I'm on
me way out ASAP.. actually, over to where you are (well, MD anyway) =)

Ian

If you absolutely *must* use VeriSign then I'd contact tech support and ask
for PHP resources that you could learn from. I'm sure that somewhere on
their site they have that stuff. When I developed an ecomm site in
ColdFusion they were very helpful in pointing me to CF resources to
integrate with VeriSigh (there was even a custom tag that made it very easy.
There might be a module for PHP already written).

I would, for a number of reasons, advise you against using VeriSign. While
they are good at some things, payment processing is definately NOT one of
them. You will have more headaches than anything. The last major ecomm site
I did used VeriSign and we decided to research our options. We found a
company called GoEmerchant that provided a LOT of flexibility and everything
we wanted. You can visit their site to find out more
(http://www.goemerchant.com/). Right now, in fact, I'm developing a plugin
for OSCommerce to interface iwth GEM. It's a pretty nice gateway.

Just my $0.02,
Anthony

We have experience with the phflow pro functions. They do work
and it was not unusually more difficult than most other gateways are
to get working. Our environment is RedHat Linux, Apache 1.3.x,
PHP 4.3.x

To debug you've got to be able to see the PHP warnings/errors,
check your php.ini file to see where errors are logged. I'd also
recommend the following in an .htaccess file in your php test
area to turn on ALL browser messages:

..htaccess
--------
php_flag display_errors on
php_flag log_errors on
php_value error_reporting 2047

It can be done and with the above you should get the help
you need to solve the errors.

Hope this helps!
