The e-commerce.

What's step one for handling purchases?


Recommended Posts

I'm a newbie to running an online store. What is step one to handling people's money and/or credit card payments once they place an order via my site?


I would like to handle payments the most simplest and secure way. I imagine that I will need a staff member to handle the payments.

I'll give you the first 3 steps. :)


1) Decide what type of payments you want to recieve (PayPal, AMEX, MasterCard, Discover, Visa, Money Order, COD, etc)

2) Open merchant accounts, if necessary, to handle the proper credit card processing

3) Install the most current payment processing modules you can find for your desired medhots of payment. These modules will depend on who you choose for your payment processor (NoChex, PayPal, 2CheckOut, Authorize.net, Trustcommerce, etc).
