Recommended Posts

I'm not sure I'm understanding your question...


No credit card processing is done by the OsCommerce scripts at all. You need to get yourself a 3rd party processor such as;





Secure Trading



then if necessary you add in the relevant contributions, and set them "active" in Admin. Then;


customer buys product

elects to pay by WorldPay

customer is taken off to WorldPay where (s)he pays by CC

(s)he should then be returned back to your site for a thank you message

WorldPay then email customer and you to let you know if authorised or declined.

You send goods - everyone happy.

Hopefully no chargeback.


Same sort of process for Paypal, Nochex etc etc


Sorry if thats a bit basic...only trying to help...
