The e-commerce.

Can you recommend a payment gateway provider?


Recommended Posts



Which payment gateway provider would you recommend?


1: I'm a UK based business.

2: Custom PC sales, so each order will generally be one item with high value.

3: Business bank account currently with LLoyds TSB Plc.

4: Needs to accept all major credit/debit cards.

5: Must NOT redirect the customer to a different site.

6: Must be able to style any additional pages to match site.

7: Must charge reasonable rates.

8: Must have a good reputation (and hopefully a recognisable brand).

9: Funds available from my account quickly.

10: Ideally, they store the CC info on their servers.

11: Terminal facilities in case I have to refund or add additional cost.


Thanks in advance

Please read this line: Do you want to find all the answers to your questions? click here. As for contribution database it's located here!

8 people out of 10 don't bother to read installation manuals. I can recommend: if you can't read the installation manual, don't bother to install any contribution yourself.

Before installing contribution or editing/updating/deleting any files, do the full backup, it will save to you & everyone here on the forum time to fix your issues.

Any issues with oscommerce, I am here to help you.

Cheers Alex, I'll check them out (no pun intended).


I've heard that PayPal can be a bit ruthless when it comes to disputes and that they will reverse the payment if the customer so much as raises an arm but won't do a thing for the retailer even if they are right. I've also heard of a lot of retailers having their PayPal account frozen and assets seized.

Because I don't have to sign up to any lengthy contracts I have decided to try PayPal, although this is just to test it for myself so I'm not ruling out other solutions.


I have signed up and been approved for PayPal Website Payment Pro. I have completed all of their requirements and I'm now at the point where you would normally start to upload files to test, and there's the rub.


There seems to be very little in the way of documentation about, so next question...


What contribution do I need?


Is it this one? http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/6244


or this one? http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/3647


or something else?



Thanks for any help, and apologies if this is old news but I wanted to ask before I spend time researching as there's no point in re-inventing the wheel.
