How to accept Credit Cards?


Recommended Posts

This option collects the credit card information from the customer and stores it in the database. That is all. You have to go display the order in admin and see the CC info, then you use your existing merchant account to process the transaction.


There is an option in the module to send a "split credit card number e-mail". Use it. Set this to be your e-mail address. The module will then store the number in the database with the middle 8 digits Xed out, and send those 8 digits to you by e-mail. This makes sure that the whole number is not in one place, making it much more difficult for it to be stolen.


You may also want to look at includes/classes/cc_validation.php. This is used to detect the credit card type and verify the checksum. If there are card types you don't want to accept, replace the appropriate lines that look like this:


$this->cc_type = 'American Express';


return -1;
