Unanswered: Payment method using credit cards, etc
I'm doing a registration and payment page.
When user click on the button Register, it will proceed to registration.asp.
User will have to select a payment method first (Radio Button). Payment methods accepted are cheque, paypal and credit cards.
1. If user select CHEQUE payment, the next page will be page with a link to download a PDF form. User will then print the form and send it to the owner address together with the cheque.
2. If user select CREDIT CARDS payment, the next page will be a registration form (Name, Identification Number, Mobile Number, Home Address, E-Mail Address, COnfirm E-mail Address, etc). When user click on the NEXT button, the next page is for the user to enter their Credit Card Number, etc.
3. If user select PAYPAL payment, the next page will be a registration form (Name, Identification Number, Mobile Number, Home Address, E-Mail Address, Confirm E-mail Address, etc). When user click on the NEXT button, the next page will be the paypal payment page.
Can anyone help me to do the above? Problem is, I've no experience in dealing with real payment methods. Will be glad and relief if someone could lend me a helping hand. If can, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or message here will do. =)
PS. I'm using MS Access db and doesn't have any problems doing a normal registration form without the real payment methods. Also I would like to include this -> after payment is made, user will have to activate their account by email.
well, as for receiving payment types I can give you a few suggestions.
Credit Card: There are plenty of sites that handle online processing. My company has used a few of them. Verisign is a company that comes to mind but they are pretty strick on the rules. Do some searching around and make sure you fully understand what you are getting into before signing anything. The ones I've used in the past usually receive the data by either an xml formated string or some other formated string. Every company I've worked for has given me great examples so don't worry about that. For validation before sending the data there is a formula called the "Mod 10" check(http://www.15seconds.com/issue/970101.htm). This will at the very least give you the knowledge that the number is formated correctly but will not tell you if its currently valid or not.
Checks: Checks you can also submit online but currently does not have a way to get instant information yet. From my experience, a bad check is return between 3 to 5 business days and a good check will be returned between 5 to 7 business days. Depending on how you set up your online account you may be able to draw from the customers savings account just like a checking account.
As for paypal I can't help you with that but I'm sure they have examples out there that can help you on your way.
If you have any specific questions about how to handle transactions with taking Credit Cards and cheques online please post them and I'll try to help you as much as I can
You can set what page on your site that PayPal is to go to if there was success and you can set another page for if there was a cancel. And these URLs CAN contain a query string such as http://www.mysite.com/mypage.asp?paypalstatus=success and of course could include a user ID or transaction ID or something too.
