Re: [SLUG] E-Commerce...what do I need.
It appears that everybody has suggested the "shopping" bit - but you'll
find that you'll also need something to talk to the bank.. this is the
hard bit (as by your question, I'm assuming that you want realtime
transaction approval etc..)
In 99% of situations, you have to write bits of custom code using some
form of "middleware".. check out: www.aba.net.au for a start (as they have
a free SDK etc and reasonable merchant fees..) other names to look for are
Camtech and some other which I can't remember off the top of my head in
Quite simply, if you want a "manual" system - any Acme Shopping cart will
do - and email you (encrypted) card details etc which you later process
etc... but a "proper" one as per se, will indeed cost you time and money..
As Rick said... "call me.. call me Now.." ;)
