Real-time credit card processing
is supported, as long as you have a merchant account with a real-time
processing company supported by this powerful online ecommerce software. It also supports Paypal
to accept payment for orders.
If you do not wish to process credit cards real-time, you would simply receive an E-mail
copy (PGP encrypted if you wish) of the credit card information provided on the secure server and the shopping cart order details.
Either way, you will be provided (either via the email from your real-time
processing company or the secure server feedback) with an order ID number.
You simply go to a password protected (you choose the user/pass info) URL
and match the order ID to see the full order details. This URL is provided
in the web hosting control panel shopping cart pages.
