Credit card transactions?? Credit card transactions?? m52 (Programmer) (OP) 11 Aug 99 04:05 How using perl script can i implement a credit card transaction for a purchase? RE: Credit card transactions?? AndyBo (MIS) 11 Aug 99 05:56 Hey, why don't we just write it for you? Just kidding :-) Have a look around your local CPAN site. From what I recall, there are plenty of modules for checking CC numbers, etc. I don't know about actually processing the transactions, though. Guess you'd need to set up an account with a CC clearing house. There are some companies around that supply suites of perl scripts for doing CC transactions, and act as a broker for clearing CC transactions. Sorry, but I can't recall any at the moment. RE: Credit card transactions?? heidi (Programmer) 13 Aug 99 23:06 Are you talking about full processing - that is, checking for card validity? If so, you definitely need a credit card clearing house. If not, that is, the site owner will provide validation, then you would probably write the information to a file on the server. You are using security, aren't you? SSL? I hope you're not trying to solicit credit card or other personal info without it. In any case, there are free programs on the web for shopping, such as Matt's Script Archive (http://www.onlinebusiness.com/shops/_programming/Matts_Script_Archive.shtml). Some hosts provide them, also.
