Quickbooks Non-Real Time Charge Card Processing

Quickbooks Non-Real Time Charge Card Processing

Hello:
How do you set up checkout so that no real time processor is required. We use Quickbooks for card processing and do not want to connect to a real time processor in eCart. Rather, we want to retrieve the sale from the DB and then enter it into QuickBooks for processing later. So, how do you disable real time processing?

Thanks,

Wayne G.

This is pretty simple to do but you should know that it is not an accepted standard to store credit card or other personal billing info directly in your db unencrypted. Depending on where you are this may even be illegal.

The idea with a checkout that places the order later like this would be to just have an insert occur from the checkout form and send the user to a thank you page of some type. You can then just query your db for the order details and process the order later. The rest of the checkout is not needed.

I would suggest that you do a call back to the user to gather the more sensitive details as these should not be stored in your db in such a way that you can pass them to your payment processing software or terminal.

Hi Eric:
Thank you for your reply. Many carts collect and encrypt the card info, without collecting the CSV code. They offer a setting that then deletes the sensitive info in a number of days that the admin sets in the admin manager. I did not mean to suggest to store the info un-encrypted. But there are a lot of QuickBooks users that seek the solution that my inquiry requested. Is there a way to set the encryption and then the timed deletion of the card info? Seems this would be a good feature to encorporate into Powerstore 2.

Best regards,

Wayne G.

I second this...

I'm just putting in to your company that I am trying to do this as well. This is perhaps so that you could add this feature to an upgrade of eCart. Many people do not want to go to a payment gateway - but want to use your shopping cart and admin software!

I think this is a great suggestion for a new feature of eCart and PowerStore. I have logged this feature request so that it can be evaluated by our products team.

Wonderful!!

Hi Eric:
I am happy to hear that you will consider this method for us QuickBooks users (and other delayed payment processors). If you want to really make it great I suggest a link that will create a coma delimeted file ready for import into QuickBooks. I believe you will find a lot of new eCart users once the QuickBooks community finds out about this.

Thanks for the extra suggestion, I have added the request for the info in a csv type file for integration with Quick books. There is no guarantee that this will make it into a final version but it is there for the products team to check out.

QuicBooks Processing

Hi Eric:
Again, thanks for the consideration. I see that Jason just answered the same thing in a different thread. The holy grail would be to use the QuickBooks API to connect to the QuickBooks database and run the whole thing from that DB, foregoing a DB being created just for the shopping cart. Manage one DB for the store and accounting. WOW! There is an ASP.NET cart like this, but other considerations prevent me from using it. I don't want to wish too big, so the CSV file for import would be fantastic. I hope other QuickBooks users will chime in to indicate their interest here........

Quickbooks

So am I understanding this correctly that ecart does not support Quickbooks? I have a couple of clients that want a shopping cart on their site which is the reason I purchased e cart. I hope I can use it.

If not, what would you suggest?
