Processing off line.

We would like to start processing the orders off-line. We want to get the orders and once per day or more depending upon how busy.

So I want the form to send the CC info via email or stored on the database. Once the order is approved, then process it.

Is that possible?

Where can I find a consultant or programmer capable of working with webassist stuff?

Email is a very insecure form of communication. You should never send Credit Card information in an email, it is actually illegal.

Storing Credit Card information in a database is also pretty sticky business. to be able to do so legally, you will have to get your site up to PCI compliance:

I have seen tons of sellers collect information and process off-line, are they doing it wrong?

I would prefer to do it manually if at all possible...

Wait!!!

So we have to get certified by that company?

Is PowerStore complient from the get go or are there things we need to do?

PCI Compliance is more about the server that PowerStore will be run on. The database server and the web server need to be PCI compliant to ensure the safety of customers credit card information.


Processing credit card information off line *can be done* but you will need to make sure your system meets the industry requirements if you are going to do it.

those others that you refer to that are processing payments offline would have to go through the same processing of verifying that their system is up to the industry standards.

Now this became a nightmare.

Ok, so PowerStore does not have to be compliant but the servers need to be?

Does using paypal vs authorized.net make a difference?

When used with a payment gateway and a Secure Server using an SSL Certificate, power store will securely pass the credit card information to the payment gateway.

There is not much difference using Paypal or Authorize.net.

Got it, so there is no information stored by ME(PowerStore) that could increase my liability.

It may be a good idea to have a topic on that on the forum.

the off-line thing was me being cheap.

Heck no more, I read some of the liabilities and fines. I'll get the authorized.net account.

Do I need to get it from Authorize.Net or can I get it from one of their vendors who is already our vendor?

You should be able to get it from one of the Authorize.net vendors. Just make sure the account supports Authorize.net AIM method.
