Post subject:  Buy things online

To cut to the chase, anyone know how to do this really simply without something like PayPal?

To break things down, here's what's going on:

Above ground pool site.

Obviously they'll only be purchasing one, so there's no need for a shopping cart or anything fancy.

I can work out how it all interlocks later, but basically I want this:

A page with the picture, info, yada yada on it. If they want it, they click the "buy" button. They enter their name, shipping address, etc, and credit card number.


First, I need to figure out how to validate credit cards.

Second, I need to know how to charge the credit card to some account. (This is the doozy.)

Third, I need to figure out how to calculate shipping by using a zipcode. (I'll need UPS/FedEx/Whoever's info for this. Hopefully it won't be much of a problem.)

That said, is there an easy(ish) way to do this? A nice class/program somewhere? Anything?

I think this is a job for an experienced programmer well-versed in the security issues of ecommerce.

well, I'm not a newb, but doing the cc part would be a challenge. I think I'm going to go with Zen Cart, although it'll need a lot of customization. ;)
