    I am trying to build a simple online order form collecting credit card details

    Asked by croucherbrewing on January 31, 2011 at 05:14 AM

    I want to create an online order form where people will choose from a 5-8 items + shipping. They will pay by providing their credit card details (Visa & mastercard) only, and I will then complete the credit card payment transaction via our merchant account (so not using Paypal, etc).


    A) Can I do this securely - is it just a case of using https?

    B) Is there any kind of pre-prepared template, or do I build the whole form from scratch?

    Thanks for your help,

    Nigel Gregory

    Yes, we have secure SSL forms and the form contents would be sent to you securely. However, they would not be kept encrypted on our servers. So, we do not recommend this approach. You would be doing it on your own risk. 

    Here are some additional suggestions to increase the security of your data:
