gateway and merchant account,
urgent help needed

 3:51 pm on Dec 1, 2004 (gmt 0)

i have created my website in frontpage, i need to intergrate a shopping cart, payment gateway and merchant account,
everyone is charging so much i cant afford it, which is the cheapest way to have a shopping cart etc to accept online credit cards payments.

osCommerce for your cart and Paypal or NoChex (dependant on location) for payment processing.....

but you have to wait a week to receive payment from them, need one where payment is transfered quickly
how much is oscommerce and is it easy to intergrate with my frontpage before uploading my site

jonno54, even with a merchant account from your bank you will still have to wait around 5 working days for payment, that's just the nature of the beast I'm afraid.

If you're looking for something that will integrate into your existing site you might want to look at Mal's eCommerce, both Mal's and osCommerce are free AFAIK.

pk signed up for mals cart, now i havent got a clue how to put into my website in frontpage, i still have all the website in frontpage and havent uploaded yet onto the hosting site because i,m wanting all ready first.
god i know i was asking to much doing it myself. making the whole site in frontpage with links etc is now the easy part.

Mal's eCommerce has a user's help forum, so that's probably your best place to ask about integration questions and get the help you need.

Upload it. Assuming it's a new site-you need it up to integrate-and you don't have users yet. If you do have customers coming to the url already-put a message on the homepage indicating the changes taking place.

ok so before intergrating any shopping cart to the site i have to upload it is that right

Not absolutely necessary-but very helpful for testing and configuration. You can't know if they'll play well together until they're together. Also-you'll need it live to test.

which is the easiest and best to intergrate into frontpage website whilst its still in the frontpage files and not yet uploaded

Well the shopping cart is more than likely going to be ASP or PHP? And if your computer is not a server, you will not be able to see some of the include files, which most shopping carts use. Check with your host to see what they support & what they offer.

If you are in the United States & selling over $1,000 a month, you might want to consider a merchant account. Depending on your customers, you might also consider adding Paypal
