Obviously I'm not making myself clear....
To Votrehien: "You're argument is that because other companies have unsafe methods therefore you should have unsafe methods." Where the heck did I say that? I use a VERY safe method of fraud control by using Yahoo Merchant Stores where THE CREDIT CARD INFORMATION IS STORED AND ENCRYPTED ON THEIR SYSTEM - NOT MINE. Yahoo requires a login to the merchant control pages, and clicking on the "Orders" tab requires a SECOND SECURITY KEY to gain access to the orders page. An SSL encrypted page displays the order information, including the CC card number. YAHOO WILL ONLY GIVE ONE REGISTERED MERCHANT ACCOUNT HOLDER ACCESS TO THE ENCRYPTED ORDER PAGE.
To LifeinAsia: I don't write down CC numbers, I don't store any CC info, I have no other employees, especially disgruntled ones, who have access to my passwords and security keys. I don't take phone orders. I don't have to have the "resources to guarantee that" my computer or my LAN is free of viruses or spyware (although I do), because THERE IS NO CC INFO STORED ON MY COMPUTER OR MY LAN. If you hack into my computer you will see photos of my family, but you WON'T SEE ANY CC INFO.
I think you guys need to go to www.merchant911.org and read about fraudulent credit card prevention.
I've got a headache and don't wish to continue this disagreement in business practices. I simply asked if any other merchant out there has found an ecommerce hosting company that provides CC info on the backend, similar to the way Yahoo Merchant Solutions does.
