I posted this question last week and nobody replied. I really need some help here. I need a few recommendations for reliable e-commerce providers.

Thanks,
Snark

IMO, the best way to do it is to find a reliable host who accomodates SSL and Perl, and then set up your own ecommerce system. You've got more room for customization that way than if you go with a company that hands you a pre-installed "ecommerce solution" with your hosting account.

You'll also get a better deal on hosting, because the account will be cheaper per month, and buying/installing the shopping cart script will be a one-time expense. (But make sure to get a shopping cart with a web-based adminitrative system if you're not comfortable tinkering around on your server!)

Thanks -- we've already got a complete storefront set up, hosted, etc. The problem is the customer is quitting the current e-commerce provider (i.e. credit card transaction service) due to unresolved disputes. I need to help them find someone else to take over.

Thanks,

ah - you're looking for a new payment gateway.

I'd look at Verisign's PayFlow link system. I recently set it up for a client and it's pretty smooth. You pay a bit more than at other places but I like it for peace of mind.

I've heard good things about ProPay (don't need your own merchant account)...

Or do you have a merchant account already, and just need an internet payment gateway? I've set up AuthorizeNet before, and it wasn't bad at all. The office actually switched to running ALL their CC transactions through the web interface...

Authorize.net has been good for me.
