Hi,

Im managing a web project and in need of some advice. If there are any spanish web masters about if you have any local knowledge that you could pass on then please let me know.

Question:

I am being asked by the developer if i wish to connect our online reservation system to a gateway for real time processing or if I would like to do this offline .

The thing is I dont know whats best. If you go offline does this mean you end up having the credit card details stored somewhere and have to manually enter them into a terminal.

Im not sure of the intial volume via this system , so it comes down to value and hassle with a sprinking of security risk / responsibility .

What is your practical experience with both systems. I hope somebody has some advice for me that can help me make an informed decision.

Thanks
David
