We use authorize.net, so we don't store CC info!

The second you store a credit card number in your own database, you enter a whole new world. If you can get away with doing an XML post to a 3rd party, such as paymentech (which i use and would recommend), and let them handle the auth, the charge, and the settling on their systems, you're life will be far easier. -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
