I can speak very highly of Authorize.net. My company offers several different shopping cart solutions, and Authorize.net is our gateway of choice. It is also the gateway we use for our own merchant processing. While I am not inclined to discuss the various shopping carts, as a gateway I do highly recommend Authorize.net. ________________________________ Shane Miller President Call Centers 24x7 116 West Eighth Street Port Angeles, WA 98362 T 360.452.4527 F 360.452.5399 http://www.callcenters24x7.com Helping Small Businesses Compete Globally -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of jono at charlestonwebsolutions.com Sent: Wednesday, November 16, 2005 8:12 AM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] Authorized.net & Shopping Carts Background Info: I have a new client who previously had a Web site where he sold photographs online. In my brief discussion with him, he told me that he used to use Authorized.net for his transaction, and that he wanted to continue to use it on the new site I build for him. I have never used Authroized.net, nor have I ever set up a shopping cart site before. I am pretty sure I can figure it out, or call my hosting company for tech support to get it set up. The cart itself is fairly simple. A link below each photo to add a photo to the cart for a set price, buy two photos and receive a lower price. Such as, buy one photo for $25; buy two for $45, etc. Question: Anyone have experience setting up a shopping cart through Authorized.net? I saw the SPAM mail here last week, by the way. Because I have not set up a cart before, I have a few questions: My host - Network 11 (very good by the way IMO) - offers the following carts through CPanel's "Fantastico" area: 1. CubeCart 2. OS Commerce 3. Zen Cart [?] Will Authorized.net work with/function through one of the carts above? [?] Any reason I should talk this guy out of using Authorized.net, and why? [?] I like the PayPal service, but the client is against it - probably b/c he has not seen how it has been update in the past year - any reason to/not to use PayPal? Again, I have never built/set up a shopping cart before, so any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. I am in the process of searching [theList]'s archives and I see there is an exhausting amount of ecommerce discussions. If someone can help me with some info that you found useful, that'd be great. Thanks a ton!
