Re: [webdesign-396] Looking to hire someone for a small project ....

80% of my day job is PCI compliance related this year, for a $3bn corporation (99% of transactions are covered under PCI here). It's a nightmare to say the least.

I would find a merchant who can handle the payment piece on their own, or will let you integrate it into your site without storing data on your web server - It's okay to take data, process it on the server and ship it off somewhere else as long as both sides of the transaction are encrypted - As soon as the data touches disk, or is sent out in the clear, then you have problems.

You could talk to your merchant and see what they recommend. In the past I worked with authorized.net, which was actually fairly good - I'm sure lots of others have probably used them also.

Shawn,

I don't think that David was joking around or trying to make your request a joke.  IMHO, he was trying to help.  If you're looking to retain information from your visitors, I and a lot of other people here can help - retaining customer demographics is my full time job.  But storing your customer's CC information isn't a good idea and leave you open to legal concerns at some point.

Shawn, maybe we need some more information.  What are you attempting to accomplish (the whole project, not just this little bit).

If you've changed your mind and are going to use scriptlance or guru.com, then disregard my message and I wish you the best of luck at reaching your goals.

I appreciate it David.  I just don't have
time for jokes or being made into a joke.  
I run a legitimate business and do not like 
outside sources having control over my customer
information.  If in the future I leave that 
merchant account and move to another.  I'd like
to take my customers (customers - it has 
taken me years to get) with me and not have
to start all over.  

Thanks for your information David, but I am 
sure there is a way to do it and still be 
in compliance.  The site earlytorise - manually
enters all of their credit card information.

Its being done, just not sure how .... yet.

I was being perfectly serious when I told you about
PCI compliance. If 
you're credit card processing environment is not
compliant, then you 
become liable for any misuse of that data, or
potentially get ditched by 
your merchant.

It's more complicated than capturing the data and
sending an e-mail.
