Hi Everyone:
I'm having trouble finding an appropriate online "checkout" service for my clients and hoping someone out there has some advice. My clients are service businesses (consultants, doctors, crafts-people, etc.) that primarily promote their services/expertise but often also want to sell 5-50 products on their site (e.g. a business coach that also sells a few books, cds and a fixed-price phone consultation.
I build a DB-driven admin to manage products, product��options, pricing��(and other website content) and a simple shopping cart so visitors can view and select products without the leaving the site.��
However, once the visitor selects their products and clicks "Proceed to Checkout" on the cart page, I want them to go to a PCI-compliant 3rd-party website/service that��collects billing info and handles the transaction processing including tax,��shipping, receipts, reports, etc.
In order to work for my clients, it needs to;
a) Be cleanly designed and brandable (e.g. custom header image, css, etc.)
b) Not require a 3rd-party account (e.g. Amazon Checkout, Google Payments)
c) Support a variety of shipping options including real-time quotes from UPS, Fedex, USPS (so no PayPal)
d) Support a variety of common gateways (ideally including
e) Be a hosted solution so it's can be more reliable and secure than my client's shared hosting plans allow (so no X-Cart, Zen-Cart, etc.)
f) Be PCI-compliant, reasonable mature, reliable, widely adopted, well-supported, etc.
The closest thing I've found is using Mals "Post Directly to Payments" ( but it doesn't seem to support real-time shipping quotes from UPS, Fedex, etc.
If you have an idea for me, I would be eternally grateful!
All Best,
