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

Shawn,
Everyone is trying to look out for your best interest here - humor  
aside.

 From your first email it is very obvious you don't understand what  
needs to happen when you are dealing with sensitive data. You simply  
can't just get credit cards, store them in a database, and send them  
around via a plain text email. If your customers found out this were  
happening, I would bet you wouldn't have many customers after that  
point.

The other sign that has me worried is:

" I would like just receive a simple
code that I can copy and paste to an html page
in frontpage on to my site."

So, the chances are - none of us who know how to professionally handle  
CC information would even touch this as a project with the way you  
want to go about it. It is too insecure and there are too many  
liabilities associated with doing something in the manner you described.

You need to research items related to encryption, merchant accounts  
and gateways (and auth codes - not storing entire CC information),  
SSL, etc.

This just isn't an easy task - I think that's why others are making  
light of your request.

Peace,
Nate
