Online Merchant Accounts & E-Commerce Steps
See our Getting Started page for more information on creating and uploading your site.
The basic requirement for any merchant account is that you must have a business checking account. Your business checking account does not have to be with the bank and/or organization providing your merchant account services.
For details (including pricing) of merchant accounts for U.S. clients, click here.
For non-U.S. clients, consider the merchant account services provided by WorldPay.
In addition, we recommend contacting your local bank and seeing what they have to offer (and what they recommend) in terms of online merchant account services.
If you have any questions about merchant accounts, please feel free to contact us at any time, and we will do our best to answer your questions.
4. Choose Your Payment Processing Method
Offline credit card processing is when a merchant uses the traditional method of obtaining authorization for the credit card transaction by calling it in. Offline processing can also be handled by using your web browser connected to the Internet and a third-party software (i.e., a Virtual Terminal).
Real-time credit card processing is when the authorization process is done online at the time of the purchase with code embedded into your html pages. Our merchant account program offers the ability to process credit card transactions either in real-time (at the very moment of sale) or offline (e.g., when the merchandise is ready to be shipped to the customer).
Promotion takes many forms, involves many steps, and never ends. It is probably the most important aspect of operating your web site.
The basic steps one should follow in promoting an online business involve registering the web site with all the major search engines, as well as with the specialty search engines and directories when and where appropriate.
Before registering with the search engines, however, you'll want to make sure to use the appropriate Meta tags in your html code to help increase the chances of your site being listed higher in the search engines.
An excellent (and free) newsletter on promoting via search engines is available from Web Position.
