|Ecommerce Website Development Brings More People To Your Business
If you have a business and you want to tell more people about
your business and what service you offer to the public or what
product you're selling. Putting your business on the Internet
today offers you the chance to reach millions of people everyday
and it's as easy as finding the right website host who will work
with you to get your web page up and running so you can start
making more money. Millions of people everyday move through the
internet to the merchant's web site. From there, a person
decides they want to purchase something, so they move to the
online transaction server gathers, saves, and encrypts all the
information the person gives. Once this person has placed his or
her order, the information moves through a private gateway to a
Processing Network, where the issuing and acquiring banks
complete or deny the transaction. This generally takes place in
no more than 5-7 seconds. There are many different payment

Getting an Internet Merchant Bank Account Web Hosting Obtaining
a Digital Certificate Finding a Provider of Online Transactions
Creating or Purchasing a Shopping Cart Software
You want to be able to accept credit cards over the internet;
you will have to apply to your bank for an Internet Merchant
Bank Account. This can be relatively easy or somewhat
depending on which country you live in and what bank you are
with. In the US , this is a fairly simple procedure. Many banks
offer Internet Merchant Accounts, and most Online Transaction
Providers will support them. See your bank for details. Since
the vast majority of Online Transaction Providers are located in
the US and are restricted in their ability to interact with
banks outside their own country, international merchants have
very little choice. An international merchant has to find a way
to get a US merchant account, embark on the equally difficult
task of finding a local Online Transaction Provider, or utilize
one of the few companies that services the international market.
Also, many banks outside the US have very restrictive policies
regarding internet accounts. Luckily, the situation is
improving, and most Online Transaction Providers will help you
with this if you get in touch with them.
In the ratings section, I have included information on which
providers give international service. Here are some additional
issues to keep in mind when you apply for a Merchant Bank
A US merchant account can take up to a month to come through.
If you already have a merchant bank account, you will probably
also need to upgrade it to an Internet account.
Ensure that your bank accepts Internet merchant accounts and has
credit card processors that can connect to FDC, Paymentech or
Your account must be able to handle Card Not Present
