Introduction to e-commerce and real-time credit card processing

We support e-commerce by supplying the platform architecture to enable e-commerce websites. Additionally, we have provided EasyStoreMaker for you to use and create a basic e-commerce store.


ecBuilder and Miva Merchant are website e-commerce utilities that we also provide. ecBuilder partners with InternetSecure , E-xact and WorldPay to provide third-party credit card transaction processing. Miva Merchant involves other processing gateways, such as CyberCash and Verisign as well as WorldPay. Our system will also support other e-commerce site building utilities. Note also that our servers have the E-xact Perl library installed to support E-xact's configuration software.


"Real-time credit card processing" means processing a credit card transaction as it happens. In an e-commerce environment, this is often accomplished by using a third party "transaction portal" like E-xact, InternetSecure or CyberCash. We support many transaction portals, including E-xact, InternetSecure, CyberCash and now WorldPay. You are free to explore the many options available. To set up a specific real time credit card processing system, refer to the portal's URL.
