Secure Credit Card Transactions

Secure Credit Card Transactions Can't Post

I need to have a web page that collects credit card details and sends them to the owner's site.

I've worked with passwords and have found the cc_validate program (from Matt's Archive).

But I don't understand the stuff about a secure server. How do you send info to asecure server? Or does your program run on a secure server?

Any ideas? Just point me in the right direction.

Typically, it just a matter of posting to a form that's on the secure server. You'll need to contact your web host to learn your secure url (if that service is included in your hosting package), and how to upload files to the secure server (if separate uploading is necessary).

If your going to analyze the information for verification purposes before sending it to a transaction server like to reduce the amount of cost incurred because of fraudulant entries. There are two ways to do it. The easy way is to allow them to submit the information and you test it, for valid cc number or valid exp date, ect, then print a "confirmation" form that actually posts to the secured server. The tough way, have all the necessary modules installed on your server to post to a secured server using LWP. This will require, pretty much, everything a server needs to operate as a secured server, including but not limited to, SSL encryption modules (such as openSSL or SSLeay), LWP (for perl posting to the server), RSA if your inside the united states. I recommend consulting with your system administrator on what you are capable of doing with the account/package that you have.
