Don't know if this is the appropriate forum but I'm doing some research on credit card processing through my website.

What I want to know is, what is the concensus when coding for processing for a site?? In other words, how hard is it to design code to take credit cards for processing using "https:" pages. Or would it be a whole lot easier and worth the money to use a company like Verisign?? Thank you for the assist and please, whatever suggestions or comments is well appreciated.

To do it right (e.g. safe, secure, and reliable for the sake of your customers), you either need a team of a few very (very) experienced developers including at least one security expert, or you should just go with an established, trusted solution like Verisign (despite their merger with Network Solutions.. *sigh*). I, personally, would never trust myself to develop a good solution on my own (at least not until I've got my degree ;)), and definitely go with an established, trusted product.

To enable credit card transactions it is necessary to move on to a secured port 443 which shoul be using SSL.
This will help to encrypt all the data that is moved on the net.
Furhter you need to get a digital certificate for your site domain, eg mydomain.com from a CA(Certificate Authority) like verisgn, thwate, etc.
It is quite a task to perform :!: :o
