Excerpt of article text...

According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, total e-commerce sales in 2008 were $133.6 billion, an increase of 4.6% over 2007. During the same year, total retail sales decreased 0.6%. E-commerce sales in 2008 accounted for 3.3% of total sales. E-commerce sales have steadily increased every year, in total and as a percentage of total sales, since at least 2000.

In this article, I will show you how you can use Yuma to throw your hat into that e-commerce ring. I am not going to cover shopping cart implementations. You will find a simple shopping cart example in the "examples" directory of your Yuma download in a pair of files named WidgetCart.yuma and WidgetShop.yuma. The focus will instead be on the safe, secure processing of credit card payments through Yuma.

There's more to the process of accepting credit cards than writing code. You will need a merchant account with your bank, an account with a payment gateway service, and an SSL certificate.

Your bank can set up a merchant account for you, allowing you to accept your preferred credit cards and have net proceeds deposited into your account by a payment gateway. When you set up a merchant account, assuming you don't have a physical storefront, be sure to let your bank know that you will be processing only online transactions. That will save you the hassle, and additional expense, of having physical card-swiping terminals.
