Re: PayPal as a payment choice for the LRH Gear Shop
before you start implementing the visa/mc payment, please go and talk with a bank counsellor authorized on mc/visa online payment, at any branch.
you will be surprised, how easely the bank release a transaction, just if the isa or mc number are match, and all the other info csv, name, address, etc are fake.
this is YOUR/OR THIRD PARTY COMPANY DUTTY TO MAKE SURE ARE REAL, and no stollen cards are used, or stollen id.
i'm a web designer and i did a few online websites, and NEVER COLLECT VISA OR PERSONAL SENSITIVE INFO in your server.
use verisign, or other acreditate third party online card company to store the info, just to avoid the lawsuit.
you have to setup all the extra filters when one transaction are accepted.
remember- bsnk release the money if hust the visa or mc numbers are right, and you have to add extra settings to your shopping cart - name, billing address and shippment address to be the same, csv, phone number, postal code...
this is the reason, why paypal is so popular and trusted...
they take care of all the extra secuity measurements.
please don't get me wrong... we have great people on this site, but you have to protect yourself from identity and card theaft.
