    Anyone know of an e-commerce tutorial. I am good with php and could easily build a shopping cart on my own what i really need to know is how to do the backend programming to process credit card information. I know services need to be set up with a mechant and also ssl security certificate needs to be purchased, I just wanted to know how hard the back end coding is to send the credit card information and if someone knew of a tutorial. I am working with a client that i have already built a static basic site for, although they want to add a few e-commece features. I have an associates degree in web design although my college never showed us who to set up an e-commerce site in any of my classes. It will be runing on a linux server and I really only know how to program in php for server-side languages.

    My opinion is that if you're not running something vastly huge (like you own a shipping company or something), just use an existing system, like paypal. Doing it yourself involves setting up merchant account with a bank (which can be dead expensive), preparing a secure form of communication (usually not only SSL), and lots more details just too hard to follow. Best just use a premade system.
    Note on code: If I give code, please note that it is simply sample code to demonstrate an effect. It is not meant to be used as-is; that is the programmer's job. I am not responsible to give you support or be held liable for anything that happens when using my code.
