    e-Commerce

    Hi.

    Could anyone recommend any sites or other resources, etc to get started with developing e-Commerce sites.

    I already know PHP & databases, it's just the actual taking of payments (or card details) securely, that I'm interested in.

    I can't seem to find any decent resources online.

    Thanks,
    Eman.

    Should start with a base that does all this for you... www.oscommerce.com.

    AS to how to process payments, each processor, gateway and third party provider has their own methods and releases their own API.

    It sounds like he wants to learn how to build an e-commerce site, not use pre-built e-commerce software...

    Hmm.. I read it that he wanted to learn how to build eCommerce Websites, why reinvent the wheel everytime. Even so, the OSCommerce code is GPL so it will give a good background on how to build an ecommerce site as to what is needed, how things interact and the steps needed to build a complete package.

    I agree. You shouldn't reinvent the wheel, but sometimes it is difficult to understand the basics by looking at a fully-mature product which is very feature-rich.
