Question about credit card payments & security
« on: May 30, 2008, 18:26:08 pm »
I'm trying to decide if VirtueMart is the right product for a project I am working on.  The client's needs are a bit odd; they need a fully-working, easily updateable shopping cart however they only want to capture payment info, not process it. There are many free 3rd party companies that offer the encryption/capture, however they do not offer robust cart solutions.

Anyone know if VirtueMart can simply accept/encrypt payment information and end the order process at that point? If so, is it secure? If not, does anyone have any other recommendations for use with Joomla or any other opensource product? Thanks!

VM can do this, please see this post:

however is is often against merchant agreements to do this.
Please add your VM and Joomla Version to your signature to make it easier to help you:

Most of my code posted in the forum is for VirtueMart 1.0  -  not for 1.1
