RDN Associates can design your website to sell product or simply collect payment at any time, from just about any place in the world.
Already Accept Plastic?
If you already accept credit cards, we can add a shopping cart to your website and link it to a transaction gateway. Funds are automatically transferred to your merchant bank less the associated processing fee. While leveraging your existing credit card processing capability, this approach does incur additional monthly costs independent of the volume of transactions processed and is usually associated with six or twelve month contracts. Alternatively, you can use a less costly but also less secure website form-
approach for ordering and payment.
Don't Accept Credit Cards Yet?
If you think that accepting credits is too cumbersome or expensive for your business, there are several respected all-inclusive payment processing companies. Firms like PayPal
and Google Checkout
accept multiple payment methods and currencies and require no minimum sign-up period. While charging no setup or periodic fees, the cost per transaction may be a bit greater than if you had your own Visa, or MasterCard or Amex account and it takes longer for the funds to be deposited to your bank account.
PayPal performs the role of merchant bank, payment gateway and shopping cart with NO monthly fees or monthly/annual commitments. Cost to use PayPal is $0.35 per transaction plus 2.9% of transaction total but declines with size of transaction.
PayPal accepts payment by VISA, MasterCard, Discover, American Expess and checking account transfer and is a widely trusted, secure partner. PayPal also converts payments made in Canadian Dollars, Japanese Yen, Euros and other currency. Jack-ofAllTrades.com
is one client who uses PayPal to accept payment for services.

Google Checkout is similar to PayPal but not yet as widely recognized. Transaction fees are $0.20 per transaction plus 2.0% of the transaction total value. Google checkout accepts payment by VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.

If you already accept VISA, Mastercard or other plastic, you can request that your customers send their credit card information to you (using a form on your website). Upon receipt of the e-mailed form, you process the data as though the customer were present for the transaction. While not as secure as PayPal and Google, this approach does work for clients who are already paying credit card processing fees. EXAMPLE: CD-4-Kids.com
