    Hi all,

    I am an IT student, a newbie to ecommerce. I have gotten a part-time job (asp.net developer). And I have been asked to build an ecommerce website using ASP.NET (with C#). The website will help us to sell products and allow customers to make payment using DEBIT CARD. I am getting stuck with the payment using DEBIT CARD. I do not know where to start. Therefore, I really need all your recommendations, suggestions and advices about this problem. Can anyone give me some clues for this?

    - What do I need to process the payment using DEBIT CARD?

    - What is the recommended design for this kind of software?   

    I appreciate all your comments and your helps.

    Thanks all of you.

    Hey Quan,

    I would suggest taking a look at Authorize.net -- Here is a diagram on how web commerce works: http://www.authorize.net/resources/howitworksdiagram/

    Here is the section for developers - http://www.authorize.net/solutions/partnersolutions/

    Depending on your time constraints, it maybe more cost effective if you purchased a shopping cart and customized it to fit your needs.

    ASPdotnetstorefront is developed in ASP.net 2.0 and C# with source code available - http://www.aspdotnetstorefront.com/ 

    or Znode Storefront - http://www.znode.com/  same - asp.net 2.0 and C#

     I would recommened ASPdotnetstorefront though --

    Good luck

    Thanks for your helps.

    Now i have some ideas about what I have to do.

    According to suggestions above, I have searched and found that there are many payment gateways similar to Authorize.Net.

    Can I ask some more further questions about Payment Gateway as follow:

    - What is the real purpose of payment gateway? (or all it will do is to forward the transaction to the bank who issues debit cards)

    - What are basic components inside a payment gateway and how do they work?

    - Do you have any clue for me if I want to build a payment gateway like Authorize.net?

    Thank you. You are making me feel more interested in e-commerce now. Thanks again.

    Make sure you encrypt the customer's info(debit card number etc..)

    Look at this:
