What's the difference? Doeesn't a cart thru ecommerce still take a cut like paypal? Can you use Zen Cart without SSL? GoDaddy seems to charge a lot for a merchant account with SSL? Confused???
Who do you recommend for payment gateways.....I'm using Zen Cart right now....It depends on what kind of cart you get, and other variables. But mainly, people choose to use a cart vs. paypal because paypal doesn't give as much as a professional presentation as a cart. If you are interested in charging credit cards, start looking for merchant accounts and the percentages visa, mastercard, and other cc's charge. They are also called payment gateways.
A shopping cart will handle inventory management, sales, coupons, options, order history, etc. etc. - PayPal won't do most of that.What's the difference?
No, only the merchant account (which might even be PayPal).Doeesn't a cart thru ecommerce still take a cut like paypal?
Yes, if you hand off the payment transaction to a secure site.Can you use Zen Cart without SSL?
