For the past 10 years we have been fielding calls, and building relationships with web developers from across the country. We often speak to web developers who are somewhat new to eCommerce, and have a customer that would like to move away from their current “aggregator” solution and move towards a traditional payment gateway.  Additionally we work with a lot of developers who are savvy, but run into an issue such as the age old “prohibited category” or “black list” problem.

 

New to Ecommerce

If you are web developer new to eCommerce and need an “inside guy” to help you navigate the world of PCI compliance, FANF, AVS, chargebacks, API Log-in and Transaction keys, recurring billing etc, please feel free to contact us and we will happily talk the time to talk about your specific client and help you look like a hero. We can assist you with choosing a payment gateway such as Authorize.Net or NMI, and help you and your client integrate the credit card processing piece.  We are not developers and do not pretend to be, but we can pass along what we have learned over the years and help you avoid many of the mistakes that we have seen folks make. We are happy to help regardless of whether or not your client is or even could be our customer. We find that building relationships pays huge dividends as the years go on.

 

Experienced, but have a new issue

Just because you are building your 500th eCommerce site this week doesn’t mean you won’t bump into an issue. We regularly help out developers who are experienced and very good at what they do yet they have run into a hiccup setting up a client’s payment gateway.  One common issue we have run into a lot is when a developer sets up a client that is using a big national processor or aggregator and finds out at the last minute the product their client is selling is”high risk”, “black listed” or a “prohibited category“. A few examples are clients who may be in the firearms or shooting sports business, or in the vaping, or electronic cigarette business, another is the “biz op” or make money from home/MLM industry. These industries are prohibited by many big banks, processors, and payment gateways.  We can help your client find the payment data processing solution that works for them.

 

Call us first

A lot of the web developers we work with involve us early in the process so that we can help them lay out a plan. No one wants to be 50% of the way through an elaborate eCommerce site only to find out that the method of sales your client wants to employ is against the processors or the gateways rules, or that you need to switch carts so that the gateway that allows your clients product type can integrate! Email or call us, we mean it. We are happy to help! For developers who regularly work with eCommerce we also offer referral programs and affiliate payouts as well!
