Answer by stymiee
This isn’t a project you would write with a language like PHP. You would need to use a higher level language such as C or C++. Something compiled that will be much faster and more robust then PHP. You can power your web based front end with PHP (i.e. user control panel) but the backend stuff, including payment processing, will need to be in the higher level language. You’ll also need an enterprise level database as open source databases could never handle a task like this. Basically you’re looking at using an Oracle database which is expensive but also designed for this sort of thing.

Your first major issue will be PCI DSS compliance. This is the security practices dictated by the major credit card companies (Visa, MasterCard, Amex, Discover Card, JCB). It dictates how you will secure your data in terms of hardware, software, and practice. It is expensive to do and maintain. You will need to hire a company to certify your compliance on a regularly scheduled basis. Failing your certification can mean you get shut down.

Your second major issue will be getting certified by the processing networks. To be a successful payment gateway you must be certified on every processing platform and there are at least 16 of them that I can think of off of the top of my head. Being certified takes about two months for each. You can do them simultaneously but you would be looking at at least a year to be certified on all of them. And each one has a different API so you will need to code your payment gateway to work with all of them.

Your third major issue will be the data you store. Not only do you have the PCI DSS issues to deal with, but you will need to capture and store every transaction that runs through your system for years. That kind of data will require tons of storage space (that will also need to be secured).

Your fourth major issue will be processing volume. A gateway must be able to perform transactions in a second or less. This means your hardware solutions must be able to scale for heavy traffic especially over the holiday season. It will need to be able to handle hundreds of transactions per second (thousands if you become successful). That is a big reason why you’ll need to use a higher level language over PHP.

Your fifth major issue is that you will need to create a powerful yet easy to use API for web developers to use to connect to your payment gateway. They need to be able to do everything a credit card terminal can do through code. Documenting that should be fun! 😉

Minor issues include:

– Making sure you are ECI compliant (Electronic Commerce Indicator is required for all Internet transactions)

– Securing all data transfer (SSL)

– Offering a user control panel

If you want to be successful you will also need to have the following in place:

– Anti-fraud tools

– Have a reseller program in place

My estimations would say it would take 2 – 3 years to build your own payment gateway and get it up and running. That includes being PCI DSS certified, certified on every major processing platform, and to create your API. Costs would be around $ 250,000 as the developers you would need to write that kind of code will not be cheap plus you will have large infrastructure costs (hardware and software) just to run everything.

Best answer:

Answer by Charlotte
A payment gateway serves as your first line of defense against Internet fraud transactions on the Net. It secures your financial transactions away from the prying eyes of hackers. Though you will have to pay some corresponding fees for the service, the benefits far outweigh the cost. In other words, as an online shop owner, you can’t afford not to have payment gateway service. It’s a must for all online merchants.

Q&A: Is is legal to require payment by ACH?

Question by RMich: Is is legal to require payment by ACH?
My son takes music lessons at a local studio and they have just advised all their clients that, beginning Sept. 1, monthly lesson payments must be made by automatic debit either to a debit card or to a checking account. Can they do that? I mean, legally? It strikes me as a violation of consumer rights but I’m no lawyer. (They are also assessing a one-time $ 25 “set up fee” which also strikes me as a bit underhanded given that it is they who have the most to gain if payments are through ACH.)

How long does an ach payment take to clear your bank account?

Question by gdavison: How long does an ach payment take to clear your bank account?
I payed HSBC and their records showed $ 34.00 was taken out on 08/19/08 but my own bank has not shown the deduction yet. I am pretty sure HSBC got paid because their records show standard payment. I am thinking that my bank took $ 34.00 out of someone else account or they goofed and lost it. Local branch customer service said wait tell Monday.
Update. My bank told me to wait a couple of more days. I am tired of waiting. I did call HSBC, they actually have the money. So, I am wandering if the Federal Reserve lost it or my bank lost it.

Best answer:

Answer by AIDAN’S MOM
HSBC has processed the ACH on there end, you should see it come our of your account in a couple of days. I wouldn’t worry just yet, if it is not out by Monday I would call them and double check what account number they w/d the funds from.. just to verify.

Looking for a high risk payment processor (merchant account)?

Question by wicked_redhead3: Looking for a high risk payment processor (merchant account)?
I’m going to try and ask this question one last time. I am looking for a payment processor for a adult dating site. I have searched for weeks for one in the US and so far none that accept this type of business so I am now looking for payment processing companies in other countries. Please do not respond is you are doing a quick search and post a few names that show up. I have already done that. I am wanting to hear from people that use a company and can suggest a company that they use or have used with having no problems with them.

Best answer:

Answer by Robert
The only one that I know of is charge.com I have been recently looking for a high risk merchant payment gateway as well (though not for adult related industry) and aside from some offshore places, they were the only one that would take me on. I ended up forming another company that has absolutly nothing to do with my business and getting a merchant account for that company. Since my original company owns 51% of the new company, it is legal for me to use it to pull my payments.

Hope this helps.
