    Secure script ?

    Any suggestions for the cheapest way to incorporate credit card handling on a web site, such as free script, hosting sites that can offer reasonable support to the ignorant on a limited budget, etc.

    HTTPS / secure logins are a way of using SSL / TLS to do the logins. It is direct communication with the server that is encrypted and sent through a socket so it cannot be easily tracked. It can be done with any server side language.

    Though, in all honest, if you have to ask then handling credit card numbers is not something you should attempt right now. Use a different method for the time being (e.g., Paypal). Then learn all there is to learn about secure transactions.
    for(split(//,'))*))91:+9.*4:1A1+9,1))2*:..)))2*:31.-1)4131)1))2*:3)"'))
    {for(ord){$i+=$_&7;grep(vec($s,$i++,1)=1,1..($_>>3)-4);}}print"$s\n";

    I aggree. I do not know how to do automated billing, how does that work? I mean are you communicating with the credit card company's server via a socket (not ssl, but like the php sockets whatever they are called, or system.net.sockets in asp.net)? I am totally confused as to how that stuff runs.

    you actually don't communicate with the creditcard company, you communicate with your bank, who in turn handles all the credit.

    This may help:
    I have set up a number of sites using authorize.net.
    They charge a set up fee of $299.
    This is a simplistic flow:
    (1) You collect credit their credit card information on a secure server.
    (2) You post information to credit card gateway (authorize.net).
    (3) They return a good card or reject code.
    (4) You process order - send necessary emails etc.
    (5) Authorize.net transfers money on a timely basis to your merchant account.
    I would recommend you check with a number of credit card gateways.
    Another gateway is 2Checkout.com, I think it is $49.
