    How to accept credit card payments.

    I am working on a website for a lawyer and she wants to be able to take credit card payments on her site. As of right now, she said she only has a squareup account.

    What would be the best way to incorporate the ability to accept payments on her site?

    If you want to take the easiest quickest approach paypal is one way to go.

    You generate the paypal button on the paypal website. Then you place it on your website. You can then have someone manually confirmed payments went in. If you want to take it a tad further you can setup IPN (instant payment notification) where paypal will connect to your server, authenticates itself and tell you that someone just paid succesfully (or not). Its all pretty easy and there is some source code out there.

    I hate Paypal so I can't recommend it, however Stripe is a great and simple merchant account for you to use. Here are some links to get you started:

    Simpler to say that you release allot of liability and problems by using a payment gateway as they have been established longer, are well known, have been properly secured and provide the client with a receipt.
