National Australia Bank Internet Merchant Options
We're in the process of setting up the payment options for a new online store we're building, mostly servicing Australian customers, but expect to see some International ones also.
We've already loaded about 300 products into the store, and will probably end up with close to 1000 products. Prices range from $5 to $5,000.
This is the first time we've had to deal with an online sales setup, so it's all very new to us.
We already have a National Australia Bank (NAB) merchant account and credit card processing unit for our physical store which has been operating for some years. We mostly do "face to face" selling, though some orders are taken via the phone and email.
Now we're moving to online selling using Zen Cart. We understand that we'll need to upgrade our NAB merchant facility to an Internet merchant account.
We're in the process of organising a permanent IP address and Comodo SSL certificate for our web site. Thus our payment transactions will be secure, plus more trusted by customers.
Now we have to figure out how to handle the online processing of credit card payments.
The NAB offer a service whereby customers are taken to a NAB web site to enter the payment details, and then would be transferred back to our web site. We'd prefer a solution whereby the customer stays on our web site for the entire transaction.
Our understanding is that there are Zen Cart based solutions that will let us do this. However, we believe we'll need to use a third-party payment gateway/authorisation provider for that to happen. Plus that this provider will have to be acceptable to the National Australia Bank (NAB). Have we got this correct?
Would anyone know just what Zen Cart payment modules and payment gateway provider options will work for our Australian online shop? Which would you recommend, and why?
Your thoughts and opinions on this would be greatly appreciated.
Best Regards, Lloyd Borrett.
