About Custom Merchant

Custom Merchant is Adobe’s name for a program where they offer supplementary merchant services to users building e-commerce Web sites. These services, basically credit-card processing and related services, are provided by companies who have done some work to integrate well with GoLive’s authoring environment. In practice, this means that you still get to design and host your own site and maintain 100% control over it. But the most problematic links in the shopping cart and credit card processing chain are handled by someone else, and they’re handled transparently.

Credit-card processing is a crucial part of most commerce Web sites. Charging your customers is obviously critical to your business, but it also introduces a whole host of technical headaches that you’d rather do without. Custom Merchant can take those headaches away.
