Chapter 27. Online Commerce > Payment Processing

Payment Processing

Now that Orange Whip Studios' storefront and shopping-cart mechanisms are in place, it is time to tackle the checkout process. While by no means difficult, this part generally takes the most time to get into place because you must make some decisions about how to accept and process the actual payments from your users.

Depending on the nature of your application, you might have no need for real-time payment processing. For instance, if your company operates by billing your customers at the end of each month, you probably just need to perform some type of query to determine the status of the user's account, rather than worrying about collecting a credit-card number and charging the card right when the user checks out.
