The Question is:
Do you know of any OpenVMS installations that have implemented online payment
(credit card, electronic check) acceptance, and what approach they have taken ?
The Answer is :
There are many considerations, ranging from the details of the
payments to the shopping cart software to the particular web
server(s) involved. The specifics of the implementation and
the available options obviously do tend to vary by the local
requirements and particularly by the merchant electronic payment
connectivity and the particular software chosen.
There exists an open-source osCommerce store-front package,
for instance, that is based on PHP, Apache and MySQL, all of
which are available via OpenVMS Freeware. (The OpenVMS Wizard
is not immediately aware of an OpenVMS port, but has not looked
for one nor -- if the code has not already been ported -- at the
relative difficulty or the ease of porting the code.)
You will want to contact your HP reseller or HP representative for
assistance with this question, and (if needed) for assistance in
determining your specific requirements and developing your solution.
