Re: [NTB] HTML Codes for Online Ordering
- I use www.mals-e.com and it is a great tool. It is a secure site. You can
choose between credit cards, money orders, checks, or PayPal as payment
options for your clients. It is free but there is also another way you
could go that has more features but it costs very little. I use the free
service. It is really user friendly.
There is a little learning curve to setting it up but it is worth it.
Your website will have a "buy it" button (you can call it anything you want
like "sent it" or whatever you want). The program will send you an e-mail
notification when someone places an order and then you go to mals-e.com and
retreive your orders. You have to have a merchant account at your
local bank to accept credit cards. You just call them into your bank as a
phone order, the money is deposited into your bank instantly. Visa and
Mastercard charge a fee like 3% or something like that (can't remember) but
don't tell your bank that it is an online store or they will charge more. I
have had my account with my bank for 6 years now and they still think I have
a regular store front here in Capitan. They charge more for online stores
because they feel there is more risk. But even if you had a regular brick
and morter store, you take a chance when you take credit cards so I don't
understand why it is more of a risk. Anyway, I haven't had a problem yet in
6 years. No charge-backs or refusals. All my charges have gone through
You can set up an autoresponder in your account with mals-e.com to send
a thank you note to your customer and type in any message you want to.
If you want to see how it works from a customer's point of view, you can
send me a test order. You can use 0000-0000-0000-0000 and 00/00 for the
credit card number and exp date and it will come through to me and you will
receive my automated reply e-mail. If you want to do a "view source" on
my website to see how I have the code set up go ahead. I have several
different types of order pages -- different ways you can do it. Look on my
dulcimer pages and my Amazing Health pages for examples. There is a comment
box on my order forms so you can tell me it is a test order.
Visit all my websites!
