Call for contributors to create a COMMERCE WIKI PAGE

COMMUNITY NEEDS A COMMERCE HOWTO

Many people are asking about the topic of collecting credit card
payments and finding a provider. I need to do this for my business, so
I propose we make it as clear as possible for people to get started.

LOCATION

http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/HowToDoACommerceSite

WHAT IT COULD CONTAIN

The page could contain information and procedures to:

  • set up a merchant test account,
  • use the payment module
  • test the site
  • transition to a live production site
  • providing an example starter credit card collection form
  • providing a starter database schema and proper practice around
    handling credit card information
  • how to get an SSL certificate
  • anything else that would help more rails sites do commerce faster

CALL TO CONTRIBUTE

Please contribute if you know something… the page looks very sketchy
right now. I will add to it at the pace I develop my site, but I have
a sneaky suspicion that lots of you know how to do this already.

Cheers,
Jay
