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
