Offline processing simply means
the transactions are authorized manually, after the customer has
entered in their payment information. If you are using a
software package like PC Authorize, MacAuthorize, IC Verify, PC
Charge or if you have a swipe terminal that allows you to
process web orders, you will be able to use InstantCart in
Many InstantCart users are just
starting out and they don't have a merchant account yet.
For these companies, InstantCart can be configured to accept
checks using CheckWriter
software available for a one-time fee.
To learn more about CheckWriter,
the software that allows you to take checks by phone, fax or
Internet and deposit the money into your bank the same day, with
no fees, click here.
If you have an existing
merchant account, check with your processor to be sure it is
Internet compliant. Some processors will not allow retail
stores and mail order / catalog order businesses to process
using their existing merchant account.
If you need to obtain an
Internet merchant account, we recommend Authorize.Net.
You can get set up for just $299, and start taking credit cards
within 5 days. Visit Merchant Account Central for details
