      E-Commerce & Merchant Accounts

E-Commerce involves the buying and selling of products and services over the internet. It requires instant order processing with credit card transactions. It is critical for Internet/mail/phone order merchants to accept credit cards online as it is the major payment option for any consumer purchase.

Creative Advertising and Consulting Merchant Accounts

With the great advances in technology, merchants can allow their customers to purchase goods with the click of a mouse or a simple phone call with our numerous payment solutions available.

Online credit card processing is slightly different than a physical brick and mortar storefront that utilizes a "swipe" card machine and processes transactions in person.

There are three ways to offer order/payment options via the internet:   

1) Online Form/E-mail Submit

Consumers fill out an online form and submit. The form is transferred via standard e-mail to you the business owner. The business owner can, 1) Call to ask for a credit card number over the phone and manually process with your regular brick and mortar merchant account, or 2) Have the consumer send you a check, when the check clears, then process and ship the order.  

2) PayPal© Account *

CAC adds links on your website that when the consumer submits an order, it will direct the consumer to the PayPal interface. PayPal transfers the payment from the consumers account into the business owners account. The business owner then processes and ships the order. CAC
