I want to sell information over the internet.  I want a user to go to my site and enter his credit card information.  As soon as he does that the transaction will be processed. If successful they will be forwarded to the ASP that contains the daily updated information.  Once they quit they must pay to get back on. Is this possible if so, how?  For example how can I prevent the site from being bookmarked and returned to.  I am using a third party ISP.  According to creditcards.com the only thing I can do is have a URL emailed to the user.  The obvious problem is I don't want to change the URL every day.  If what I asking for is not possible can someone offer an alternative. I can use frames so the URL is not visible. Thank you

You can use ASP sessions to timeout or end when the browser shuts down.

Basically assign the user a session when they are authorized and then use a close the session when they close the browser.  When the try to access the page again .. check for a valid session.

I thought the session object can only be used with Internet Explorer and not Netscape.  Alsohow do I let the web application know that a valid credit card transaction took place and foward them to the page.

the session object can be used with either because it is a server side implementation and is browser independent.

There are two ways to make the authorization check.

When your bank authorizes the payment you should be able to base on that redirect to success page or a failure page.

Your merhcant account provider would have to give you more info on that.
