First you need an online merchant account to receive a payment with credit card. There are various merchant account you can open, the fee and service types are also vary. Here are some popular merchant account providers.

Once you have your merchant account setup you have to find what kind of integration you are looking for. Shopping Carts or actual online store, etc. Each merchant providers offer different method of integration and they give you instructions to how.
