Hi Experts. I have created a fairly comprehensive php form to register users to an event. It validates than directs them to PayPal for payment. The registration info is than emailed to myself and the payment is processed through our PayPal account.
We want to get away from using PayPal and are looking for a way to take the customers Credit Card info and process it ourselves (we have offline means of doing this). Essentially we need a script to secure the credit card information. Is best to email the CC info or have it stored in a database? Is an SSL certificate enough security?
I am definitely open to third party options however I'd like to keep my form/code as is and simply secure it if possible. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.
