for PCI Compliance reasons it's actually best if you utilize a 3rd party payment processor so the burden of PCI Compliance isn't on you.

Sony's fiasco right now is a good inspiration to secure as much as you can and to avoid storing CC data on your server.

services that are recommended:
2checkout
authorize.net
paypal
google checkout

so I would consult them for APis and check out what they want.

Hi remixedcat.
The problem i have is that many people in my country like to see the verisign logo during a transaction and customers with e-shops want to include this option.
That's why i'm interested to find a tutorial for this.

You would need to see if the order pages have the logo on it or not. many of them display it and use it.

I have been on this site today too.It is an old post (2006) and the tutorial is using a cfx custom tag that is not used any more
In other forums i read that they are not using this tag but the cfhttp that is in coldfusion 8.(http://cf_payflowpro.riaforge.org/)
Well i have only some pieces of the "puzzle".

I can't understand if i have to use the Verisign Payflow Pro SDK file or not.
Here https://www.x.com/message/9687#9687 says it is not needed
This link (https://manager.verisign.com) from the Payflow Pro Developer¿s Guide  is not working.

Panos - To use payflowpro you need 4 things

1) a paypal account -
The easy part

2) a payment gateway processor
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Payment_gateway - you'll have to find one suitable for your country.

3) PCI compliance
determine which level you are (I'm guessing L4?) http://www.pcicomplianceguide.org/pcifaqs.php and find a verification service to perform vulnerability scans

4) the code
riaforge has a couple of prebuilt which may work for you http://www.riaforge.org/index.cfm?event=page.search#payflowpro (not used either as I wrote my own but I think they should work)

Note that a lot of sites still reference the old java cfx and other schemes which were abandoned in 2009 so as you found there's a lot of misleading info out there.

This is what i was looking for.
Before i close the question please a clarification.
What is the relationship-difference between verisign and paypal?
To use verisign do i need a paypal account too?

Keep in mind that PayFlow is one of the more expensive gateways, the Quantum is free and has a lot of features (storing credit card numbers for recurring billing, DialVerifiy, MaxMind GeoIP, VBV / MSC) at no extra charge.  The gateway itself is free and no transaction fees.  

It might be worth looking into to help save at least $60.00 a month
