Even for the most sophisticated user, setting up a website payments system is daunting. It's time consuming and more often than not expensive.
One has to:
Purchase a high security Digital SSL Certificate;
Change the website's Terms and Conditions;
Meet with your banker and apply for a merchant account;
Engage a Payment Services Provider ("PSP") to process your transactions;
Purchase a Postcode Lookup system (if the charity doesn't have one) as it improves data integrity and makes for an easier shopping experience;
Select an appropriate shopping cart system; and,
Consider the security issues around the sale and return of products/services, the communication, privacy and data protection issues and many more.
