Just looking for some recommendations for the simplest way to handle
online credit card purchases with a merchant account. From searching
through some of the previous list messages, it looks like
trustcommerce.com and authorize.net come highly recommended, so I'm
just trying to figure out which one will be the easiest to integrate
with rails.. Cost isn't much of an issue, but time is, so the
faster/easier something is to implement and get working, the better
(I've got a tight deadline).
From what I can tell, trustcommerce has a ruby library
(http://www.trustcommerce.com/tclink.php) to interface with their API,
while authorize.net does not (however, it looks like there are third
party libraries such as ActiveMerchant or Ruby Payment which will
handle the integration).. I'm just wondering if anyone has had any
experience with either of these libraries or the trustcommerce ruby
integration and can recommend one over the other.
Also, does it make it any easier to use a merchant account provided by
the payment processing gateway company, rather than a separate
non-related merchant account provider?
