Ecommerce can be defined as "the buying and selling of goods and services via the Internet".
At its most basic level, an ecommerce store can be as simple as presenting products and/or services online and allowing customers to express their desire to purchase them through the use of downloadable, emailed, or online purchase forms. In most cases, when this level of ecommerce solution is employed, the transaction is completed and payment is arranged outside of the online environment.
The next level of an ecommerce solution allows customers to provide their credit card details during the purchase. The credit card details are then stored securely allowing the selling party to process the transaction and receive payment. Again, like the previous basic method, the transaction is often completed outside of the online environment.
At a higher level, an ecommerce store integrates with third party organisations to enable the processing of credit card payments to be performed in real-time. Monthly and per transaction fees are charged by the third party organisations that process these transactions.
Enlighten Hosting supports multiple real time Online Payment Processing methods and works with third party payment providers such as Payment Express (http://www.paymentexpress.com).
