We are currently in the process of switching to [url removed, login to view] as our merchant account provider. Unfortunitly, the way that ClientExec handles processing through [url removed, login to view] will not work for our business model. So, we need a programmer that can revise CE to meet our needs.
The [url removed, login to view] plug-in in CE is great for automating the bill-paying process. When a client signs up for hosting, their card is automatically charged for the first month of service and, at the end of each month, CE issues an invoice and pays that invoice with the customer's card on file.
Unfortunitly, we do not only sell hosting. The bulk of our business is in the sale of Internet-based recordkeeping products to various industries. Because of how the majority of the businesses that we deal with operate, we need CE to do the following:
1. We create an invoice in CE and e-mail that invoice through CE to the client.
2. The client logs in to CE, views the invoice and clicks on "Pay Invoice."
3. The client fills out a form with their credit card number, etc., and clicks "submit.
4. CE processes the payment with [url removed, login to view] and, if successful, marks the invoice paid and informs the customer.
This is the same procedure that is in place now in CE for paypal transactions--the customer has to log in after each month to manually pay their bill. Unfortunitly, with the move to [url removed, login to view], this ability is lost in CE.
I have contacted the developers about this. Their solution was to put in random credit card numbers for a client. Then, the client would log in, edit their profile to change their credit card numbers to real numbers, and then e-mail us. We would then authorize their card and charge their card for their invoice. Then, next month, the process would be repeated. This is an unacceptably complex solution.
We would hate to move away from CE as we have thousands of records in the program and doing so would be an insanely time-consuming task.
If you think that you can help with this, please PM, e-mail, or post a reply below to me with your experience with CE, the estimated time of completion for this project, and how much you would charge.
Thanks and take care...
