    Question OsCommerce newbie

    Hi everyone, before I launch headfirst into OsCommerce I was hoping somebody could help me out with a few questions:

    • I do not have (and do not want) a merchant bank account, so is there any way I can accept credit cards through OsCommerce without one? I have read a previous post and read I could use Paypal or Google Checkout, but I would rather my future customers both purchase and pay without leaving my website. Is this possible somehow? I'm in the UK if that makes any difference?
    And also...
    • In OsCommerce, is it possible to make OsCommerce state that a certain product is out of stock to my customers when it reaches a stock level of '0', and thus preventing any more purchases of that product. i.e: When publishing a new product I type in a stock level of, for example, '10'. Then each time one of that product is sold the stock level decreases by '1' until it reaches '0' and no more purchases can be made of that product. Is this possible as I do not want to be in a situation where I have received an order for a product I do not have?!
    And one more...
    • I want to purchase a template from VodaHostTemplates. Just wondering how the template got from vodahosttemplates and installed onto my oscommerce?
    Sorry for all the questions, but like I said, I want to know what I am doing before I start!

    Thanks in advance.

    If you do not have a merchant account then they will have to leave your site to make the purchase either at google or paypal. Thats part of the reason to have a merchant account which enables you to accept ON SITE payments. No way to do this without it legally. Besides even if you garnered the information without a processor and bank, you couldnt redeem the numbers and have money deposited to your personal account.

    Yes this is one of the features in using a Catalog Driven Cart.
