You can only choose credit card if you get yourself a merchant account and integrate it with Soho. You'll also then need to get an SSL certificate.

There are many merchant accounts out there - and VodaHost has one available also.

Soholaunch is just responsible for the builder.

You need to get the dedicated IP and SSL from vodahost, but before you do that you will need to get a merchant account.

Depending on which country you are in this may be a formidable task. Voda Host has an account you can apply for if you are a U.S. Citizen. If not you will need to do some searches, which you can start with in your soho shopping cart by the gateway providers they have listed there.

You may also want to check on getting a paypal account which doesnt require any SSL. You will also want a BUSINESS checking account which is seperate from the MERCHANT account in most cases, to deposit funds from any sales you may have.
