Commercial use + payment gateway

Postby innocuous » Fri May 16, 2008 7:45 am

Just trying out webauction. Can it be used for commercial purposes? I mean how hacker safe is it? Plus will it be able to handle a large load of traffic incase the auction site kicks off well?

How do we integrate payment modules? I see no option for payments in webauction. We would like to accept paypal and credit cards.

Hi Innocuous,

Yes, the auction should be viable for a commercial site.
For busy sites it should be fine. If you have a large number of auctions all ending at the same time and the site is quite busy, one mod would be a good idea: it currently checks at the beginning of each request for any auctions that have "just" closed, and it processes the notification emails etc... If a whole bunch of auctions end at the same time and the site is busy, this can cause multiple emails to be sent. Moving this part out to a cron script would solve this problem (a simple fix).

As for payment gateways, I haven't developed any payment gateways for it. There is a payment module in the works for xataface that won't be ready for about 6 months which would be able to plug right into web auction. But for now, you'd have to develop that add-on custom for web auction (not hard for most PHP developers since there are libraries around for most payment gateways to make integration pretty simple).

Best regards

Nothing specifically for Web Auction that I know of.
