    Wow, long video but I finally got through it all. Of course, I’ve forgotten everything already:) I’ll have to try this live at some point but it’s good to know that I have this step by step I can follow along the way. Thanks again. I may mess around with it this weekend. We’ll see

    1. Hey David
      Yeah, sorry for the length. It’s the type of video that you watch and do everything alongside at the same time.

    Do these instructions work anywhere? I have a website already and I want to process credit cards online. How much of this will apply to me?

    1. Hi Loretta

      It depends on how you have your website setup and who your webhost is. Who is your webhost and what platform are you using? Does it support Authorize.net?

    Great tutorial Steve! I like how you did a time lapse to show how long it takes for the webhost to install SSL. Should be helpful to anyone looking to start their own shop.

  4. The tutorial is great! Very detailed and easy to comprehend. Although the video is quite long but it is definitely a good resource for this matter.

    The pricing is outdated. Go Daddy is now charging $69.99 per year for standard SSL.

    1. You can always find a coupon for much less. But you are right they have raised the default pricing.

    Hi Steve,

    Thank you for the informative videos. They have been very helpful.
    I am setting up a website (hosted by Bluehost, using OpenCart) in Taiwan. Do you have any advice or information regarding setting up credit card processing when the website is doing business internationally and has a business address that’s not in the USA?

    Thanks again.

  8. Steve, The information in your this video series is priceless! You make it seem so easy and rightly so. I’m setting up out of Dubai and Payment Gateways/Merchant Accounts are the biggest obstacle here.
    Thank you for sharing transparently & Good luck!


  9. can only americans use merchant plus? Im from NZ so don’t have a social security number etc

  10. I keep hearing the term PCI Compliant. Where does this fit in with open cart.

    Hi Steve,
    Great tutorial!

    If I will be using Bluehost, can I purchase dedicated IP from other providers like namecheap.com as well?

    Thank you so much!

    Thank you so much for this video – I love it!! And the link to set up a merchant account – it saved me TONS of time researching! I particularly love the $0 monthly fee for start-ups! But do you know if they will process from overseas? If not, do you have a recommendation for a company that does please? (I need to use Authorize.net.) Thanks so much for all you do!!

    Hi Steve!

    Great video as always! Just a quick question: I checked out merchant plus recently and found that the free option is no longer available. Can you recommend any other brands that still offers this same service for free?

    Thank you so much! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hey Steve!

    I live in Europe, but I have paid for and started my own LLC in Delaware. So I do have my EIN #. However I don’t have a bank account in the US.

    Is there any way I can accept Credit Cards without having a US Bank Account?
    If not, how difficult (or easy) is it to get a Bank Account in the US?

    I do have my European Paypal however.

    can you recommend another authorize.net that still offers a free start up program? Merchant Plus no longer shows that option.
