The CyberCash Secure Payment System is a complete system for conducting financial transactions on the Internet. It accepts both credit card payments and cash/coin transactions. The CyberCash system is a great solution for any Web site that wants to accept electronic payment for goods or services.

CyberCash's CashRegister software offers three methods for authorizing consumer purchases and actually billing the consumer's credit card: online capturing, post-authorization capturing, and batch capturing. The processing method a merchant uses is dictated by how products are delivered to consumers. Merchants selling products or services that are being delivered online or that are guaranteed to ship the same day will use online capturing. On the other hand, because of mail order laws, merchants selling products that are shipped after the order is taken may choose post-authorization capturing or batch capturing.

They break down like this:
Getting Started
  1. Merchant Account: You need a credit card processor and/or merchant account who can accept CyberCash payments. CyberCash has been certified by leading credit card processors such as Global Payment Systems (MAPP/NDC), Visa/Vital, American Express, Wells Fargo Bank, Checkfree, First Data Corporation (Envoy, CES, NaBANCO and FDC), NOVA and more. If you already have a credit card processor, give them a call and ask if they are supporting CyberCash transactions. If your processor does not currently set up merchant credit card accounts for CyberCash, send email to to ask CyberCash to speak to them on your behalf.
    Otherwise, contact a CyberCash Partner Financial Institution about setting up an account with them.
