    This is a fine video for folks getting started but I would love to see a real in depth webinar on the subject. There are several parties involved in the process and I’m not clear on their roles. I also think it would be helpful to have a better understanding of the various charges that get levied when processing cards.

    I have been talking with Meagan Dollins about my trial site. Since I have been taking credit cards via credit card machine at shows, I already have a CC account. they told me that the gateway they use is Is that compatible with Volusion if I go with you. I currently am hosted thru a company that uses Shopsite Manager……not sure about that as I am on a 7 day trial with them; seems like support is off shore. Please let me know. Also, I have a logo that was designed for me when I started business and I would like it incorporated into my website. (I am a glass artist) Thanks!
