Hello,
I am looking for e-commerce shopping cart at reasonable price and good quality. Right now i am using one company's shopping cart. I have to pay $9 every month. Using their shopping cart, when we get orders from clients in email, we cannot see credit card number. To see credit card number we have to go through cpanel. That's the way they have designed it. We want to get credit card number in email.

Any good shopping cart with above feature enabled in email do you know?

Please let me know.

Thank you,
angela

Remind me never to do business with your store!

Email is very insecure. A message may be received, stored, and resent by several servers before reaching its destination. In between, it's unencrypted data that may be easily read by any script kiddie with the time and inclination. Or any of the servers in between may be compromised and their message stores examined.

No reliable, professional service would ever send credit card numbers by email. Getting them through an HTTPS-protected web site is a safe alternative.

Another possiblity, I suppose, would be encrypted email. This could be secure, but it's not something that's used very often.
