Merchant Web Server
The Merchant Web Server supports the customer's shopping and purchasing experiences. It may host its own Shopping Cart and link to the Web Link and Transaction Engine modules for payment processing.
Shopping Cart programs are used to collect customer purchase and product pricing information. The Shopping Cart program resides on the Merchant's web server and is typically provided by a third party or ISP. Online Commerce Suite also provides a hosted shopping cart solution (the Web Link) for those merchants who do not have a shopping cart or do not want to host their own cart. The Transaction Engine uses the information collected by the Shopping Cart to determine the amount for account debit authorizations.
The Merchant connects to the Online Merchant Center module through the Internet. Using this interface, the Merchant may collect transaction, accounting, and customer information reports.
