ColdFusion eCommerce

In 2003 Binary Minds completed the it’s first ColdFusion based ecommerce project: Schott NYC online store. Since then we created numerous ecommerce websites and took over many existing  projects for clients who needed an IT partner that would help them grow. 

Below is a list of the most common ecommerce solutions we implemented in the past.

Credit Card Payments – Successfully integrated popular gateways such as PayPal Payflow Pro, PayPal Payments Pro, PayPal Express Checkout, PayPal Direct Payments,, Plugnpay, Click2pay, Yourpay, Google Checkout, or CardServices International handling all transactions types (e.g. Sale, Pre-Auth, Post-Auth, Credit). Implementation of security features such as CVV2 verification, AVS, or IP to geographic location conversion to prevent online fraud.

Aside from these technical details, the one feature our clients value most is the fact, that we design e-commerce sites with the end user in mind. As a consequence, our highly usable interfaces greatly improve online conversion and result in more sales.
