I don't see why not. We work with Authorize.net at work, so I should be
able to talk to some people that integrate some of our software with it
and/or already know how to do it, as well as get ahold of any relevant
I mainly started working on this because I got limited "go" feedback and
no "don't go" feedback, so I just want to see if I should continue in
this direction or if you would rather go for the Wordpress-ization
method. I really, really don't like CMS systems, so I still vote for my
way, and so far this site I coded is smaller and more efficient than
what the current CMS created and it should be trivial to add sections or
make changes, plus we can keep track of changes via MTN.
