How do I collect orders on my web site

The most common methods are using a simple online order form, or a shopping cart system with an order form. Once your customer completes your online order form the order can be delivered to you via email, saved to a text file or saved to a database file on your web site for you to retrieve. Upon receipt of your customer’s order you can submit their credit card and payment information to your merchant account provider and deliver your product or service.
