Looking for some guidance on creation of a webapp
  04-04-2019, 09:15 PM

We have a Web Application written in Ruby on Rails sitting on a server, it has a user management system which allows for the creation of both users an admins and is ready for us.

I am wondering how we can build a WordPress site that then connects to a payment authorization (Chase PaymenTech) and then goes over to the webapp, so I suppose their are three steps.

If person A is creating the Wordpress, and Person B created the WebApp, is a Person C needed for the Payment Authorization or can we just ask Person B to do it?

Thank you in advance everyone.

You should look into Active Merchant, derived from Shopify's API for multi-gateway payment processing. I'm not a Ruby geek, but I know python/unix and this looks really simple, like a well established library. Here's the Github Page, it looks to be actively maintained.

Google this
if you want to learn how to implement the stripe payment system on your own, although active merchant complies with it already.

Whatever you use, ensure it's currently PCI DSS compliant or you'll have processing issues/rejected API calls and likely get flagged for poor infosec.

I JUST dealt with this as part of a seed-to-smoke trace system I helped to implement for a large cannabis company with a blockchain backend. We had API issues until our web app dork got his act together and started properly implementing calls. Not really exactly what you're doing, but very close. And yes, it was a [email protected]#$ing nightmare to get done, but we were dealing with the state, you're not likely having to endure that.

Hey simplefool, thank you for the resources you put up. They were quite helpful. After doing research with my business partner we decided to go with Stripe, which it would appear provides everything in one package.

The way we now imagine it is that it goes from a buy button on the simple landing page wordpress, goes to Stripes payment processing page, after payment authroization forwards to the webapp which dynamically generates a password for the email address provided and sends them an email with it so they can return to pick up where they left off later. I hope this will work.

Thank you again and feel free to share any more insights as we are hungry for knowledge in the space of how this works.

Yeah, Stripe seems a simple solution. There's a reason shopping cart pages are a niche part of web design, until the payment gets tokenized I think you're on the hook for the infosec, not quite sure though, I haven't had that headache yet.

My only real advise, which IMO you don't appear to require, would be not to be stingy on your ssl cert, if it expires it may be a nightmare to get your checkout process white-listed again. So, for like testing purposes Lets Encrypt is fine I suppose, but once you're ready to go live I would pay for something that has some guarantee of renewing in a timely manner. It sounds to me like that's likely something you already have dialed in though, as it's kinda a no-brainer.
