Is fogcreek using an existing online store package, or a home-grown system?  If existing package/service, what is it? Thanks!

Home grown (by me :).

Can you comment a little more on that?  I've been looking to designing a basic e-commerce site for a client.  I'm confident I can design a user friendly site, but am unfamiliar with some of the back-end details.

I've been told that if you write your own credit-card processing routines, you have to be certified by VISA, and that's difficult.  Were you certified, or did you use a third-party component?  (or is my info wrong)

Incidentally, as a user of the Fog Creek Shop, I liked the anti-warning on the double-clicking of the "Purchase" button.  Never could figure out why e-commerce software wasn't smart enough to avoid sending the credit card twice.  Very clever on your part.

Best, WILL
