No gateway - just encrypted email

We have a bit of an issue in that our client is as technically backward as a lump of cheese, and doesn't want any automatic credit card processing. They want the submit button of the checkout to sent them the form details as encrypted email, just like their old site does.

I'm guessing this is possible by making a custom gateway module?

1. Am I right in this assumption?

2. Any tips or pointers about how to go about building this if so?

TIA

Best bet is to just use the CC module to gather the data w/o any gateway. Then copy/modify the admin invoice template (see the invoice documentation) to send the encrypted data as an admin checkout notification. Would that do the trick?

Well as it stands entering the checkout and filling out all the details returns an invalid credit card number warning. I think this may be some validation checking the number of characters input as i just bodged it with a string of random numbers to see what happens. There's no gateway on there at the moment so it can't be checking the actual card number.

By the CC module do you mean just having credit card payment enabled?

I'll take a look at the invoice stuff. Could I ask, at what stage does the data become encrypted? I would assume the checkout module does this on submission of the form?

Thanks

Yeah, I was referring to the credit module and enabling credit card payment at checkout. Note that Ubercart doesn't do any sort of data encryption itself. By default, the CC module will simply save the CC numbers. There is masking and data cleanup built into the code, but no encryption. You'll have to do that yourself.
