FaaS provides an easy way for web designers to integrate a native ecommerce form in a website. It is secure, it is fast, and designed to be easy.
While the more experienced developers and programmers may prefer to use PaaS services for their application, web designers not familiar with XML and web services should consider FaaS as the preferred method of utilizing Click & Pledge's services.
FaaS was designed with forms in mind. Forms are easy to create using any of the web authoring tools such as Dreamweaver and with FaaS ecommerce capabilities may easily be added in seconds.
To ecommerce enable a form take the following 3 steps:
- Name the form fields per FaaS naming convention [Learn more]
- Set the form action to POST
- Post the form to: https://faas.cloud.clickandpledge.com
It is that easy.
