Actually, the only SF files we are over-writing are the CSS files and a master template which allows us to have the "eCommerce" link at the top of the page. No other SF controls are over-written of extended nor are we using any SF tables. Thus, when you upgrade SF, all that needs to be changed is a few CSS files and the master template. Everything else is outside of SF.
As for upgrading, because we use the Telerik.Web.dll that is part of SF in the bin folder, our code is compiled to a release version of Sitefinity. However, if you have our full source license, then all you need to do is compile the project against the new version of the WebUI DLL in the upgraded version of SF. Because we work very closely with Sitefinity, we usually release our software the same day a Sitefinity upgrade is released, or a few days later.
As for PCI compliance, we are compliant but not certified. Meaning, if you were to signup for ScanAlert or Trust Wave etc...which does PCI compliancy testing, our software will pass no problem. PCI certification is a process that usually takes six to eight months to complete and is very costly as it involves 3rd party companies examining code, company policies etc... which we hope to have completed by Q2 of 2011.
We do support PayPal Express Checkout and Google Checkout for off-site check out, and we will be offering other payment solutions like Amazon etc.. that will be released very soon.
Please contact me directly if there is anything other questions or anything we can help out with.
thank you Dan!
