Two ways a merchant can integrate his web page with a payment gateway to sell products online. (1) Copy html code (with tags <form>, <input>, etc.) generated by the provider such as Authorize.Net and paste it in the store page html editor. (2) Install a plugin. For security reason, WordPress.COM decided to prohibit (1) the necessary html tags such as <form><input>, etc. and (2) installation of any plugin. This decision leaves merchants hanging, yes?
How do you get around this without having to hire an expensive expert? Can anyone constructively chime on this with a reasonable workaround?
Thanks in advance.
