What do I need to use Miva Merchant?
To set up Miva Merchant for your account, you must have all of the following:
  1. A unique IP
  2. A secure certificate
  3. A merchant account
  4. A second domain or subdomain, if you wish to run CGI scripts (Miva Merchant disables all CGI scripts residing on the same domain)
#1 comes with the Strictly Business plan. You'll need to purchase it separately from the 'billing'->'services' section of the web panel if you're on a lower plan.
#2 must be obtained through GeoTrust.com or other secure certificate retailer
#3 must be obtained through a Merchant Account Provider (see the related link, "What's a Merchant Account, and how do I get one?" in the Related Links column to the left of this window, for more information.)
#4 you can get from Dreamhost.
