Open Family secures web donations

Several charities, such as Care Australia and UNICEF Australia, already offer online donations, but http://www.openfamily.com.au is the first in Australia to use QSI Payments' secure internet payments.

Ocean Internet's general manager, Chris Hawkes, said QSI Payments' solution safely routed credit card details to the Commonwealth Bank for processing. He said Open Family did not store or have access to benefactors' credit card details, thereby eliminating the risk of abuse through unauthorised access of its database.

QSI Payments' internet payments solution uses the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology and provides the required formatting, encryption and digital signing of Digital Orders to ensure that payments are securely received by banks from customers.

Open Family's site also features a news page, photo gallery, a chat room, and information and application forms for street workers and volunteers.

Ocean Internet started life as an internet service provider and has since expanded into provision of custom-designed business software and website solutions. Its clients include the Royal Australian Airforce, West End Association and The Guam Gaming Authority.

Open Family is an organisation of street workers that helps street children to tap into support services and programs that are available in the local area.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
