advice on payment system
    #3131765 - 09/13/04 11:04 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I've been working on a website for a home business. I'm nearly done, I just gotta pay domain reg, server fees and internic fees. I'd like to set up the site so I can accept credit card payments. I've done a few searches and come up with quite a few merchant programs. Does anyone have personal experience in this that can reccomend a certain company, preferably with cheap rates etc...

merchant accounts cost alot...big hassle if you're just doing something small.
I recommend http://www.2checkout.com so you can avoid the merchant account stuff & accept payment quick/easy.

"2Checkout.com is the online distribution center for over 300,000 tangible and digital products and services. Web businesses (suppliers/vendors) agree to sell their goods and services to 2CO for immediate resale."

I'm not trying to sell my product for resale, I'd like to sell it myself and just accept credit card payments.

you do sell things yourself. Technically, 2CO is "selling" the product using their own merchant accounts - they take out a small percentage of the sale (like 3% or something - like ebay) and then credit you the money. They are like a gateway-merchant account while you handle all of the selling/shipping/customer service, etc.

Otherwise, just google "merchant account" & apply - then pay several hundred dollars and go purchase a credit card machine thing (or the proper software)....

Thanks, I misunderstood. I was reading a few articles that advised using Merchant accounts over Online payment services as more customers trust use of merchant accounts and I'm going after as many sales as I can get. I wasn't aware that 2CO would be using merchant accounts to sell the product. Thanks again bi0.

Another couple of options that we use at work are.

Mambo h??p://www.mamboserver.com/
osCommerce h??p://www.oscommerce.com/

(Both are open source)
osCommerce has a nice ammount of payment modules that might be handy for you.

You can also open up an account with your bank with the sole intention of accepting credit card payments.

This link has some good info on merchants
