Apologies if this question has been asked before I don't often visit this particular forum.
I have a client who wants to sell music downloads online. He was going to use Paypal but the 30p (UK) transaction charge would be much too high when his downloads are only 50p to 70p each. Is there any low cost alternative payment processing system available for this?

If you guys find a solution let me know too. I still have no low cost solution for my site. However as I sell locally only in my country, I normally take 100 % advance by local cheque and fix a minimum payment level.
Pretty much every site that I've seen that does 'micropayment' size amounts ask you to fill an account with a minimum of, say £5 Then they pay a transaction charge on the £5 rather than on lots of £0.70 charges and it works much better.
The problem is that the customer has to commit to spending £5, which may not work for you.
Maybe you could adapt the credit class / gift vouchers mod? The credit class being the appropriate section, I would think... However, there may be a mod that does everything you need - I'm not sure as I've never needed one! Sorry!
