i think i have heard before about text charging on mobile phones. i am not sure how it works but this may only be a fraction of the paypal costs.
if i find anything i'll let you know.

I`m also interested in this - could someone name good solution for this job?

I checked the Paypal site and they actually charge 20p + 3.4% but this is still taking greater than 40% of a 50p download.

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.

Yes, that would be one solution. Does anyone know if this can be done in OSCommerce?

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!
