Initially we decided to go with Amazon FPS but later discovered they do not permit auctions. PayPal has too many issues. Now we want to go with Authorize.net as our gateway and maybe get a merchant account with Wells Fargo. But apparently VISA does not allow aggregation. What other option do we have? Can we process the payment ourselves? Can we redesign our business model? How do escrows work? Can they be of any help?
Because of the risks involved with the financial transactions, I would exhaust my efforts looking for a compatible service to use rather than try to process the payment myself.
You may try looking at non-profit website payment processors as they have to accommodate a wide variety of payment methods and fund raising business models, including auctions.
