Looking for a CC processor for Vacation rental business. Not looking to be grouped under lodging with higher rates.

Not knowing what platform your website is on makes it difficult to find the best solution.

You need to know that you need to be PCI compliant if you are planning on processing the credit cards yourself.

A good default 3rd party processing service is Authorize.net.

IMHO - I feel small businesses benefit the most from just using a service like Paypal on top of a 3rd party processor.

Paypal gives a level of comfort in the fact that the customer is not giving their credit card info to an unknown store (even if it is encrypted with SSL, PCI compliant... yada, yada, yada... the customer does not understand all of this) they are giving it to a known payment processor.

Hope this helps,

Right now I use First Data, but they are charging me to much.

I will never use paypal I did in the past
One day they just closed my account and held my money for 6 months.
