I want to operate a password protected subscription site. After their credit cards have been approved, customers would set up their own logon/password and then have immediate access to the site.
So far, I've been told that I have to have custom software to implement the interface with the credit auth gateway, and to allow the customer to set up their logon/pw.
Does anyone know of a software package or a service, besides Paypal, that does the whole job without me having to produce custom software?
I've dealt with both, and prefer CCBill.com, personally.
Automatic renewals, cancellations, support, and the secured online order page "cart" are supplied in full.
FYI, VISA recently inacted a provision where third party processors like CCBill and iBill must charge a hefty fee to offer VISA to its customers. You're looking at about an $800 investment, which may or may not be worth it, depending upon your customer base.
Stick with CCBill and you'll be fine.
you're right that at 14% or so they leave something to be desired - i doubt you could use them to handle actual product sales as they'd eat up a big margin of your profits. But for subscription sales (i.e. adult sites) almost all of the subscription fees is profit, so 14% of pure profit is still pure profit. Its also my understanding that affiliate programs of adult sites will give affiliates up to 50% of the subscription fees!... no wonder we have so much darn gosh doodly spam.
