Since this is a small business what service can they use (other than paypal) to accept money online with very little cost...
There are competitors of paypal. But no one sticks out as better than paypal.
It's usually better to go thru a site such as paypal, because they are all pre-built methods of collecting money.
And if we're talking about $100s of dollars per payment...
...my client would be SEVERELY pissed if paypal decided to lock the account, and prevent her from getting at her money.
If your client is an established business, taking payments from PayPal or some other canned, third-party payment provider will look pretty hokey to their customers. I suspect the customers would be a lot more likely to go to a payment page on the client's web site and enter their credit card information than to go through PayPal to make the same payment.
PayPal has its place, don't get me wrong. But in this case, I don't think it's the right solution.
