Hey All

I currently Run a website that caters for Lacrosse fans from around the globe . Im looking into one of the following areas to add to the site

( one possibility is to offer a Fantasy sports type section on the site for people to wager either in " free " or " for money " games , another solution is to provide an online store for retailing for Lacrosse videos , posters etc ).

My question here is im looking into solutions that allow me to accept Credit cards .

In terms of the fantasy sports solution it would class as "gaming" therefor some sites offering solutions for credit card acceptance wont touch it.

Therefor I would like to ask all you experienced webmasters here to recommend possible sites/services that would allow me to accept credit cards. I have yet to decide which of these solutions to add to my site therefor I would like credit card acceptance service recommendations for either gaming type sites or general store type sites" , also please say if you have used them .

Overall I would like the best possible solution for my members in that some credit card acceptance services charge alot % of transaction fee so would like to minimise this.

You would be hard-pressed to locate a solution that does not cost between $500-$2,000 in start-up / registration fees. It is because of the SIC code you would be using.

There are ways around it - not to be considered gambling, it all has to do with your TOS, etc. It depends on your business plan as well.

you first need to see exactly what your business plan dictates
