Hello There,
I am about to launch a shopping site with about 150 products. I dont expect good sales for 4 mnoths bcoz i wont b doing any offline marketing. So i need a merchant accoutn to accept credit cards. It doesnt matter if commission is high but i dont want any setup fees or any monthly statement fees. No application fees also
I dont have credit card as i m student of 19 so i cant sign up with paypal.
Any advices from you experts?
Thanking You

I have not found a free payment gateway. All charge a set up cost if you wnat customers to pay by Credit Card.

This is the current reality.

Hmm, that would make you one of the probably 3 U.S. 19 year olds without a credit card.

Are you sure you need a credit card to signup with PayPal? I thought they only required a bank account.

My guess is that if you are 19 and don't even have a credit card, it's going to be extremely difficult to get a merchant account.

However, look into Pro Pay. They only have a small annual fee (not monthly), but no setup fee.

I think you should still be able to sign up with Paypal - you account will just be limited
