Music Downloads

Is there a good, low-cost payment solution available?

Apologies if this question has been asked before I don't often visit this particular forum.

I have a client who wants to sell music downloads online. He was going to use Paypal but the 30p (UK) transaction charge would be much too high when his downloads are only 50p to 70p each. Is there any low cost alternative payment processing system available for this?

i think i have heard before about text charging on mobile phones. i am not sure how it works but this may only be a fraction of the paypal costs.

if i find anything i'll let you know.

I checked the Paypal site and they actually charge 20p + 3.4% but this is still taking greater than 40% of a 50p download.

If you guys find a solution let me know too. I still have no low cost solution for my site. However as I sell locally only in my country, I normally take 100 % advance by local cheque and fix a minimum payment level.

Pretty much every site that I've seen that does 'micropayment' size amounts ask you to fill an account with a minimum of, say 5
Then they pay a transaction charge on the 5 rather than on lots of 0.70 charges and it works much better.

The problem is that the customer has to commit to spending 5, which may not work for you.

Yes, that would be one solution. Does anyone know if this can be done in OSCommerce?

Maybe you could adapt the credit class / gift vouchers mod?
The credit class being the appropriate section, I would think...
However, there may be a mod that does everything you need - I'm not sure as I've never needed one! Sorry!
