Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
I do know that you can be prepared to pay a higher comission for intangibles like software, etc. because of the high occurances of chargebacks. As opposed to CCNow which only deals with seling of goods, whose comission is 9% per transaction.
I want to accept credit card payment on a couple of my sites. Can anyone recommend the easiest, quickest way to get this going?
I don't want a Paypal/Propay type arrangement where the user overtly has to go elsewhere to set him/herself up... just a clean 'enter your card details here' interface (I would think on the host site but via my tracking code... or whatever the technology actually is).
I don't mind the % on the transactions being a little over the odds, but I want it to be easy and quick (I just can't stand hassle and want to get on with my stuff). Oh yes, I don't want to pay anyone a stack up front.
My customers will be usually corporates (which is why it must look reasonably OK) who I currently service via banks drafts, etc.
Try CCbill.com they are good and I think you can even get for instance a pulldown menu that will allow the user to pick the amount they want to spend. Call them they are very helpful.
On to a few other things. Ibill.com has been up and down for 3 weeks. Sometimes you get the CC page and sometimes not.
Verez..... I never liked them as they did too much on their servers and alot of people hate to go and make a purchase from another site and never be able to get back to the site they bought from.... Very hard to do with verez.
Paypal.... We are not friends at all. they want too much info. want to spend over $500 in a month and they want your lifes history. I called them about this and they tell me that it is to stop fraud. I say get a scrubing script.
Well this is my 2 cents...
"May all your clicks be sales"
ProPay will also implement a "Buy Now" feature which will give it the cart features that it currently lacks. Last I heard, $5/month for 100 items, but first 10 free.
If you want to see Mal's cart in action, please go to my web-site (see profile) and take a look!
a) PayPal... totally useless for cutomers outside USA, who have to complete a
massive 'joining' form before paying.
b) CCnow.... don't allow software to be sold (via download and activation key)!
c) ProPay... USA only
d) Worldpay... want hundreds of pounds up front.
This is all very disappointing, and I'm getting sick of searching and reading small print.
It's not that I'm too
worried about the commission rate (I can live with up to 10%!) but I want it
EASY and QUICK to set up and use.... and I want to use it to sell software... internationally.
Why is this so hard?
Any more ideas?
Why not make a payment page for each new project and just put a new button on there with the price of that project on it? Then the prospect can just head to that page and click the button when you ask them to (hopefully ;))
