8/23    I want to add credit card processing to my site. Any recommendations?
        Typing "credit card processing" in google returns a billion sites,
        but I'm looking for a few reputable places that are easy to set up
        and affordable. Thanks.
        \_ paypal!
           \_ this is not credit card processing... its payments to anyone
              with an email and requires the buyer to go through a lengthy
              account set-up process. I recently set something like this
              up using LinkPoint (parent company called "Card Services
              Internationl," I think). This is the company that Earthlink
              uses for its ecommerce stores. Its relatively cheap for a
              merchant account with them, and they have many simple API's
              to basic credit card transactions. I used their perl api.
              easy, good documentation.                 - rory
                \) thanks.
                   \_ ps - it probably would have been more helpful to
                      google for "merchant account" since this is really
                      what the companies are offering (with some
                      programmatic api, hopefully). if you google this,
             is the 8th result. good luck
        \_ From what I found, it seems like the basic cost of this is $20/mo.
           Does that sound right? If that's the case, I think I'm just better
           off getting webspace through a third party. I'll keep looking. tnx.
