Thank you for your clarification. Here goes with what I've been able
to discover for you.
In India by far the most useful site I found was CC Avenue at:
"CCAvenue is one of India's largest e-commerce solutions provider and
e-enabled hundreds Of Indian Websites. "
They claim "... All you pay is a one-time set up fee and Transaction
Discount rate on each transaction. There are absolutely no hidden
costs with CCAvenue. Here you have no need for elaborate software,
large databases and expensive processing capabilities at your end. "
Note prices are of course quoted in Rupees.
There is a 5% sales commission, a R20,000 Premium Set-up fee or a
R5000.00 Ecopnomy set-up fee, and a gateway annual rent of R2,400,

They say: accounts & payment gateways

They do not seem to have their prices posted on their site.

For Hungary, the Budapest Business Journal
has some general information, but I could not find an international
ecommerce provider such as you are looking for.
As for worldwide solutions such as Worldpay, ccnow and 2checkout, (as
I posted in an answer to boardy-ga some time ago,) I investigated a
number of these for my own company last year and finally came down to
two third party processor services, both based in the USA, whose costs
seemed reasonable. I then emailed a number of their overseas merchants
to see how happy they were with the service, and both showed up well.
They essentially act as your online retailer, which means problems
with fraudulent credit card use are their problems, not yours.
for information on the problems for online merchants.)
These provider's fees are not additional to any merchant card fee. We
have our own merchant account for local sales but use them for
overseas sales. Your prices displayed in US$ appear on the client's
account charged in US$. The conversion only comes in when the provider
We eventually went with CCNow.
They offer a shopping cart which is very simple to set up, they claim
to promote your site, and you have a lot of control over where and
when your money will be sent. The arrangement with them can be
terminated at any time - there is no contract length. They have a
monthly fee of US $11.95 which is for inclusion in their monthly
Promotional Programme: "Your Web site will be found in the search
results of over 125 of the top search engines including America Online
and Microsoft Network." I have to say looking at my stat log files I
cannot see any evidence of our being visited by search engines other
than those I have myself submitted to, but there may be overlaps.
Their other charges for non-US clients are: "Monthly Sales Volume
Retail Margin $0.00-$100.00 NONE $100.01 and above 11% of your total
sales in excess of $100.00 "
Note that: " During the initial 30 day trial period you will not be
charged a $9.95 monthly promotional fee ($11.95 monthly promotional
fee for International clients). You will be charged a flat 9% retail
margin (11% retail margin for International clients) on each sale made
through CCNow. "
However CCNow pays you interest at the rate of 1.5% APR on funds
sitting in your account. We felt their charges were more or less
offset by the GST free sales, and they seem very professional. Have a
look at their very strict returns policy, however, and see if that
They do not accept "adult" sites and deal only in "tangible"
merchandise ie: "physical products that are shipped to the Online
Shopper's physical address". They state: "This policy helps CCNow to
maintain our low retail margin. Tangible merchandise incurs a much
lower rate of inquiries, disputes, and fraud than service-based sales
or electronically delivered products." They also do not allow sales of
such things as drugs, explosives, live animals and alcohol.
We were also impressed by
which charges a US$49 Merchant Account Setup Fee , then $0.45 per
Transaction plus 5.5% of Transaction Amount. There are no monthly
fees. They boast: "FREE Check Payment or Low Cost Wire to Non US Bank
Accounts FREE Shopping Cart! FREE Code For Your Site FREE Tech
They support recurring billing and do permit the sales of downloadable
products such as ebooks, music etc. Again there is no committment to a
term - you can leave them when you want. They accept cheques. They
have similar restrictions on the sale of animals, pornography, psychic
readings and firearms etc. but will provide information on how to sell
"hard to place products".

A comment from msjoanna-ga to boardy-ga outlines Paypal, which is
popular, but has attracted some criticism recently: Msjoanna said:
"Depending on the volume of business that you expect, one system that
might work for you is Paypal. They will process payments for you and
provide some merchant protection. They aren't the best solution for
high-volume businesses, but are an excellent and relatively
inexpensive (competitively priced) solution for small merchants.
Drawback: customers have to be members to send payments.
Benefit: membership in Paypal is free for consumers and there is a
