out), Secure Internet Gateways (security), and customized websites for
- Their program accepts Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover
Card and another unknown card
- Assists with legal advice, trademark services, and helping you get
your business off the ground in terms of legal aspects.
- Also provide hosting

Over all I would have to say they seem to really care about ones
business and seem like they have quite the force behind them. As the
administrator for a major video website, I can tell you that these
guys know what their doing by the range of products and services they
can offer.
- Capable of handling memberships, content or goods.
- Their program supports Merchant, Worldpay, Paypal, CCBill*, and 2000Charge*

- Seem to be capable of more varieties of credit cards and also
capable of international sales.

LOW fees - 2.19%, $0.25 per transaction and a $19.95 monthly
statement/administration fee (These are very low rates for new
companies.  As your volume increases, lower rates can be negotiated).

$10 statement fee ($35 from Visa/MC and $19.95 from Authorizenet:
Totalling $54.95).

My Answer:

Honestly what I would do is, try chargetoday since they dont have a
set up fee (which seems more realistic and non scam like anyways) and
just use that, why make such a huge investment when you can waive it
with chargetoday. 100% with

Comparing  and in terms of
