Which company do you use as a credit card processor ? I would like one that takes payment from all countries. I also need one that is not limited to US customers since I'm from Europe. And I do not want to fill out long forms when I sign up for the account. I do not want to wait for three months until they activate my account...
With respect to being a European business and wanting to accept credit cards, a third party processor - PS, 2CO, WorldPay, PayPal - might be your best option unless you can get a local bank to approve you for a true merchant account.
The gateway choice is really the "easy" part, once you have a merchant account established. Now, if you are using a 3PP, then they typically have a proprietary system that comes with their service.
