    Feeless Merchant Accounts

    What are some good merchant account witout startup, gateway, or monthly fees? I have tried Merchantboss, but I really don't like how they host everything, they even appear to handle chargebacks, (YOUR) customer service, and returns themselves. I am really looking for something I can integrate into my shopping cart (OScommerce) that has no monthly (Or CHEAP, like $10 or below), gateway, monthly mins, and setup fees. Just processing fees.

    What are some good merchant services for my needs?

    Where are you located?

    There are going to be some fees involved because Visa charges something, and if companies do not charge anything, they do not stay in business too long. And most companies like to make money and stay in business

    Not to mention... often times "good merchant services" and "low or no fees" don't always necessary go hand in hand.

    It is important to keep in mind that solid technologies and great customer service doesn't come without a financial cost and the only way to make those costs sustainable is to have a business model that adequately covers them.

    What about the one in your sig? I don't see any major fees. does CDG charge extra for integrated scripts (It says it works in OSCommerce?) Also, do I HAVE to have an Authorize.net (Or any other gateways listed) account?

    Just the monthly statement/service fee of $10 I see. Everything else is per-transaction or per-batch. I've been a CDG customer since early 2004 now and am being updated to the Aces plan from that promo
