    Well, 2checkout is not offering Merchant Accounts but is a 3rd party biller and as mentioned will not allow virtual games.

    Your should look into chronopay.

    He is already using PayPal. I'm not sure if this is allowed, but try MoneyBookers.

    Search for a Merchant Account

    You will have to do a search for a Merchant Account. We filled out a form (I don't remember the name of the place) But they sent our email inquiry to several merchant account companies. Within 24 hours we had about 6 diferent ones respond. After that we investigated each one before we responded.
    Our decision was to go with BankCardUsa. They can help you with creating a package that will suite particular business needs.

    Paypal has a virtual credit card terminal, where you basically get a credit card terminal online. It costs about I think $20 a month or something. It basically lets you type in their address, credit card info and everything. Works well.

    The new rate is $30/mo. https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/websc...t-fees-outside If you are going to get that, I would just recommend getting PayPal Website Payments Pro since it includes this in the package free of charge.

    You can also consider Authorize payment processor as a good alternative.

    From our experience, yes, Authorize.Net is one of the most popular payment gateways in USA (I believe they have rather low transaction fees). 2CO and PayPal are also popular.

    Can you do a simple 'buy now' button (e.g. for an ebook) with 2CO, just like you can with Paypal? I'm pretty happy with Paypal, but want an alternative method.

    That is what written on 2CO website:

    "... At its easiest you simply enter your products or services into our product database and add the buttons or links that are automatically created for you to your site. When buyers click on the links to pay, 2CO handles the sale in a secure environment, contracts with you as the supplier to fulfill the sale, and deposits payment for the sale into your account.
    Itís just that easy!"

    So you could contact 2CO directly to find out more information about the account creation with them.

    Also you can find list of other world-wide popular gateways here.

    You must open a merchant account at your bank to accept cc payments on your web site directly.

    I don't think 2CO can allow clients to make payments on your website, isn't it?

    Authorize.net isn't a payment processor, just a gateway. If you have Authorize.net you still need a merchant account to connect to it.

    Yep. Auth.net has vast network of resellers who offer merchant account along with Auth.net accounts. Moreover, very often you can get an Auth.net account for free if you take someone's merchant account service. We are approached by lots of such resellers regarding having them listed in our X-Cart Marketplace. I believe other shopping cart vendors experience the same.

    If you go with Authorize.net, Make sure you don't sign up for just a payment gateway. Over the last 2 weeks we have received a flood of inquiries all of the sudden by merchants who just have a gateway without a merchant account bundled.

    Also 95% of all merchant providers will waive the setup fee if you process through them.

    The Authorize.Net Payment Gateway can help you accept credit card and electronic check payments quickly and affordably.
