A good Third Party Payment Processor?

Hello,

I am looking to accept credit cards online with my business Canadian Model Supply. I researched purchasing a merchant account but found the costs to be a little unsettling, especially for such a small business like mine. Third party payment processors are the other alternative. I was contemplating using paypay- their rates are very fair and it seems reasonably low hassle. I did a search on the Web and discovered many, many people's accounts were frozen for no reason at all. And my customers have to sign up with it to use it.

So far, my best bet seems to be www.propay.com - It has a $35 dollar set-up fee, seems very reliable and I have heard no complaints on it. But, even so, propay does have it's limits.

Does anyone on the zone (perhaps those who own a business also) know of a reasonably priced and reliable third party payment processor that is available in Canada?

BTW, please participate in the poll

Best Regards,

Paul Penney

I've been very happy with 2checkout.com. We use it for all of our sales.

In the past I had a merchant account. Its far easier to use a payment processor of some kind.

I've used PayPal for over 18 months, both as a buyer and seller. Never had any problems with it at all.

Dude:
I like Paypal, Been using it for 2 Years both Buying & Selling.
(Don't like that they charge service fee when you sell though)
