comment Accepting money on a website as payment: when do I move past PayPal?
The intent was not to go directly to doing all the processing in-house, more to evaluate the spectrum of options available. There's a ton of gotchas, seems like, regulatory, accounting, security, customer experience, transnational -- it's a maze of factors.

comment Accepting money on a website as payment: when do I move past PayPal?
Yeah, I was wondering if there was a tool to help me estimate the different services out there and determine which one works best. And it's not so much fees, but I know I can use different payment gateways to take payments, but those come with other costs. It's not easy to make those comparisons because they have more overhead -- hidden costs and such.
