    Can someone recommend a good third-party all-in-one payment processor?

    So, I'm building a website with an integrated storefront. The site's store is populated via the CMS, and the shopping cart is custom scripted. I have a secure server to handle the collection of CC info, if needed.

    What I need is a company to handle the payment processing and merchant account functions. I was looking at the typical PayPal solution, but the Pro version is $30/month and I would prefer something whose costs are either one-time or absorbed into the transaction.

    I've seen 2Checkout.com and ClickBank but I don't have any experience with either and I'm hesitant to let a company I know nothing about handle financial info.

    Can anyone offer any recommendations?

    The standard (which is free monthly) and pro paypal packages are basically the same, unless you want your customers to check out on your site.

    Sorry, I guess I should have clarified—customers need to check out on-site, which means either the Pro Paypal (@ $30/mo) or another all-in-one processing service.

    Have a look at Google Checkout

    From now through December 31, 2007, you can process Google Checkout transactions for free.
    When you use Google Checkout™ to process your sales, you will only be charged a low 1.5% + £0.15 per transaction. With Google Checkout, there are no monthly, setup or gateway service fees, and Google Checkout will not charge you to transfer funds from your Checkout account to your bank.

    Hi Mwnciau,

    I appreciate your help, but I am looking for a solution where customers can check out on-site (i.e., not leaving the site to enter credit card information on another, third-party site; rather, having that transaction happen behind the scenes).

    Look into http://authorize.net

    Its a module that Zen Cart uses and users don't need to leave the site.

    I've worked with them before, but always as a developer with a client who was already paying for them. Have you used them before, or have any idea what their pricing is? I have a support email out to them at the moment because they don't publish pricing on site.

    (grrrr…I hate "enterprise" companies that make you call to get pricing </rant>)

    I'm in the same boat you are. I worked with a client who was already paying for them. I was able to access the control panel though. It has a testing mode so you can try things out.
