OK. I've looked into the costs and benefits of certain things regarding a very small company wanting to sell perhaps 30 items on their website UK nationwide through a shopping cart.
I've considered the thing where you have all info emailed to you so you physically have to process all transactions on your till.
This website seems to sum them all up:
I've considered paypal, but a) it was in US dollars., b) i went to paypalsucks.com and got scared (!).
Certain ones, for example, Netbanx, offers the very thing I need, but, come one, £75 for one item? When the items sold would be perhaps to the value of a fiver three times a year!
Others, Worldpay, also seem to be legal con men.
What I need is:
A service that is like paypal, i.e. allows me to use their online business for a shopping cart service on their servers which i don't know emails an address with the shoping list order, that will let me sell in £UK, that will take their share of each transaction and no monthly or set up fees, and will directly take money out of my online customer's bank account and place this money in my own, or at least allows me to take it out of an online balance if the former thing isn't possible.
Is this too much to ask?
All of the sites i've come across are so damn hard to understand, i've ended up registering with three sites now only to find out they don't offer what I need.
Can someone offer me a recommendation as to where to go? Thanks!
