Taking Payments Online

What are you using? I've gone the PayPal route in the past, mainly because it's big and everywhere.

Since then they allow direct checkout with credit cards and it is a little better. Depending upon how your cart is set-up you may need to be concerned about security requirements.
I still would not use paypal because it is not an efficient use of my time.
However, if you go with a standard shopping cart, gateway and merchant account you have at least $50/month in expenses and security requirements depending upon how the cart is set up.

With that being said, I found it super complicated to implement.
I occasionally have issues with Paypal not directing people back to my site properly which is frustrating...but I don't know if that is a Paypal issue or a user issue.

So seamless integration is very important.
Also some people are so uncomfortable with the hop from one site to another (paypal) that you loose the transaction.
Also malware and stuff targets the hop URL so you can get your info hacked on transfer.
But the other side of this is doing it yourself, which is costly.

I use Stripe. As a developer, I love it! Their API is really easy and flexible. They charge 2.9% + 30 cents. And if you are collecting payments on behalf of others, they allow you to take a cut from the payment, which is the reason I went with them.

For the PayPal alternatives, are there any countries or credit cards that are not accepted?
