It really depends on how you handle your billing. For example, if you plan on using whmcs for your billing, you will have to check to see if they support your merchant solution.

It appears Payoneer offers payment processing, but it is quite expensive ($1-$2 per payment received) and it isn't an option in WHMCS: http://www.payoneer.com/PayoutsWebBased.aspx

You should first decide which billing software you are going to use and make sure it is going to work with your payment processor.

One of the better billing systems out there is WHMCS from a web hosting point of view. Is there a reason that you're going with the particular processing company? Have you shopped around, because $1-$2 is VERY HIGH for budget type hosting. Paying $1-$2 fee for a $5/month account can kill profits quickly. You'd be bettter going through PayPal, paying 5% of the sale and going that route!

don't forget google checkout also, which is on par with paypal in terms of fees but less scummy.

My understanding with Google Checkout was that you had to be a Google Member with money etc in their program. You couldn't just accept a credit card payment through Google Checkout (like with PayPal). Has that changed?

As far as PayPal being scummy - I haven't experienced it. They do have some higher rates if you're not processing a lot through them, but about 30% of our clients use PayPal and we've never had an issue.

Paypal isn't scummy. It is actually very reliable and works well to combat fraud.

Haven't had any problems yet with PayPal. Not to say it won't happen, but we've been doing this since 2001 with thousands of clients.

The main problem is that my country doesn't support paypal.
So i want to accept card with moneybookers. I have no idea about google checkout. How to acces that? About its limitation?
Thanks.

For billing, whmcs is prob the best solution. We use paypal and so far haven't had an issue with any of the orders. Even if your clients don't have paypal, they can still pay using their cc on paypal.

Doesn't PayPal let you do this?
