    Hey guys,

    So I need help with setting up a payment gateway. The plan is to ask customers to enter their credit card info, let them test out my product for free, then charge them the next day if they say nothing.

    How do I do this?

    I hate to be "that guy" but you are going to have a difficult time pulling this off. You are going to need so many merchant accounts to load balance the charge backs I don't think the effort is going to be worth the reward.

    This is legitimate so long as the customer agrees to the trial and you provide a way for them to cancel. Although, 24 hours is a bit aggressive. What you're looking for is called deferred billing.

    Ain't that called scamming or such?

    No, if the customer agrees to sign up for a trial then be billed this is perfectly fine. No different then all of those infomercials. Try it for 90 days, if you don't love it, send it back!
