    I tried First Data but their support was very slow.

    Are you looking for an Online Merchant Account, an offline solution for a POS system where you need to swipe a card, or both?

    I like freecreditcardprocessing.com (uses Authorize.net)

    They've always been good to me and I do a lot of business with them every month.

    I use authorize.net. Simple, cheap, and effective. Only good for legit stuff. I don;t think they like it if you have a high cancel/complain rate.

    Basically looking to replicate the Biz model that the companies selling Teeth Whitening, Aciaberry, and Internet Biz Kit are using. That's where the customer thinks they are paying $x because they are to lazy or naive to read the Terms and Conditions which is in fact the contract, So they end up paying $xx per month. I think this method could be improved upon by charging a lower monthly rate that wouldn't be noticed or cause for alarm on the customers bank statement. Say $9.73 with a description of Qwikstop. On an upper middle class demographics statement this may go unaddressed for a long time. If you provided an easy method of unsubscribing you could probably avoid inquires/charge-backs with your merc/gateway. Since they're charging $100 a month in this method and with the prevalence of their marketing this must be a lucrative and proven biz model.

    Excellent support 24/hr phone support, fraud department, great when coupled with membership software (aMember) helps eliminate a lot of fraud orders.

    I can provide you one, but the business must be legitimate, or at least appear to be ;)
