    First off, I'm under 18.

    I will have thousands of dollars going through whatever I decide to go with weekly, so I don't think a PP buy button is the best option, although I can't really think of anything else at the moment.

    Do you guys know of any way that I can put a button similar to a buy it now w/o having to enter into any contracts?

    Also - I don't really care if it's on site of off site.

    2checkout.com might work?

    Did, they didn't even send me a confirmation email until five hours later, and then it didn't even work when I clicked it.

    @meathead something like that or plimusish type of service might work... thanks

    A little yearly fee is better than recieving 10k in a week and having your account limited :)

    meathead and athlete, can you explain exactly what 2checkout is? I have heard of it, but it is on site integration, a merchant account, or something similar to e-junkie/plimus?

    Thanks

    It's a merchant account - but isnt too hard to get an account etc and the fees aren't too bad.

    I'd recommend it if you want to accept Paypal payments - you'll find quite a lot of people will end up using their credit cards anyway.

    I've used e-junkie too but found 2co to be better with higher volumes.

    Your own merchant account for ultimate control.

    Google Checkout has been very successful for me as well.

    Thanks for the info - I just looked at e-junkie and it looks a lot better IMO. My product will be very cheap, so the .45 cents and 5% would add up per sale. I think e-junkie makes sense right now so I'm going to go with them.
