I'm returning to website admin after a few years away, so be gentle. . .


I'm looking after a community group's website and they're thinking of accepting new members & renewals on their website. I've looked around at payment gateways and like the look of SwipeHQ (yes, I know they crashed a year ago but they have been taken over by a pretty legit looking multinational). I was thinking of having a form with a Buy Now button plus a few form fields (eg name, number). Would this be doable without the need for a shopping cart, which is probably too complex for me? In my previous existence I used Paypal Buy Now buttons and found them pretty much OK. I'd use Paypal again but I was really annoyed by their trying to get users to join Paypal; I suspect they abandoned transactions because of this.

Have you considered eWay? I'd consider the security of Swipe to be about the same as leaving your credit card in a public library...

^ Thats a pretty big accusation, do you have a reason to insinuate they are insecure??

 

I have used them on occasion, for the first time in a year or so actually last week to take a payment over the phone.  Worked without issue, as it always has for me.  OP they do have Buy Now button functionality (under merchant tools), and a user must put in basic info when they make online payment.
