Can anyone recommend a service that we can use to accept the occasional credit card payment? We rarely get asked to accept payments by credit card so its hardly worth setting a permanent facility however it would be handy to have a way to take payments by credit card now and then.

Paypal? I think it costs 3% + 30c or something like that.

Thanks, that may work but I was looking at something like shopify but not sure what they are like or if there are better services out there.

I have just been through this exercise for work. We are processing 1-2 transaction a month.

With Amex we have signed up as a merchant directly with Amex.  We just submit a manual hand written voucher and send it through. Money is in our account the next day.

For Visa/Mastercard we have signed up with ANZ (we use them for banking) and use an automated phone service to do a manual transaction.  We haven't done this yet but will likely be doing it next month.

For a few transactions a month all online services were very expensive.

Thanks, we wouldnt even do 1 a month, more like 2 or 3 per year so will look at that option with our bank.

Also check out DPS.  http://www.paymentexpress.com/Products/Ecommerce/DPS_Hosted

e
dit: pricing from $50/month up to 100 transactions, setup fee $150.  But I'm pretty sure it will be cheaper than anything your bank can offer.

Paypal. Plus I'm pretty sure this exact question was asked in the past 2-4 weeks, a search may find a thread.

Yep as per the post above. I have been away for a month and only sporadic GeekZoning, otherwise I may have seen it.

Requires a merchant account from your bank, so not so much.  The added feeds of a merchant account literally double that (unless you're with Westpac, who bundle DPS Hosted with their merchant accounts for about $40 a month).
