Merchant Account, Payment Processing service?

Could anyone recommend a reliable Merchant Account / Payment Processing provider for a medium-sized website?

Or, alternatively, any 3rd Party Vendor that handles Merchant Account and payment processing himself?
(Something similar to RegSoft, , but for non-software products/services and, desirably, with good customization capabilities)?

Alternatively, I would be obliged if someone points me to a good source of information on this subject. It is so overhyped/overadvertised so that it is pretty difficult to find something reliable via Google web/usenet searches.

Thank you in advance.

Worldpay are reasonably good.

For software also try ShareIt,

From my experience I can tell you they are excellent! They are located in Germany.

You can also use SWREG,, which has very low fees and are a mature and serious US company.

I do business with products which are sold internationally. I have a Merchant Account at and I have to say that their very low fees and huge coverage (170 countries) made me choose them. Their transaction fees are from 1.99% to 2.99% plus 0.30. iKobo even have an IPN system that alerts me whenever a transaction is made on my commercial website. By the way IPN= Instant Payment Notification. They are great. Check them out, and return to this thread to share your findings.
