Default What is the best Merchant & Payment Gateway?

Hello,

Ive been using propay manually for an online merchant for our website. It does not have a payment gateway. We have to transfer funds manually. Anyway we want to upgrade to an automatic money transfer process. Can anyone give me some insight on what the best merchants and payment gateways are? Ive researched Authorize.net so far but it seems there are so many! I want to use what works best for X-Cart.

Thanks,
-Rich

The two that we use routinely are Authorize.net and CDGCommerce. I'm pretty sure that Qualiteam has affiliate links for these companies listed on their site. Ours are listed on our website under the Service tab for Merchant Accounts.

We've used many over the years, but by far these two excell above the rest (for our needs).

Same here. Have used both Authorized.net and CDGCommerce.
Both will work fine with X-Cart.

If you are going to want to accept credit card payments on your domain, and you want to avoid using X-Payments, then Authorize.net or Braintree plus the connector modules from BCSE are good options to consider:

The cost of X-Payments + cost of implementing X-Payments might be a factor in your decision.

Forget Braintree or be very careful of providing them with any documents before they say yes to your business category.

They gave us the run-around asking for numerous company documents and then at the last minute came back and said they rejected our business (why ask for confidential documents and then say "No"!)

The reason given by Braintree was:- "My team has let me know that Braintree is unable to support the sale of animal part supplements" (which is honestly pretty unbelievable as a serious reason to refuse an account, especially given they are owned by e-bay!).

Cheers All, Asiaplay
