Merchant account, regulations, the whole works. I'm still several thousand short from a "systems upgrade" they did. However, there are some who swear that CardServices it great. If something is working for you, use it. Be aware of the risks and have options available. I know several people that are perfectly happy with PayPal. It is not a part the established financial community and catches a lot flack because of it. Doesn't mean it will work for everyone. Doesn't mean some won't get burned. Do we have those guarantees anywhere? Ron D.
