I am talking to a client today who are looking into establishing a
payment system like paypal, but based on a top-up credit card. I
wondered what features you would expect from a system like that?

My personal wishlist so far:
- Must allow people without credit cards to pay you money
- Must be easily transferable to bank accounts or via ATMs without high fees
- Should ideally be currency independent / not charge you for conversion
- Must be completely skinable to add to your site
- Should come with a nice API to tie into

Anything else you'd like to see, or some information as to what annoys
you in the current systems (Nochex, Paypal, Worldpay)

I think this is a good opportunity to make it easier for all of us to
charge for our work.
