Not sure what service you're asking about, but I'm assuming that you mean
for payment gateway services.  

I've been using Authorize.Net for eons now.  Reasonable, reliable, almost
ubiquitous in ecommerce apps, plenty of docs and an easy API for where it's
not already supported.  You get on with Authnet via reseller.  I use
www.PracticePaysolutions.com because they're friendly, inexpensive and
experienced.  AuthorizeNet.com will probably list other resellers.

Your client might consider using PayPal's own merchant service, which is
slightly less expensive than other gateway services, though I've never used
it myself.

My two pennies.
