AFAIK the best equivalent alternative to PayPal is 2CO (2Checkout.com), 
but their rates are rather high.  I agree with Patrick -- why don't you 
(or your client) get a proper merchant account with a gateway? 
PracticePaySolutions.com offer good rates, using Authorize.Net as a 
gateway, and have always given good customer service in my experience. 
It's a faq, so you might also search thelist archives for other suggestions.
