I'm bootstrapping a micro-startup hosting service with very, very little capital.
All of my customers will have recurring billing with a possible trial period. Initially I integrated with CheddarGetter however I found out that it would be impossible for me to get a gateway account for the first few months since my expected revenue would be so low.
I've looked into PayPal and Amazon's payment services. Both look good, except I don't like the idea of having to break the customer out of my site, but for no monthly fee I can't complain too much.
Which would be the better option? PayPal seems to have clout and acceptance, but I'm already heavily leveraged on the Amazon web services platform and have their branding across my site.
Are there other payment processing services out there that cater to businesses with limited credit/capital/revenue?
