it's been discussed. paypal charges way too much.

I like paypal for how easy it is to setup, and the charges aren't bad considering that most merchant accounts have a minimum use. (and compared to other methods of transferring money) But, is it possible for SPI to get a merchant account through their bank without such minimum restrictions (or a low minimum) and set up some sort of credit card processing? I know its harder than paypal, but the costs per transaction probally work out to our favor. But... is it worth the cost savings to really setup a merchant account and some means of processing versus setting up paypal?

[treasurer: thread is important because CC payments from countries outside of USA is supposedly easiest way to donate.]
