    Some hosts provide all you need, have you checked to see what your host offers?
    I didn't read the full thread, has anyone mentioned security certs? I presume you'd need to sort that out too.

    A friend uses [SIZE=-1] and seems happy with it afaik.

    If you are thinking of doing the whole CC processing thing yourself, read up on the PCI DSS standard. If you are unsure of any bit of it, go with a 3rd party processor. You can be liable for some very hefty fines if caught.

    That's an understatement :)

    I was chatting to several people in AIB about the entire thing and the figures they gave me were scary!

    What kind of things you mean..... So its best to let a third party look after the billing end as in pay pal or realex etc.....

    If you have a bad track record with security / chargebacks you will be penalised by all the payment providers.

    Even if you go down the Realex route you can end up in trouble if your security is compromised, which is why 3d secure etc., is so important

    Do you really want to be fined $5 per card number + the total value of all the dodgy transactions?
