Looking for a Credit-Card Reseller for my Software

Hi,

I have a commercial software program available at http://www.internet-timer.co.uk and currently have credit-card processing being performed by a contact in the USA.

I have nearly finished development of the latest edition of my software (iT3) and I'm looking for someone to help with the credit-card processing and sales support who can provide a personal touch, due to my existing credit-card processing contact being unable to continue his service with my new software products.

What is essentially required is the ability to be able to take credit-card orders from the main card types (VISA/MC/AmEx/Diners/etc), receive orders via HTML to a URL with additional data parameters passed such as name, email address and product ID. Then process the credit card transfers (typically #20 GBP, or $30 USD), and send a daily email of successful transfers along with user information taken from the online transaction.

What would be very preferable is if I could receive transfers locally from the UK so that minimal fees have to be paid for CC processing / exchange rates. Transfers would have to be made initially on a monthly basis, however these could be extended to bimonthly after everything is set up and running smoothly.

I am willing to offer a percentage of registration profits for every online transaction, as well as sufficient fees to cover processing/CC handling each month. Additionally it would be good to have a processing contact who can handle a reselling system, allowing users to sign up as an affiliate, get an account, distribute and promote the software then receive a cut in the registration fees.

For further information please contact me at the following email address. If no-one can provide such a tailoured online service for my software registration needs then can users suggest the best method I can use for online order processing from one of the main software dealers/resellers. Being situated within the UK however I do not like the look of the $60/month processing fees just to have the money transferred to my account !

Let me know...

My thanks in advance !

Thanks for the URL. I have actually now decided to go with regsoft.com and sellshareware.com, as they are tailoured specifically to the shareware concept and allow me to have tailoured URL parameters as well as a relatively cheap fixed 3% commission charge for products <=$30, which mine is.

I can recommend their support/setup services, I have received responses from all in under 12 hours, and in some cases near instant feedback. They have also kindly set up URL handling, added a hidden field processing, and have full customisation of emails. Additionally I am now entrusting them with the registration code generation for single purchases, and having a custom email sent for purhcases of 2 or more registrations so that I can handle clients personally.

All very good, considering 5 min CC validations (including AVS) and immediate order processing plus online stats. The wire transfer to the UK is only $35 each quarter, which is a reasonable expense at the sacrifice of payment frequency (which is not a major concern for me).
