ecommerce off-the-shelf software

I'm looking for software that will let me take someone's credit card, wait a month during a free trial, and then start charging the card automatically each month if they don't cancel.  I also need to generate statements that will include the standard monthly cost plus any extra services ordered during the month.  I know this is possible with a PayPal Pro account  but it's a lot of work and working with PayPal is not easy.  It seems like by now someone should have a polished accounting/ecommerce program that will do this.  

Thanks for any suggestions.

Also, if the customer's credit card has expired, the software automatically generates an email to the customer that payment cannot be made and alerts me.

Sorry, I forgot to ask - are you looking for a hosted solution or do you want to install a shopping cart on your own website?   I usually recommend the latter.  

If you need a recommendation to a hosting company - TechEvolution.  

Plus you would need to decide if you wanted PHP (usually cheaper), ASP (not used as much these days), and then ASP.NET.  PHP is usually on a *NIX machine and ASP / ASP.NET is on Windows.  If the Windows server has PHP installed, it might work.   I have not had the chance to update

Thanks Corey.

I already have a hosting provider and I use PHP.  

There won't be a shopping cart.  People will just come to the site and sign up for a $50/month service.  I'll be submitting the transaction directly to the gateway with PHP.  

I didn't see any description of the API for doing this on the Quantum Payment site.  Did I miss it?
