I'm providing some technical guidance to a non-profit organisations.

They want to be able to offer their members the ability to pay via credit card online.

Before they jump in and use PayPal because that is all that they are aware of, I wanted to check what other good choices are open to them.

Thank you for any good guidance.

Robbie.

If I were an organizations accepting donations, I would stick to using PayPal.
PayPal users, although have built complete websites and forums full of complains, but its logo still creates a sense of trust. Buyers don't see PayPal with the same eyes as developers and sellers do.

Unless the organization you're dealing with is a brand in itself (by brand I mean well know amongst net users and potential donors), having a PayPal button will do more good than any harm.

The only not so great thing about it is that PayPal charges a fee for receiving donations as well:- 30 cents + 2.9%
