Well here’s an early announcement that we now have our own Merchant account which means we’ll no longer be dealing with 3rd party credit card processors. It’s just going to be a matter of setting everything up and we’ll be ready to accept credit card payments right from our site and also automatically charge credit cards each month. So once that happens we’ll accept Paypal which will obviously still send you to the Paypal site but credit card handling will be handled on our site.
Now I’m sure some of you are wondering why it took us so long to do this. The answer is simply we did not do enough credit card transactions each month to warrant the need for our own merchant account. However over the past 6 months or so we’ve seen a large spike in the amount of users using credit cards. This is most likely due to the fact we’ve also seen Fantastic growth over this time frame as well and we thank everyone for their continued support.
So we hope everyone who has been paying by credit card each month enjoys the fact it will no longer be necessary to leave our site to pay via credit card!
