Payment gateway recommendations

I'm new to payment gateways and was looking for some recommendations
on a quality one to use that integrates well with rails.

Thanks,

Norm

we just put up an online shop with Triple Deal Payment Services
http://corporate.tripledeal.com/

their interface is quite simple, everything goes with a few https calls
like
https://tripledeal_server_thingy.com/..blah_blah...PaymentService?
command=show_payment_cluster&merchant_name=our_shop&
merchant_transaction_id=our_id_001&client_language=EN&
payment_cluster_key=1234567890

no rails plugin or other help for that, but easy enough and
they offer a wide range of payment methods and other
backoffice functionality (like automatic billing and remainder mails)

you can put up the basics with a week of work or so

Hiya Norm ,

Have a look at http://www.activemerchant.org/ - lots of people use this
& it works well with a number of merchants.

I've used this with paypal & it worked wonderfully well.

Our paypal installation worked very well. I think the fees are a little
higher than a bank merchant account, but you may not be able to obtain a
bank merchant account if you are just starting up [this might just be
for the UK].

Tickex - the search engine for concert, sports, and theatre tickets

We're using Braintree Payment Solutions
(www.braintreepaymentsolutions.com), which is supported by the Active
Merchant plug-in, and have been quite happy with it.

The fees vary from a bit less than PayPal to a little more, depending
on the card type, whether address is verified, and so forth. But
unlike PayPay, they don't insist on imposing their brand on your
customers; it all stays in the background.

Thanks so much for the info from both of you. I'm going to give them a
real hard look at.
