Have you checked into the costs of starting and maintaining credit card acceptance services lately? ;-) And unfortunately, I can't afford to hang around the house all day to answer a sales line.

Your own > situation/demographics may differ. My situation does indeed differ. My software is distributed and sold entirely on the internet. And as such, credit card is the #1 method of payment, with checks coming in second. The cost of estabilishing credit card acceptance, and maintaining it, is quite high for a small one-man software company such as mine. In order to make a profit, I have to keep my operating costs as low as possible. And without credit card acceptance, and 24/7 ordering, selling on the internet is pretty much impossible. Kagi is definitely the right solution for me. Personally, I don't see why anyone would even be interested in Kagi if they weren't interested in credit card acceptance. All of the other stuff is just frills as far as I'm concerned. > I won't even comment on the "other" things Kagi does(?) for you, I don't > have a can large enough for the worms. I haven't had a problem with them - other than their response time being slow. But then you aren't paying for fast response time, or their prices might be as high as the rest of them. ;-) If you can follow instructions, and are thorough, you can hook up with Kagi fairly easily. Overall, they suit my needs just fine.
