    Sadly, this thing works only if you have a normal Visa card. If you have a Students or Third-Age card or some special, limited-offer one, you're screwed.

    From current experience (running Canterlot.com) paypal is a real mine-field when it comes to accepting money. A real shame as it's the easiest system and API to work with.
    I've recently got payza (formally Alertpay) support. Payza took a bit of work, they want to review the website and you have to show evidence of things like refund policies and state what the money's being used for (nothing new to anyone that's advertised their site through Google's Adsense). You then have to wait several days whilst your site's reviewed before being allowed in as a merchant.

    However, the seem to be fine about people taking website donations. (paypal don't like that unless you're a registered charity).
    Though paypal is a pain in the rear for accepting monies, it's not really their fault at the end of the day. There are a LOT of tax implications for lots of different countries and such that they have to not turn a blind-eye to since they're so big now.

    I have nothing but positive things to say about AlertPay. I purchased a commission from someone through them because the artist's country didn't support Paypal. Alertpay actually had someone contact me to ask if I had received what I paid for. I was just blown away.

    From what it seemed it'd be similar to Paypal where you had the option to add a credit card/debit card or your bank account. D:
    I should read more into it to be sure, but it's a shame if what you said is true, there really needs to be another site like Paypal that won't be so hard to deal with (wishful thinking).

    Would Google or Amazon payments be good for something like this? Or are their terms similar to PayPal's?

    It would be very nice if there would be an option like Paypal or Alertpay. In some countries it's not as easy to get a Credit Card as it may be in the US, so for many it would be impossible to get a Premium Subscription.
