You need an online credit card processor - look at worldpay, optimal, etc.


Look for one suitable with your country and check if you need a merchant account or if one comes with it (like worldpay). Check both setup fees and per transaction fees/chargebacks/reserve fees. Some are real pricey and some are OK.


I recently ventured down this path myself - bit of a confusing minefield, but just check out loads (do a search on google) and you'll soon get a feel for what is good or bad.


Rule out those that are not osC friendly - perhaps start with those you alreay have osC payment modules for...


Good luck!
