    Hi,
    I have created a website for a friend, and would like to create a way to accept credit card/bank payments. There is only one item to be sold on the website. I would expect maybe only one order per month, so I am looking for the cheapest option with no monthly fees.

    One option I know of is using a Business account with Paypal and web checkout.

    Are there any other options anyone uses or knows of?
    thanks!

    I'd go with paypal, its very easy to implement and lots of people use it.

    Of the options mentioned so far, I would look seriously into 2checkout (or any similar organizations). Google Checkout looks good too (and has the name-brand recognition) -- too bad it's no good for me in Canada.

    I have no experience with 2checkout, but they look pretty good from a first glance at their site. I would personally be more inclined not to go with PayPal if it can be helped.

    I read that Google Checkout is not charging seller fees until the end of the year, so that is the best deal.
