I am the webmaster volunteer on a site for a local non-profit organization and we're starting a total re-design of the site. One of the items that has come up is on-line donations. Right now they use a company that handles the credit card transactions via a button on this site. We'd like to use someone else as while it's functional (the credit cards are charged) their service is somewhat flakey and not as responsive as we'd hope for. <img src=/S/disappointed.gif border=0 alt=disappointed width=15 height=15>

I'd need a method whereby someone can complete a secure form, offer their credit card info, etc., and receive acknowledgement. It's not a shopping cart thing but similar. I'd also like to have it such that the donor could allow regular withdrawals from their bank account or charges to their card (like $10/month until canceled).

Since it's a non-profit it needs to be somewhat inexpensive but at this point, I'd just like to know more about the mechanism involved and what tools are available to do this. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
