Dear collected geniuses:
I am wondering what the cheapest and best payment gateway is that is TRANSPARENT (i.e. where one doesn't leave the ubercart site). Paypal Standard and GoogleCheckout all require one to leave the site to check out. The PayPal upgrade to have it all within the site is $30/month which is a lot of money. 2Checkout, also, makes one leave the site. (Also, even if one customizes a paypal page, they infuriatingly make the "pay without PayPal account" link excruciatingly hard to find on the page).
Is one left with only authorize.net or is there a better gateway that I should look to? Basically it is a startup store, but one that wants to keep the checking-out part of it as cheap and clean as possible--and branded to the site.
Any time anyone jumps off a site to another site (e.g. paypal) it feels a little like the site is a "loving-hands-at-home-do-it-yourselfer" to quote a friend.... So we are looking for a cheap and easy alternative.
