So you have pondered over it a bit at sehree and a little more during the iftar tea. Working 9-5 just doesn't suit your temperament and you would rather be your own boss. You heard of it, read about it and now dying to try it. The Internet entrepreneur-ship makes sense to you. You are certain that you've got what it takes to succeed in the digital economy. Good!
"Now wait a second... Don't I need an Internet merchant account to accept credit cards", you think out loud. Luckily, NO YOU DON'T! Third party processors can handle your payments. For your convenience, I have compiled a list of credible processors. Please download it at http://thunder.prohosting.com/~rafay007/rates.zip. The zipped file has 1 MS-WORD document.
If the 9-5 work schedule isn't helping, then Internet just might have the solution. Don't be afraid. Give it a try!
Word of Caution: Third party processors do charge a lot per transaction. It is recommended that once your business picks up, apply for a merchant account.
