Re: Credit Card charity donations

A friend and I are in the process of building an e-commerce site based solely on accepting donations for charities around the world. We will sponsor any charity; big or small. We say no to nobody. Our fee will be in the 2-5% range as it costs money to build and administer a site of this magnitude. Let us know what you think.

>A number of people from around the world would like to make small donations to us (say $10 or $20) but as yet we don't have the facility to do this. We're trying to find out a way for people to donate to us - they can't send us cheques since the bank charges can more than wipe out the entire donation!
