I'm a member of a creative writing group. We are currently organising a creative writing competition and we want to go international with it.
Our problem is how can we effectively receive both entries AND paymets on line. We have received interest in our competion from as far afield as USA, South Africa, and Australia.
From a practical point of view the competion will be open for no more than six weeks with an entry fee of £5.00 so it is not really worth our while setting up a proper credit card payment system.
We have looked at CCNow but it deals only in tangiable merchandise. We have also looked at Yahoo PayDirect but it dosen't seem to fit the bill. The closest I have come to finding a soloution is PayPal but I am concerned that potential contestants might not want to set up PayPal accounts.
