I want a website that lets me charge clients a specific amount one-time or recurring billing for a specific amount. Where do I go?


Revised

I love freshbooks too, but I cant bill by credit card on there. I want something where I can store CC info and charge for purchases.


Revised

Right, but that really isn't what I'm looking for. I'm looking for something like Freshbooks + CC checkout on site (not a third party). Something that does residual billing/charging and/or one-time billing/charges

Can you provide more information on why you think this is an answer to the question. –  ChrisF May 12 '11 at 20:42

I use Zoho Invoice for all my invoicing. Free for up to 5 invoices a month, and a manageable fee afterwards.

It will manage emails, payments, reports and, to some degree, expenses. And it has a RESTAPI allowing you to achieve whatever you may need.

Update 5/9:

Following Kirk's comment that he wasn't looking for invoicing, but actual online charging systems, I offer the 3 I used in my projects:

  1. Paypal - kinda default world wide. Don't like their (lack of) support, though.
  2. Google Checkout - allows you to use your current Google identity
  3. Amazon FPS - used it in a project that required large transactions. People can use their Amazon identity and the security it entails, including all the means of payment already listed.

Sorry I wasn't clear, invoicing isn't what I'm looking for, I'm looking to charge. –  Kirk Strobeck May 9 '11 at 20:35
    
Hi Kirk, didn't understand that from your question. I'll update my answer –  Traveling Tech Guy May 9 '11 at 23:55

Lots of places. Links: (I'd actually link them, but not allowed to post that many yet)

+1 for Freshbooks! I use it and love it. (PS I've linked them for you. Nice research.) –  msanford May 9 '11 at 15:15

@KirkStrobeck Any reason why PayPal won't work for you? You can't store the cc information, but you could still let a person pay by any amount. There are also ways you can set up an authorization through PayPal such that you could charge it again later whenever you liked. –  Kerri Shotts May 9 '11 at 21:09

Btw, but why would you want to capture cc#s? That's an awful lot of risk... –  Kerri Shotts May 9 '11 at 21:11
    
Its only risk if you hold on to them, thats why I want to use a verified service who's doing all of the protection that storing cc info entails. spreedly.com would be great, but no front-end :( –  Kirk Strobeck May 10 '11 at 17:24

I use curdbee.com. It is branded as "for freelancers", but you can remove this with the professional edition.

You would need to also buy the recurring billing module.

edit: I have not personally come across any online systems that will let you store Credit Card details because of the PCI compliance required.

No, this uses paypal and google checkout, still no CC option see.weareinto.com/6guh –  Kirk Strobeck May 12 '11 at 15:43
