is there any thought to support PAYPAL for payments?

    We've thought of supporting paypal but our motivation to do so is solely based on our interest to shorten the time it takes for a customer of CG to start billing their customers.

    Do you want to use paypal or do you have to use paypal? The reason I ask is simply because of the cost to you as well as your customers' experience of using your application. Paypal is more expensive for you. Traditional use of paypal requires that your customer leaves your application to go to paypal and then back to your application. People generally don't like that. It just doesn't feel good.

    I currently only use paypal. but very limited in its use.

    If I had a tool like CheddarGetter in operation, I would probably use exclusively.

    I'll need to evaluate whether it is cheaper. is it a matter of scale of need? all i would need inititally is to play around and build my system - I would really only have 36 transactions a year. but if I had the capability, I could do more.

    You can play around with CG all you want without a gateway. CG will just simulate it's interaction with a gateway.

    Before you start using CG for real, you would need a gateway. You can set one up with Authorize.Net in just a couple of days.

    That said, we do intend to implement paypal as a supported gateway but it might be a month or two.
