    Just a word of warning.

    NEVER buy anything from a company over the internet without using a credit card or protected service.
    You have no protection what so ever if you pay bay any other means.

    There are other ways to pay over the internet other than credit cards like bidpay and paypal usually used by individual who sell 'things'.

    So, why would any respectable company that uses the Internet not allow you to pay by credit card or one of the responsible on-line services?

    I'd agree. Too much of a risk, despite the expected savings.

    Also you do not get any protection when paying by paypal, as highlighted by the recent SoftXPress problems.
