Payment Gateway for Subscription Model (SaaS)


1. Company based in India (Authorize.net, Braintree won't work)
2. Billing in USD in the range of $9 - $30
3. Subscription model and billing has to happen with credit card on account (stored with the payment gateway).

We require:
1. All payment processing from our website without going to third-part payment gateways like plimus or shareit.
2. Complete automation in handling billing

What are our options? Thanks in advance for your suggestion.

Bob: What's your experience with spreedly?  Do you have any insight to their business health? Are they established enough?

I ask because, with subscriptions, if you don't have full control over the credit card of the buyer, and the service you're using for subscriptions goes away, you have to get new billing info from EVERY one of your members - and that's just death for subscription based businesses.

Bob, Spreedly is like e-junkie: they're a service you use to complement a payment gateway.  Payment gateway sold separately.

I think 2Checkout works in India.
