Thanks everyone for more online payment system/service options!

Mark, thanks for mentioning about the PCI/DSS compliance in relation to
this. This is really good to know. Stripe looks promising to me. Our
library is looking into removing the cash register at the circ desk and
collect all library fines in addition to services charges (such as ILL
fees for corporate members or Conference room charges for non-campus
users). So we need a solution that will let us customize the fee
categories, amounts, etc. with the least effort on us to set it up.

What did you mean by a pre-packaged solution??
