How difficult is it to integrate to merchant accounts, other than the 3 listed on Bookerville, such as CDGCommerce? Also how easy is it to switch to another provider?

Hi Ron, thanks for posting. 90+ percent of all merchant account providers will at least offer Authorize.net as one of their gateways. If they can get you on to an Authorize.net gateway with your account, then that is the single fastest and easiest way to get integrated, because it's pretty much instant.
When you say switch to another provider, do you mean switch to another merchant account, after you've already been set up with one? Again, as long as the new provider can hook you up with an Auth.net gateway, it's as simple as plugging in your new API Login and Transaction Id into your Bookerville account, and you're off to the races. The harder part will just be going through the application process for the new account - but that's out of Bookerville's control.
I have to say - have you looked into PayPros? They focus on the VR industry, so the underwriting they do for your merchant account will be ideal for your VR business. And they seem to be able to beat most of the rates we hear about for VR businesses. It's worth a quick chat with them just to see - just fill out that simple form at the bottom and Sharon Popovich over there will get in touch with you.
Let me know if you'd like to speak about this, Ok? It can get complicated...

Thanks John. That answers my question.

Is there anyway I can setup my account to work with my Stripe account?
