There are services that let you accept credit cards without going through
the trouble and expense of getting a merchant account.

The one I use is called CCNow (  Their only restriction is 
that you must be selling something physical (eg not weekly access to your 
site or downloadable software).  They take something like 8% to cover their 
costs and mail you checks for the rest.

I had a merchant account and online CC processing service before this, and 
the cost was over $250/month for all the crap.  If you're low to medium 
volume, then commission based services like CCNow (I'm sure there are many 
others) are a viable way to go.
