SecurePay is one that I've had experience with:

You buy credit card transactions in "lots", say $6000 for 10k  

It's expensive at first blush, but it's cheaper for small businesses  
than hiring your own staff to manage payment collection services (and  
that was before PCI).

The PCI standard is a good thing, IMO. On one level, it's ensuring  
that credit card transactions are more secure, on the other hand it's  
making credit card transactions more expensive so people will be more  
likely to use cash at a bricks-and-mortar store.
