I dealt with a computer supplier that required a bank transfer. You
made the order, it gave you a reference number and you then used that
to transfer the money into his account

Anyway I wrote a similar program for the PCUG and it handles about
1000 transactions a year.

BPay turned out to be incredibly expensive for a small organization,
and security concerns squashed the use of Credit cards.

No matter how you do it, the banks want their cut, I look at it as a
private enterprise GST
