We pay for a whole host of stuff on a monthly basis at PutPlace. Everything from hosting to dynamic DNS. All those payments are processed by debit a credit card based on a number stored at the vendors site. So for all those annual and monthly payments I want the payment to be processed through a gateway where I can authorise payment before my credit card is debited. In this way I can cut off a given provider without cutting up my credit card or withhold payment for poor service.
Would the merchants like it? Probably not, would you, the customer like it? Yessirree.
