>From the FAQ https://payment.firepay.com/surefire/ccs/reg/faq.jsp#faq4 :
"Can I use my existing merchant account with this service?
No. SureFire Commerce Payment Processing is an integrated merchant account
service. In addition to the processing of transactions, SureFire Commerce
Payment Processing tracks transaction information to allow SureFire Commerce
Payment Processing to automatically record credit card payments and credit
card expenses. "
I guess by "Merchant Account" they mean their own integrated one. From
experience, and certainly in the UK, this service can be used without having
a merchant account with your bank.
