Credit Card Processing Recommendation

I second for Authorize.net.  They have a building down near Draper/Sandy and
seem to do very well.  The company I work for uses them for thousands of
processes per month without any issues.  I think in the last four years,
I've seen them go down once and it was for a very short amount of time.  .

They do have a virtual terminal you can use to plug in credit card numbers,
and then they have integration you can do with your own admin system or
software.
