Hi everyone. I'm new to this (extremely useful) forum, and I was wondering if anyone could help on a problem I've encountered. I'm just starting out as a freelancer and intend to take on Linux and web development jobs, so I've decided that being self-employed is the best route for that. However I also run a website which I'm about to upgrade and offer yearly member subscriptions for. The income from this site will be quite low, and it's just really a source of additional income; not a career in itself. However, the credit-card processing websites ask for company a incorporation number in order to register. I can't use PayPal because of their policies. I really don't want to incorporate (too much hassle), so I'm stumped as how to take payments. Does anyone have any experience in taking online credit/debit card payments whilst being self-employed?
