I thought they were using PayPal now.

WorldPay had so many issues I'm not sure how it stays in business, and 
PayPal has the extra advantage few other payment systems have:  because 
its users can have their own balance in PayPal separate from their 
credit cards and bank accounts, customers tend to spend PayPal money 
more freely than other options; it feels like play money to many.

I had my customers demanding PayPal for many years before I switched, 
and once I did the only regret was that I hadn't done so earlier.  Most 
of my customers make their living exclusively from online sales so they 
have more data than I do, and some of them earn far more than I do. 
They're in a position to know firsthand about "the PayPal Effect", and 
even if the fees are slightly higher than with other payment options the 
volume and lower payment support costs have made it strongly 
net-positive for me, and for everyone I know.
