Is it advisable to charge customers $1 / month?

I have always been using PayPal as my payment solution which charges an arm and a leg for a $1 / month subscription, nearly a half, $0.44 will be counted as the fee for each payment (I'm not a US merchant).

I guess the only option left for me is my own credit card payment gateway? But I've never used one before so I'm not sure of the fees. Can anyone share some experience on this?

Would it be advisable to charge my customers a $1 / month subscription via credit card? What's fee per payment? Or is it more advisable to charge $12 / year?

You can give a choice to your customers: either $3 every 3 months or $6 every 6 months or a single payment of $12. $1 payments are not a good idea, regardless of the payment processor.

Another way of motivating your clients is give them very low prices. Most businesses consider it as an alternative to paid advertising.

From experience, this companies later increase their prices to more than double what you initially paid.

I think it would be better for you if you charge your customer quarterly and half yearly if you charge with this strategy then it would be comfortable for you and your customer both.

You can adopt a low price strategy for the payments for a longer period, For instance ge 1 year or 2 years...

I think you should have to try local merchant which is available in your country. It will be best for you. According to me stripe is better than paypal.

You whole ideas rubs me wrong. If I was your customer, it would leave a bad taste in my mouth. Just my opinion.

I've seen several online vendors giving discounts for full payments i.e. yearly etc so that they can cut back on fees as well.
