5)Online Billing Solutions (OBS): Allows you to take all major credit cards. After review of their site I could not find if you can sell tangible or intangibles, so I'm assuming you can do both.

Transactions can range in price from $3.00 to $100.00 and money is paid to you twice a month. http://www.online-billing.com
