Credit Card Processing

We currently process directly from QB (Premier) using Intuit (Innovative Merchant Services), The integration is seamless, but expensive.
We are considering switching to another provider but want to continue
the seamless integration.
Any suggestions for A) add-ons to handle the QB integration and B) cc processors?
Anything we should be looking to avoid? Peter Secor CFO SkinCare Fundamentals snipped-for-privacy@skincarefun.com 888-388-7546

I'd definitely switch to a cheaper merchant, unless it really is as seamless as you say, i.e. QB scans in and processes the card automatically. But if it's the same deal as mine where you have to enter the transaction manually from the payment screen, then it's not worth paying a premium for Intuit's rates, which are misleading to say the least.

How much is your time worth? IMS is the only real merchant service that is integrated seamlessly into QB. Others claim to be but don't usually work. If you switch to a cheaper one you will lose the seamless integration. This means manually entering each payment or switching to daily sales receipts. Time is money.
There are alternative payment forms available from Intuit that integrate with your existing IMS contract. Look into IPN for eChecks instead of credit cards. Each transaction costs 50 cents.
