I'm building an eCommerce site, and am probably going to use Charge.com. One thing my client would like to do is process physical orders online. The volume will be low, so the other option is to get a physical terminal and have orders emailed .

Charge.com is 25.00 a month for the gateway fee and statement fee. They charge another 20 a month if you want to lease the virtual terminal. Now my eCommerce software, RedHat Interchange allows you to manually enter orders. Could this be used without paying to lease the virtual terminal?

My other question is the other extreme. If she gets only a physical terminal, can she process her online orders that way. Discount rates are usually lower for physical stores, but what are the requirements as far as order percentage goes.
