InterPay paves way through credit card maze

According to Gray, a six-month statement of business activities is just one hurdle thrown in front of fledgling e-commerce merchants who apply for credit card processing authorisation.

"If you're a startup, forget it," Gray said.

As a result, Gray predicted that InterPay, the alternative offered by his e-commerce company Graycorp, will have signed up more than 1500 young or radical e-commerce companies by the end of 2000.

Web-based businesses that sign up for the 128-bit encrypted InterPay gateway are only required to submit a two-page overview of the company's business strategies, Gray said, explaining that Graycorp's "extremely close" partnership with St George Banking Group ensured streamlined gateway-authorisation processes.

Payments for all international credit cards are possible via the interface-customisable gateway, although all payments are processed in Australian dollars, Gray said.

According to Graycorp, implementing the InterPay system does not require any additional software or hardware. No sign-up charges apply, but clients are charged $39 per month, as well as 80 cents per transaction.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
