    I signed up with 1SC for a 30 day trial to have a clean looking checkout page, before the actual user registers with amember, (which by the way I have questions as to how to ensure the amember signup page comes after the checkout), but I was not under the impression at all that 1SC was requiring a $99 'one-time setup fee' in order to have it work with amember. Is this true?

    I've heard mediocre reviews with 1SC, so if there is a better alternative, I'm all ears.

    My goal is to have a user pay on a single page secure checkout which will increase conversion, and afterword take them to amember username and password creation form. I'm using paypalpro as the payment gateway. I wish paypal would just create their own shopping cart service like 1SC where you could customize it to your site so I wouldn't have to pay an extra monthly fee to 1SC.

    Thanks for the help and advice in advance! :)

    Yes, they really charge $99. It is hard to understand for me, but they do.
    aMember supports a lot of payment processors, not only 1SC :)

    Directions state to
    Configure "1shoppingcart" payment plugin at aMember CP -> Setup/Configuration -> 1ShoppingCart Make sure you set the same API Key in aMember CP and 1ShoppingCart Merchants CP -> My Account -> API Settings -> Your Current Merchant API Key

    However, API key does not show here in 1shoppingcart. It says his page will only be available/visible to those merchants who are subscribed to our Professional Package. So in other words it only works with amember if you subscribe to the top level $99/month 1SC !?

    I believe you should bump 1SC, not us! My opinion shall be clear from my message above.
