Help me decide what sort of internet gateway to use

This will help me determine whether it's worth it to go with another party.
There is a lot of paypal hatred out there and I was wondering how many will be turned off if I use paypal's low rates.

Until the website looks big enough and legit enough (like newegg.com or something) I prefer to go through paypal.

I would definitely prefer PayPal for its safety and name recognition.  PayPal can also process credit cards of people who don't have PayPal accounts (I believe) which is convenient.  I'm wary of PayPal, but I'm even more worried about giving my credit card information to a company I don't know a lot about.

I am wary of every entity in the process but at this point they know where to find me if they want to...my data is spread to the four corners of the earth...
