Okay iv looked at a LOT of different payment solutions. My options are slightly limited because my company is based in Egypt and do not have access to a US bank account.... nevertheless we have a massive amount of traffic and want to get into e commerce here.
So far the payment solutions that i have looked at (2checkout and CashU) both use a system whereby you input your product details and price on their system and they automatically generate a "buy" button for your website.
Now the problem with this is that you have to generate a different button for every possible price that exists. Im offering over 20 services for multiple lengths of time (and hence multiple prices). That means ill have to generate something like over 200 buttons!!! FOR EACH SERVICE!!!
Not to mention the fact that the price variable in the code that they give you cannot be changed dynamically.
This means that if i ever want to offer discounts over ALL of my products ill have to remake all of these buttons!!!
Either im REALLY misunderstanding something - or absolute idiots designed these systems.
PLEASE HELP and if anyone could give me better payment solutions or a workaround these problems i would be really greateful.

a quick look at 2checkout shows that they allow you to upload a CSV of all your products:
and also that you can pass parameters dynamically:
(you can't pass in the price, but that would be insecure anyway, and - presumably - you can just knock 20% off your entire product CSV if you want to use sitewide discounts?)
