Does anyone know of a US bank, or credit union, that will take the place of paypal, et al processing e-commerce donation payments?

Is this something that credit unions might be interested in?

Sam, Vinay, Michel,

What's the latest that we know regarding bank-based, crowdsource
funding baskets - for online donations? That is, is it best just to go
to our bank to set up an account for accepting donations?

Paypal and Fundable.org are are two routes which charge heavily - 7%
cut or such. Are there other free/low-cost services? If a bank is the
way to go, which bank has a good online donation service?

Any hints appreciated. I'd like to start setting up individual funding
baskets for each of the projects in the global village construction
set - about 7 baskets for now- for solar turbine, digital fab,
engine-generator, CEB, tractor, OS permaculture, fuel from biomass.

Marcin
