Working with US agents and commission payments

Hi,A lot of US agents make their money from commission payments. They act as a middleman and often dont do any of the payment, but pass the customer card info to us and then we process the full payment. Then we send them the commission.I dont like working this way but its pretty much the standard. Has anyone found a cost effective and simple way of sending commission payments. See More
