Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I want to ask about payment processors for use in a website. The one I found on Stack Overflow was closed because it's off-topic. None of the others automatically lend themselves to this question. Any ideas?

SO is more about problem solving not crowd sourcing opinions on what software, I honestly am not sure it belongs on any of the SE sites. I could see Webmasters maybe. But it may be best to look up some solutions and just do a comparison yourself. If you're having problems implementing a payment processor and have made a legit attempt and failed then by all means SE is the place to be. – j_mcnally Mar 7 '12 at 7:18
You may also want to crowd source some forums for opinions. – j_mcnally Mar 7 '12 at 7:19

Is it a shopping question or product comparison? Shopping and comparison questions are off-topic throughout the Stack Exchange network.

If it's not a shopping question, you can try Webmasters. Read their FAQ first, before posting.

Well I'm looking for a specific solution - I don't know what my options are, but I guess the question would border pretty close to a product comparison if more than once solution fitted the bill. – Dale Burrell Mar 7 '12 at 9:43
Having just looked at Webmasters I think its OK :) thanks – Dale Burrell Mar 7 '12 at 9:49
