    One of the best plugins for payment gateways. The best part is that it easily integrates into your own theme and no custom theme is mandatory. I would like to specially mention the great support (from Andrey Kharanenka) I got during integration to my project. Creating orders is easy, creating offers is easy and the database is quite easy to understand. Great plugin. Highly recommended.
