Implemented multiple payment handling on my side/evening project! Notes:

Stripe: Super easy. Look at that, I'm taking credit cards!

PayPal: Ah PayPal, my old friend! Just need double up on IPN and return variable verification in case either barfs.

Amazon: Initial form needs a signature. Well, add a roundtrip to the server based on form changes. Usual server verification stuff. Done!

Google Checkout: Pass order details to server. Create XML payload with cryptographic signature, submit to Google's servers on the backend. Get redirect URL for individual user. Pass custom URL back to browser to move user to actual checkout process. Catch return data, verify with server....what the fuck, Google. Lighten up. Nobody uses Google Checkout anyway, I give up.

I work in PHP, much to everyone's regret (although it's a framework built up over the years on Flashbang work).

If you just need credit card stuff, Stripe is magically easy. Their Python lib: https://stripe.com/docs/api?lang=python#top

I do amateur photography but I love my 30" Dell. Get a spyder3 or any calibrator and the color space is awesome.

I wrote up my Hackintosh build from last weekend. Warning: This will bore you to tears unless you're interested in building your own! http://www.matthewwegner.com/building-a-hackintosh/

Great writeup - thanks for posting it. 8 external drives on the old box?! You're a one man data center. :)
