So I realize that the payment gateway is integrated into the BC admin. However I have a client that would like to host multiple sites under one account (to have the same content display across each site). The issue here is that they have various catalogues in their e-commerce store that are filtered through to different businesses.
Other than hosting e-commerce elsewhere, do any of you gurus possibly have some insight into how this might be achieved?
And if this can't be achieved with BC, can anybody recomment a good external e-commerce solution that I could integrate with the rest of the sites hosted on BC?
It's not possible to use multiple payment gateways within the same BC site. What you can do is create a new site for each payment gateway and skin the site designs the same. This would give the end user the appearance of being on the same site, but there is no way to process multiple payment gateway transactions in a single checkout transaction. I don't know this for a fact but I'm pretty confident doing so would violate the credit card companies terms and is not PCI complaint. I bet you won't find this feature in any off the shelve ecommerce solutions for this reason alone.

Thank you, Steve.
This means, of course, that my main requirement - having the same content display across multiple URLS - wouldn't be possible to do with having multiple stores, correct?
There is another work-around that some e-commerce sites have implemented but it does depend on how many payment gateways you need.
Payment gateways are limited to 1 gateway per Domain Country. So if you have multiple domain names on one site, then you can change the domain country setting for the second domain. This will allow you to add a different payment gateway for the second domain:
Domain Country setting
Payment Gateway country setting:
This of course has it's limitations also. You need to consider the currency for the country and also your layouts/templates that have been created based on the country.
Hope this helps.
Sorry for the delay. The only issue I see here is whether your paypal account is setup to accept the different currencies and ofcourse any conversion fees.
Other than that, it should be fine.
