We are running 10 WA sites and would like to use DirectConnect Gateway for our merchant processing. We can't switch to this gateway until it is enabled on your site.
Have you thought of a fee-based service for integration of alternate gateways. We would pay a nice fee so we don't have to change processors and gateways just to use wild apricot.
Adding a new gateway doesn’t align with our current focus for the product.
Supporting each payment systems takes time and resources away from our development and support teams to provide the better, more reliable service.

I created a new thread as your post was not related to Elavon.
Is this the gateway you are talking about? http://www.directconnectps.com/Software-Developers
Now that we have a thread for it we will see how many other clients might be interested in using it. (And of course, you having 10 sites gives it some starting weight already!)
We will also take a look its integration capabilities and research a bit how popular it is in general. (It did not get onto our radar for top 10 in US when we did a recent review)
The fee option is not really feasible, sorry - for two reasons: 1) even to recoup our costs we would have to charge thousands of dollars to do proper design, development, testing, security, documentation. 2) It would mean not ding something else voted by other clients
