They give some flexibility in terms of adding your logo and the like to a template which in fact looks quite good, which is way too often overlooked.

MonsterPay have excellent fees and overall a great product with an awesome backend reporting. Signup is quick and easy and no internet merchant account is required. We also love the option of multiple currencies.
