While lobbying individual sites to adopt bitcoin, it is a long ardous process. I think it would be better to ask the payment solution websites to provide bitcoin as a payment option. The benefit would be that it would be a write once, run everywhere solution.
Also, since payment processors are only in the business of payment processing, it is more inline with their core business model to implement it.
Also, along the same line, we should try to get bitcoin included in the templates and frameworks that people use to create sites, like Drupal, Joomla etc.

List of sites to contact:

Top prio:

http://www.cardservicesales.com/
http://merchantwarehouse.com/

Mid prio:

http://www.nationalbankcard.com/
http://www.leadersmerchantservices.com/
http://www.chasepaymentech.com/

Low prio:

http://www.merchantone.com/
http://www.thetransactiongroup.net/
http://www.merchantexpress.com/
http://www.electronictransfer.com/
http://www.goemerchant.com/
http://www.dhdmedia.com/
https://epoch.com/en/index.html
https://klarna.com/
http://www.ipaydna.biz/
http://www.authorize.net
(sweden) http://payson.se
(scandinavia) http://www.dibs.se/

For Drupal or Joomla, a plugin should proably be created or modified. I don't have the requiste knowledge, but if someone has, it would probably help catapult bitcoin usage into the stratosphere (lol).

How payment solution websites would earn money by offering bitcoin system as an option for a merchant?

They would get buzz, for being the first payment processor to accept it. They would gain more customers, since people here prefer to pay in bitcoin, and are much more likely to buy something than the average surfer.
Bitcoin is a lot more inviting to buy with than paypal, or mastercard/visa, for two reasons: no need to find card or card reader and it is well known that people buy more when they pay with "tokens" than with "real money", since the brain handles them differently.

Sort of yes. But bit-pay.com is not a one stop payment processor. It is only for bitcoins. If bit-pay.com accepted paypal, visa, mastercard, checks etc, then it would what I was looking for

If you have any leverage at these credit card billers, Bit-pay would be willing to work with them to do their bitcoins behind the scenes.  So they can offer it, but not have to mess with it.  CCBill is another one that alot of people use.  If they are interested, have them contact us!  Thanks!

I do not. But I like your solution! That's probably what should be suggested to them. Just be ware that they may cut out the middleman in time...

We just launched our expanded beta program today.  Merchants can apply directly on our website. 

https://bit-pay.com

We don't have every feature yet, so we can't support 1000 merchants right away.  Just tell us as much as you can about your needs and we'll see if we can help!  Every integration is different, and a little custom, and we want to make sure we can give the right attention to every merchant.

And yes Alison is coming with us.  I am booking our flights tonight!

I will start a new thread on Bit-pay once Bruce puts the video up from today's show.
