A while back, a company called American Information Exchange looked
into use crediting people's credit cards as a way to pay them.  It
proves that this cannot be done.

I suspect that a floating price would make credit card processing very
difficult, because my guess is that the card companies really aren't
set up for it.

With the right kind of micropayments, however, this could certainly
change.
